The 15-year-old spent 2018 racing in the Junior Saloom Car Championship finishing 5th in the Drivers’ Standings.
Taylor will now look to increase his experience by stepping up to the Ginetta Junior category.
“It’s a big step up to the Michelin Ginetta Junior Championship but I still feel very confident.” said Taylor.
“In my first season in the championship with SVG Motorsport, my target is to try and get at least one podium finish. I just need to gain experience and put my mark down for next year, as this is firmly a two year plan for us.”
SVG Motorsport have ben racing in Ginetta categories since 2016 but this will be their first campaign competing in the Junior category.
Team owner, Andy Johnson said, “We at SVG Motorsport are really excited to have Frankie Taylor racing with us this year, after what can only be described as a fantastic start to his racing career last year. He was definitely on for a top three points finish until injuries sadly ended his season early.”
“Throughout the year he showed great speed and commitment, and with a full season he should show his full potential. SVG Motorsport are excited to be joining the most prestigious paddock in the UK and we are looking forward to helping Frankie achieve his goals.”
