Andy Richardson Makes Single-Seater Switch For 2013

1 Mins read

Andy Richardson will be making the switch to single-seaters after a deal to join the Dunlop MSA Formula Ford Championship was secured on the eve of the opening round at Brands Hatch.

“When the opportunity arose to enter Formula Ford, it was too good to turn down and this is a great way for me to try my hand at single-seaters,” Richardson said. “We have been working hard to make the deal happen for some time, and have to thank Ford, Mygale and ATL for their support in putting it all together.”

Richardson recently participated in the Ginetta GT Supercup with his family team and is looking forward to the latest chapter in his racing career.

“There is no doubt that this is the biggest challenge that the team has faced,” he said. “We are going straight into the first race meeting of the season with no testing and with a car we will have just collected, so we are going to be learning all weekend.

“As a racing driver, I only go on track to win, but I have to be realistic this weekend given how late everything has come together and the main target has to be three solid races so I can make the most of our time on track and learn as much as possible about the car.

“While I enjoyed my time racing in Ginettas in both the Challenge and then the Supercup, I have always had a desire to race in single-seaters and now the opportunity has come along, I can’t wait to get started.”
