BRENTWOOD, England - Reigning Formula Volkswagen South Africa Champion Jayde Kruger is to join the Dunlop MSA Formula Ford Championship of Great Britain.
The 25-year-old will make his debut at Oulton Park next month and will campaign a Jamun Racing-run EcoBoost Mygale for the remainder of the season.
Kruger comes to the UK with 10 seasons of single-seater experience in his native South Africa; he has won the Formula Volkswagen title three times as well as two Formula Ford championships.
“This is a chance that came up which I couldn’t let pass,” said Jayde, who is backed by South African chemicals conglomerate Investchem. “I have kind of reached my peak in South Africa. What do you do, race the same thing again and again, year after year - and have a lot of fun - or do you try to accomplish something else? I’m looking forward to it; I’ll give it my best shot and see where we go.”
Oulton Park plays host to rounds 10, 11 and 12 of the Dunlop MSA Formula Ford Championship of Great Britain over the weekend of 8/9 June. All nine rounds of the championship held so far have been won by Dan Cammish at the wheel of a JTR-prepared Mygale.
