Morris Aiming For Winter Series Title After Strong European Debut

Seb Morris is targeting the 2012 Protyre Formula Renault BARC Winter Series title after a highly competitive European debut at Spa-Francorchamps.

Morris, who finished third overall in the main BARC championship with five wins to his name, made an impressive bow in the Formula Renault 2.0 Northern European Cup last weekend.

The 16 year old Welshman starred in the second race in particular, finishing eleventh overall in the 36 car grid despite running on slick tyres in difficult wet conditions.

Now the Ginetta Ambassador’s focus turns to the four-round Winter Series, in which he’ll be hoping to secure the title to cap off a strong maiden season in ‘slicks and wings’ competition.

“Spa was an amazing experience,” said Morris. “Race two was fantastic, it was a massive challenge with slicks on a wet track – only the second time in my career I’ve done that – but it was amazing to almost come away with a top ten finish on my debut weekend in Formula Renault NEC.

“Hopefully we’ll have a really good Winter Series, I’m going into it aiming to challenge for every win possible and have a really strong end to the year. I think doing well in the Winter Series could actually be more important for me than the main season, as everyone looks at what you’re doing at the end of the year for the following season.”
