JHR Developments have re-signed Sennan Fielding for their 2016 MSA Formula campaign.
Fielding started racing for JHR Development back in 2012, when the then car rookie came runner up in the Ginetta Junior Championship.
Last year, Fielding switched to the MSA Formula for the series’ inaugual season, once again teaming up with JHR.
“I’m really excited to be staying with JHR, and I genuinely believe we’re going to have a great season together,” said Fielding.
“In 2015, we encountered some bad luck early on which put us on the back foot and meant we couldn’t capitalise on the pace we had, but the team did a superb job and all the boys worked tremendously hard to give me a reliable and race-winning car.
An impressive come back late on in the season saw the Chesterfield driver take fourth in the championship, after eight top three finishes in eleven starts and a hat-trick of summer victories.
The team hope to continue the momentum they saw at the end of the season into their second campaign.
“Sennan is a dyed-in-the-wool racer who scarcely put a foot wrong in 2015,” said JHR team principal Steven Hunter. “We are all delighted to have him back on board.
“He has always displayed incredible consistency and invariably makes the most of the equipment at his disposal. His racecraft is exceptional and his attacking and defending first-rate. In my mind, Sennan was the standout driver of last season and I have no doubt at all that he will be a title contender in 2016.”
Fielding spent the winter trying to rase sponsorship to continue in 2016, and will have the ongoing support from Amigos this year.
“The best way to repay JHR and Amigos’ support would be to go out there and win the championship.”
“It’s clearly going to be another tough season with an extremely high-calibre field of drivers and teams, but the title is unquestionably our goal. For that, we’ll need to win races, score regular points and podium finishes – which was one of our trump cards last year – and we’ll also need a little bit of luck, which is something we lacked in 2015. The key will be to make sure we come away with three solid results from every weekend”
