Richardson Racing are targeting a three-car entry in the Dunlop MSA Formula Ford Championship of Great Britain after a strong debut campaign in the BTCC-supporting series.
The Lincolnshire squad joined the single-seater championship this season with a single car for Andrew Richardson. The former Ginetta GT Supercup race-winner adapted to the Ford well, taking three podium finishes.
The team, run by Andy’s father Gwyn, are currently close to finalising the deal for two new Mygale chassis’, and are in discussions with a number of drivers for the seats.
“We are hoping to run three EcoBoost cars next year and we have four or five very interested drivers, so things are looking positive, although not necessarily for me as a driver,” said Richardson.
“My options are open and I would like to come back to Formula Ford as a driver, but the team comes first and if there is no car for me, then so be it.”
Championship front-runner Sam Brabham, Romanian David Dugaesescu and Australian Justin Johns tested with the team at the recent Formula Ford Sampler Day at Rockingham.
