Northern Irish karting star Jack Young will make his car racing debut in the Renault UK Clio Cup Junior series with the MRM Team.
Young, who is a British and Northern Irish karting champion, hasn’t raced since 2014. He’s using the short Clio Cup Junior 2017 championship to “warm-up” for 2018.
“I’ve tested the Clio Cup Junior and really like the speed fo the car,” he said.
“It is a very different sensation to karting but I got on with it very quickly and have a few more tests to gel with it even more.
“I’m looking to do this as a warm-up ahead of 2018 and believe it will be very competitive racing. MRM are also a really professional and friendly team.”
The MRM squad is also competing in selected rounds of the senior series, running Brett Lidsey at Thruxton.
The postponed 2017 Renault UK Clio Cup Junior series will begin on the 9th/10th of September at Brands Hatch.
