TCR Snap Up Karting Champion Wooder For Ginetta Bow

Dave Wooder has become Total Control Racing’s third driver signing for the 2015 Kick Start Energy Ginetta Junior Championship.

Wooder will make his car-racing debut after a superb 2014 season in which he won the Kartmasters Grand Prix and British Open Junior Rotax karting titles.

The Chatham-based racer also finished as vice-champion in the Super 1 British series and at the World Finals in Valencia.

“I’ve loved my time in karting but the time is right to make the move into cars,” said Wooder, “Ginetta Junior is obviously a good championship, it’s tough and very competitive so it’s a great place to learn.

“It should be a great year and I really am looking forward to it, especially with such a great team behind me.”

The 15 year old joins second year driver Matt Chapman and fellow rookie Cameron Roberts at TCR for the forthcoming campaign.

“We’re over the moon to have Dave in the team alongside Matt and Cameron, it’s a fantastic young line-up,” added TCR boss Lee Brookes.

“The first year in any championship is always a big challenge, especially your first year in cars, but Dave has a fantastic record of success from karting so I’m sure he’ll be on the pace pretty quickly.”
