Lucas said, ‘we have had a great year in 2022, we have now almost completed the development testing and feel that we will come back faster and stronger this year.  2023 looks like an even bigger race calendar than last year, incorporating a local track championship, Castle Combe, has been a conscious decision. I hope to drive further interest and passion for Formula Ford racing locally, I am very excited to see how many more fans we can attract to the track this year and see how I compete against very experienced Castle Combe racers. 

James Oldfield – team owner of Oldfield Motorsport said, “We’re delighted to have Lucas back racing with us again. He had a very strong season last year, and we are certainly looking forward to hitting the track again, for what will no doubt be another very competitive season of FF1600. Lucas is now in his 3rd full season of FF1600. With growing experience and maturity to go with his talent, we are confident of more great performances and results for Lucas in 2023.”

If any local business would like to host a hospitality event or promote their brand on the car, I would love to hear from them.  You can check out my website, or email me directly on [email protected].’
