BRENTWOOD, England – Former UK Formula Ford champion Scott Malvern is making a dramatic return to the series after signing a deal to drive for the Jamun Racing Team.
Malvern, who clinched the title in 2011, will be one of at least five drivers making a Formula Ford comeback this year in the all-new generation of faster, winged cars.
He’ll race a Mygale chassis powered by the new 200 PS 1.6-litre EcoBoost engine.
“I am really pleased to be racing again and the Ford EcoBoost 200 looks like it’s going to be a really exciting car to drive,” said Malvern.”We’ve worked hard to put something together. It is very a late deal, which means that we haven’t been able to test as most of our rivals have been doing. But we also showed last season that we are more than capable of hitting the ground running and I have the highest confidence in the team to put a good car under me.”
Scott was Dunlop MSA Formula Ford Championship runner-up in 2010 and won the title with Jamun the following season thanks to 18 race wins (13 of them consecutive) from 24 starts.
The opening rounds of the Dunlop MSA Formula Ford Championship of Great Britain are just two weekends away at Brands Hatch (30/31 March), where the series will take up its new slot as a BTCC support event in front of ITV4’s live cameras.
