Ladell showed speed and talent last year, coming close to a podium on a number of occasions and finishing fifth overall in his debut season, and second in the graduates’ category.
“I’m definitely targeting the top three in the championship and know the areas where I need to improve,” Ladell said. “A fraction more pace in qualifying so I’m starting that bit higher up the grid and better consistency in my results. With that I know the podiums and hopefully even a few wins will start to come although, as I discovered last year, the UK Clio Cup is massively competitive. It’s down to me.”
Ladell is the second driver that WDE Motorsport have announced within a week, after Rory Green was signed to continue with the team too.
“Continuity plays a huge part in achieving the big results so naturally we are delighted to have Charlie joining Rory with us again,” said team principal Wayne Eason. “Charlie’s speed and aggression last year were very evident – on occasion he even had out triple champion Paul Rivett looking over his shoulder – and with some nurturing he could definitely become one of the top names on the grid in 2016.”
