Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Scot­tish teenager Michael Macpher­son will make his Bri­tish Rac­ing and Sports Car Cham­pi­onship Na­tional For­mula Ford 1600 de­but this year af­ter sign­ing with Kevin Mills Rac­ing.

Macpher­son, 17, grad­u­ated to cars from kart­ing in 2017 when he com­peted in Scot­tish FF1600 for Gra­ham Brun­ton Rac­ing, fin­ish­ing fifth in the stand­ings.

The High­land driver sat out last sea­son due to bud­get con­straints but raced in the Fes­ti­val for GBR be­fore com­pet­ing in a one-off Cham­pi­ons of Brands meet­ing with KMR, record­ing a best fin­ish of third.

KMR took Mazda Road to Indy shootout fi­nal­ist Michael East­well to sec­ond in last year’s Na­tional cham­pi­onship, while Michael Moy­ers claimed a sec­ond suc­ces­sive Wal­ter Hayes Tro­phy win for the team.

Team boss Kevin Mills said: “Af­ter fin­ish­ing third on his de­but, it be­came a pri­or­ity for us to keep Michael [for] 2019. Here’s hop­ing he can get the same re­sults as the other Michaels we’ve had in our team!”
