National FF1600 season for Macpherson
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!”
