Young driver Jake Taylor has certainly set himself a challenge for the 2015 British Rallycross season by stepping up to Swift Sport Rallycross Championship.
After a strong start finishing third in his rookie rallycross year in the MSA Junior Championship. having now made the decision to move up to the highly competitive adult Swift Sport class. Jake is under no misapprehension as to the challenge ahead of him.
“The grids will be much larger this year and I’ll be up against drivers with more experience than me, but I am getting better with every race. I’ll hopefully be pushing for some podium finishes this year.
With the support of Wallrock and a car prepared by Graham and his team at Autopoint I have as good a chance as anyone and it will be down to me prove it. I can’t wait to start racing!”
Jake is the first Rallycross driver to gain a place on the prestigious MSA Academy’s AASE course at Loughborough Colllege. The AASE course is aimed at young driving talent across the UK to help develop the drivers of the future.
Through lots of hard work over the closed season Jake has secured the support of title Sponsor Wallrock for the season. Jake will be driving the same car that Graham Rodemark drove to the championship title in 2013 that is prepared by rallycross preparation specialists Autopoint.
Jake may well unsettle a few established names this year. Infact Current British Champion Tristan Ovenden has already said that Jake will be one to watch this season.
The championship gets underway at Croft Circuit in North Yorkshire on 15th March.
