F1 ex­haust man set for For­mula Ford season

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

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.”
