Crossey Targets Full Renault Campaign In 2014

1 Mins read

Formula Ford 1600 racer Ashley Crossey is hoping for a full-time switch into the Protyre Formula Renault Championship in 2014.

The 20 year old made his category debut in the final rounds of the 2013 season at Silverstone with Core Motorsport, taking a strong pair of top ten finishes including a best of seventh in the live-televised finale.

Crossey has raced in the Castle Combe Formula Ford Championship over the season, impressing with victory in the Carnival event. He also finished tenth in the recent Walter Hayes Trophy, winning the Nations Cup for Team England alongside Scott Malvern and Joey Foster.

“Formula Renault is my main objective for next year because I think it’s the best step,” Crossey told Motorsport News. “It’s the only junior class running a car with a carbon fibre tub and every level you move on to after junior series run carbon cars. I think it’s the most relevant.

“I found a lot of confidence with the Formula Ford over the final few months of the year and my results have started to turn some heads. I’m taking to sponsors so hopefully we can make a move into Formula Renault happen for next season.”
