Jack Butel will continue to race for JHR Development in the MSA Formula Championship after securing sponsorship from Yuasa.
Yuasa is a leading battery manufacturer, linked with British Touring Car Championship outfit, Team Dynamics. Good news for young Butel, who will be hoping to benefit from the opportunities that will bring.
Butel finished the 2015 season in 18th, racing in the second half of the season for JHR Development, and hopes staying with the team for the upcoming season will work to his advantage.
“To be more a part of the touring car scene is a really big deal for me,” said Butel. “Especially with all the added exposure it will bring, and I’ll definitely be looking to pick up a few pointers from the likes of Matt Neal and Gordon Shedden.”
“I’m so glad that I’m racing with JHR… Because we only joined them halfway through last year we didn’t really get to grips setting up the car to my specifications, but now we can hit the ground running in 2016.”
The 2016 car will display Yuasa colours and feature a number of other sponsors including FAI Auto Parts, Draper Tools, First Line, UAN, itgroup, Comma, and Express Autoparts.
“The car is going to look awesome and really stand out,” said Butel. “It will definitely be in the running for the best looking car on the MSA Formula grid.”
Jack will be hoping that’s not the only award the car will be in the running for…
