Jessica Hawkins is set to compete in the MSA Formula championship next season as part of the new #RacingforHeroes team.
The Hampshire-based racer is one of five drivers who will be competing on the BTCC package next season under the #RacingforHeroes banner, competing in support of the Help for Heroes charity.
Hawkins made her car racing debut twelve months ago in the Michelin Clio Cup Series, before making her single-seater bow this season in Formula Ford GB.
Joining the grid at Silverstone with MBM Motorsport, Hawkins settled in well to post a trio of top eleven finishes and she is now ready to further her career in the FIA-backed MSA Formula series next year.
“It’s such a great opportunity, to do what I love, and for such a fantastic cause. When I was asked if I’d like to help I said immediately that it would be more than amazing,” said Hawkins, who recently visited Help for Heroes’ Tedworth House recovery centre.
“The work that they do there with injured soldiers has to be seen to be believed; the opportunities being offered there are just incredible and so well worth supporting.”
“I’m really still a novice and I have a lot to learn, but my aim is to win and I’ll be trying my best. If you are not going to try to win then you’re not really a racing driver. I want to do the best I can not just for myself but to raise awareness for Help for Heroes.”
