Search for a Star win­ner cho­sen for FF1600 drive

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

The win­ner of the first Search for a Star Schol­ar­ship at Cas­tle Combe, and re­cip­i­ent of a par­tially funded 2019 For­mula Ford drive has been cho­sen.

Matt Hal­lam beat four other con­tenders on an assess­ment day at Combe. It in­volved driv­ing around the Wilt­shire cir­cuit in a Ford Fo­cus Zetec S while be­ing as­sessed by a rac­ing in­struc­tor and one-to-one in­ter­views.

The 20-year-old, who made his FF1600 de­but at Combe this year aboard a Rey­nard FF, will con­test the lo­cal se­ries next year in a Wilt­shire Col­lege-run Spec­trum.

Hal­lam said: “It feels re­ally good and I hope that I can get some good re­sults. I feel very lucky and glad that I’ve won but I’ve driven up against some tough peo­ple, on the track they were re­ally even.

“Hope­fully I can get pro­gres­sively quicker and go for out­right podi­ums.”
