Aaron Thompson will race for Westbourne Racing in the Clio Cup for 2019 having moved from Matrix Motorsport.
Thompson had a strong debut season in the Clio Cup in 2017 scoring 113 points on his way to finishing 13th in the Drivers’ standings but he had a tougher 2018, only scoring 22 points.
Speaking of his deal Thompson said, “The Westbourne name is one of the most successful in Clio Cup history – the results don’t lie and they are also excellent when it comes to race car preparation and driver development.”
“There’s a proper family environment there and I’m delighted to be part of their line-up for 2019’s Clio Cup – I’m determined to use my third season in the championship to remind people of what I’m made of again.”
Now moving to Westbourne Racing, Thompson will be part of a title challenging team who will regularly be able to fight for wins and podiums.
“The last two seasons haven’t worked out the way I’d hoped and it would have been easy to call it a day. But I’m no quitter, I’ve got a very supportive family behind me – thanks in particular to my little sister Holly for being so pro-active behind the scenes.” said Thompson.
“There’s unfinished business on my part and this Westbourne deal has definitely put the bounce back in my step.”
Westbourne Racing have already announced the signings of Ben Colburn and Finlay Robinson for 2019 and Thompson now completes their line-up.
Team Principal James Colborn said, “We’re delighted to welcome Aaron into our team for 2019. Results the past two seasons have probably not reflected his abilities and we are confident that the Westbourne environment can help him rekindle his form.”
“Certainly we look forward to seeing Aaron, Ben and Finlay working together to achieve the best results possible for themselves and also Westbourne in the teams’ championship.”
