Connor Mills looks set to return to the Dunlop MSA Formula Ford Championship of Great Britain next season with Meridian Motorsport, who could possibly to expand to a three-car team for 2014.
Meridian’s Paul Abercrombie confirmed at this week’s Formula Ford Sampler Day that the Essex-based outfit will run at least two cars in the single-seater championship, with Mills the first driver announced.
The team joined the championship part-way through 2013 with Arden Young Driver protégé Mills, taking a best finish of sixth in the final race of the year at Brands Hatch.
“We have secured the Mygale chassis which won the championship this year in the hands of Dan Cammish,” said Abercrombie. “We have signed two drivers who are 100 per cent committed, and we are in negotiation with a third. Connor will be with us again for next year and we are very excited for the future of Formula Ford.”
“Formula Ford is absolutely where I want to be next season,” added 16 year old Mills. “It looks as though I will have a couple of team-mates also, which would be a very positive step.”
