2011 British Formula Ford champion Scott Malvern has announced a late deal to compete in the Protyre Formula Renault BARC Championship.

Malvern dominated the Dunlop MSA Formula Ford Championship of Great Britain last year, taking eighteen wins in twenty-four races, including victory in all the Formula Ford Eurocup meetings and victory at the Formula Ford Festival.

All winter Malvern has been working hard to try and get the budget for a step up the single seater ladder, looking at various options including GP3, Formula Two and British Formula 3. It looked as though Malvern would end up missing out in 2012, but a late deal has seen him make the step up to slicks and wings racing in the club-level Formula Renault BARC championship.

Malvern will run with the Patrick Cullen Racing team, who will be a satellite team to Cliff Dempsey Racing, the team with whom Malvern finished runner up in Formula Ford in 2010. Malvern will join fellow Formula Ford champion Chris Middlehurst in the CDR team, as well as American Trent Hindman.

Talking to the, Malvern said: “I’m really pleased to be able to say I am racing again this year, its a massive relief after what has been a very long winter trying to find somewhere to continue racing. It is important for me at this stage of my career to ensure that I race every year and BARC Renault offers the best value for me to get some slicks and wings experience, its a very late deal so we still have lots of work to do to catch up but I’m sure once we find our feet then we will be in a strong position.”
