Following a positive end to 2015, Tom Grundy will remain with JamSport Racing this year as he returns for a second season in the Renault UK Clio Cup.
The Dubai-based racer showed great strides in the closing stages of his maiden campaign, having broken into the top ten in the middle of the year.
Grundy battled at the front of the pack in the final two meetings of the season at Silverstone and Brands Hatch, completing the campaign with a seasons best sixth place.
“Last year was a huge learning curve for both JamSport and I,” said Grundy.
“But we built a great relationship together and made big strides every time out – at Silverstone and Brands Hatch we were right up there towards the front fighting with the more experienced names.”
The 18 year old will benefit from working alongside championship stalwart Ant Whorton-Eales this season, with the 2015 title contender having confirmed his move to the team last month.
The JamSport team also recently announced a partnership with British Touring Car Championship outfit Team HARD, which sees them share technical and engineering resources.
“JamSport is also in the middle of its own very exciting expansion plans and with Ant coming on board as well I am totally convinced this is the place to be for 2016,” added Grundy.
JamSport Team Principal Jamie Going commented: “Tom was one of the most exciting names to watch on the UK Clio Cup grid in 2015 so we are naturally very happy to see him return for 2016.
“He has massive potential and could be the ‘one to watch’ this coming season. Certainly in Tom and Ant we have already got a terrific pair of team-mates in place even before we announce the rest of our driver line-up.”
