Exeter youngster Harry Tincknell will challenge for the 2010 Formula Renault UK title with the same team as he claimed the 2009 Graduate Cup with, as well as the Winter Series title.
18 year old Tincknell, who is managed by Le Mans star Allan McNish has confirmed that he be returning with CRS Racing for the upcoming season, and with his decision, hopes the continuity of remaining with the same team will help his quest for the overall title. Tincknell commented “I'm really happy to have been able to re-sign with CRS Racing and build on all our hard work last season,”
Harry went on to add: “This year I will have the same core team around me: we've developed a really strong relationship and work well together. We will also have two new engineers, which will add even more experience to the team. It should be an exciting year.”
Harry has set his aims for the season ahead – the overall title, but he knows that there is a lot of hard work in front of him to ensure this dream happens, “This season, winning the overall title is the goal, but I'm not going to be complacent: I will still have to fend off those who competed last year, and any quick rookies that have joined the championship for 2010. There is still a lot of hard work to do pre-season and on the track.”
Andrew Kirkaldy is also pleased that Harry has re-signed for the 2010 season, as he was impressed with the progress the highly talented youngster made during the 2009 season, “We're delighted to have Harry racing for CRS Racing again this coming season. He made huge progress last year, and his talent has shone through. We're looking forward to working closely with him again and developing a race-winning formula.”
As well as the news of Harry re-signing with CRS Racing, the MSA have noticed his undoubted talents by electing him onto the MSA Elite UK squad, the perfect way for 2010 to start. Harry will work with the CRS Racing team during the season to build on their 2009 exploits, which included Pole Position at Brands for the very first race, 11 out of 20 Graduate Cup wins, 4 overall podiums and 2 fastest laps, with Harry taking the lap record at Oulton Park.
