F1 exhaust man set for Formula Ford season
A karter responsible for building exhausts for the Mercedes and Mclaren-honda F1 teams will make his Formula Ford 1600 debut this year.
Luke Stark, who works for SST Technology and also works on parts that head to Indycar, has a Van Diemen RF99 and will look to complete the full national calendar with Linton Stutely’s Enigma Motorsport team.
“I’ve been racing since I was eight years old but I’m 6ft 2in so karting was always a bit difficult with weight,” said Stark. “My dad used to race FF1600 and had his own team.”
Stark says seat time is the key to this season as he looks to get up to speed in his first year: “We want to do the whole national, but with my lack of experience we want to be getting as much track time as possible. I’m happy with where we are sat.”
