Burntwood racer James Tucker enjoyed a solid weekend at Rockingham in the MSA Formula Ford Championship.

The event marked James’ first race in the French-made Mygale chassis, after his sponsors felt it was best for him to change teams and learn about different racing designs.

Both races saw James himself fighting with second year driver Josh Hill, son of former Formula One world champion Damon Hill.

James said:

“The weekend was not an easy, with only one test in this chassis before hand, putting me on the back foot entering the race. However with my sponsors and I looking ahead to next year and using this one as a learning year, it was a great meeting, as I learned more about the car and how it needs to be driven.”
