Will Rochford will make his car racing debut in the Ginetta Junior series in 2019 racing with Total Control Racing.
The 14-year-old impressed in the Ginetta Junior Scholarship event in October and got through to the final day despite only ever previously having one test day in a Ginetta G40.
Speaking of his announcement Rochford said, “I wanted to get into motorsport because I’ve always loved cars and driving. I love speed and I’m very competitive. I’ve chosen the Michelin Ginetta Junior Championship as I absolutely loved the Ginetta G40 after driving it in my first test and the Scholarship.”
“I like how professional the championship is too and it’s a great place for me to start my career. With no racing or karting experience, I’m using my first season to learn all I can. I want to drive smoothly and consistently, and my aim is to see improvement with every race.”
Total Control Racing team manager, Lee Brookes said, “Everyone at Total Control Racing is delighted that Will has decided to join us this year as he starts his motorsport career with a first season in the Michelin Ginetta Junior Championship.”
“While Will has no previous experience in any other form of motorsport, he has shown a real willingness to learn. We are looking forward to working with him and we hope that he can have a great season with us.”
