MSA Formula racer Jess Hawkins has confirmed that she will continue to race in the series until the end of the year after she was able to raise enough through donations from fans.
After missing the start of the season, she was recently able to compete in the last two rounds at Oulton Park and more recently, Croft, where she achieved a personal best of 13th in only her second weekend, beating more experienced MSA drivers such as Colton Herta and Jack Butel.
Her campaign on the ‘Gofundme’ website, gained much attention, with the 20 year old’s sponsors promising to match the money funded by her fans, which now stands at over £3,200.
Hawkins will continue to race for the Falcon Motorsport team alongside team mate, Darius Karbaley, who had a poor time in Croft, having retired from the first and final race of the weekend. Having also not started the second race, Karbaley will be hoping to pick up some points after a weekend where he didn’t collect any.
“So happy and excited to announce that I will be contesting the second half of the MSA Formula season, starting next weekend at Snetterton.” Hawkins is quoted as saying.
“With the main budget secured and a deal signed with Falcon we can now build on the solid progress made in the previous two rounds.”
