James Dorlin drives Clio sport as prize for winning JSCC 2014

2014 Junior Saloon Car Champion, James Dorlin was thrilled with his first outing in the Renault Sport Clio 3 race car at the Brands Hatch Indy circuit this week.

The test day, supplied courtesy of multiple race winning team, Westbourne Motorsport was part of Dorlin’s prize after winning the junior series in only his second year of competing.

It was a huge step up from the Junior car with over twice the power from the 2.0 Renault engine and a sequential gearbox to get to grips with.

Weather played it part with a damp track to start, eventually drying before the heavens opened later in the day.

Westbourne’s Ed Pead was driver coach for the day and helped James to get to grips with the new car.

Ed commented “having worked with many junior drivers in our seven year association with the series it’s great to see another fast driver making the step up from the JSCC series. James got to grips with the car really quickly and we were soon lapping very quickly in some tricky conditions, in the dry he was really committed”.

Westbourne’s Team Manager Richard Colburn was on hand to share the day with Dorlin. “James did a cracking job, I was really impressed by his maturity and focus. He listens well and definitely has an abundance of natural talent, he’ll be one to watch next year”.

James Dorlin hopes to compete in a full season of the Michelin Renault Clio Race series next year.

James said “I had been really looking forward to the test and it didn’t disappoint. The Clio was great and once I got to grips with the car felt totally at home, and put in some good times. To compete in the Michelin Clio Cup series next year has to be the natural progression for me having won the JSCC this year. I would like to thank Richard and the team at Westbourne for a great day.”

Westbourne Motorsport have announced today that they will offer the same prize to the 2015 JSCC Champion and shared test days in the Road Series version of the Michelin Clio for second and third in the championship, a prize fund valued at over £3000.

The Junior Saloon Car Series has produced many of the current UK Renault Clio Cup competitors supporting BTCC. This year three of

the top five drivers come from JSCC. It is the leading proving ground for young talent in UK Motorsport.

JSCC Taster Day 2014 Report

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The first JSCC Taster day held at the Tockwith Motorsports venue, was an excellent event. Albeit a little wind at the venue, we were thankful for the weather staying dry.

The Taster day gave new and prospective juniors an opportunity to drive the cars, which competed in the 2014 championship including Ben Mills‘ race winning car.

Howard Hunt provided driving tuition to all new drivers, and helped them get used to driving the cars at speed, whilst negotiating the bends and clutch/gear controls.

Needless to say there were some good examples of drivers, showing great driving potential for the 2015 Junior Saloon Car Championship. So much so, we’re really looking forward to this year’s championship.

Thank you to everyone who helped out on the day including Tockwith Motorsports, for allowing us to use their venue, and 2014 JSCC Competitors – James Dorlin, Ben Mills, Edward Moore and Scott Mitchell for taking people out on track rides.

If you missed this Taster day, and are interested in attending another one prior to the 2015 season starting, please contact Dave Beecroft
