Ford Fi­esta fron­trun­ner Good­ing moves to Minis

Autosport (UK) - - CLUB AUTOSPORT - MARK PAUL­SON

Ford Fi­esta star Harry Good­ing will step up to Mini Chal­lenge JCW ti­tle-win­ning team Jam­sport for 2019.

Good­ing won the Fi­esta Ju­nior ti­tle with Jam­sport in 2016, and claimed a class crown in the BRSCC Fi­esta se­ries this sea­son with the team, which also car­ried

Ant Whor­ton-eales to JCW hon­ours in the Mini se­ries.

Good­ing tested an ex-louis Doyle Mini JCW run by Jam­sport at Don­ing­ton Park last month.

“It’s a bit dif­fer­ent to what I’ve been used to, but it was a re­ally great ex­pe­ri­ence,” said the 16-year-old.

“They are a bit of a hand­ful, es­pe­cially through the Craner Curves. You want to push it to its lim­its and have those sorts of side­ways mo­ments to know how the car re­acts when it’s been pushed too far.”

Good­ing, who missed out on the over­all Fi­esta ti­tle at the fi­nal round, in­tends to test at each Mini Chal­lenge venue over the win­ter. “You’ve got to be pre­pared,” he said. “It’s a bit of a step up from what

I’ve been used to, so I’ve got to step ev­ery­thing up and just work a bit harder for it.”

Good­ing will be joined on the grid by Volk­swa­gen Rac­ing Cup driver Matt Wil­son. The 23-yearold was third in the VW stand­ings and will race with new team

JWB Mo­tor­sport.

Jac May­bin will also com­pete in the se­ries again next year after fin­ish­ing eighth this sea­son, and will re­main with the Ex­celr8 squad.
