24-year-old Jack Walker-Tully will return to the VW Racing Cup with Maximum Motorsport after a late deal last Tuesday will allow him to race in the upcoming Rockingham weekend.
Walker-Tully has been a regular in the championship since 2013 and even finished fourth in the 2015 season. While he’s not expecting to be an immediate front-runner, his past experience could be vital in securing further silverware for Maximum later in the season.
“I’m delighted to have a very capable driver in Jack signed to Maximum, he has an impressive proven track record in the championship and I’m certain he’ll be up the front with Tom fighting at the sharp end.” commented team owner Stewart Lines.
“It all came together quite last minute,” started Walker-Tully. “Stewart got in contact with myself and we signed the deal up on Tuesday. I watched all the action from Oulton Park and missed being out there so we made it happen to get out for Rockingham… A podium would be a dream return but I would be happy with a top 5 finish.”
“I haven’t driven the car in almost a year, my last outing being at Spa last season. But we’ve had a good test day back in the car today so I’m confident for my return, just hoping for a bit of rain.” Jack concluded.
He’ll join Cameron Thompson, Tim Docker and last years championship runner-up Tom Witts, who collected a podium at Oulton Park two weeks ago.
