It has been announced that the International Junior Grand Prix Championship have allowed two further late season entries, with Point Cook Racing and British Engineering joining the grid. They become the second and third teams to join after the start of the season after Arqiva Westwood Youth Racing, who have experienced some exceptional results since their arrival.
In a statement at the Monaco base for the series, promotor Robert Mathershaw said: 'I am pleased to announce this news of two new teams, as it shows the popularity of the series has extended further than the interests of the F1FVGPC teams, with some lineups now seeing this series as a viable option to be their sole operation.
Point Cook Racing are an outstanding outfit, and their facilities are top notch, I have been to look at them and I have no worries about their potential ahead.
British Engineering are similar in their quality, with good facilities and knowhow, and overall I think they will do well in this championship.
I would like to wish them the best of luck, and as Westwood proved, the cars we have mean it is possible to win right out of the box, so the expectancy will be high right from the start!'
The Grand Prix Juvenile de Monaco, the showpiece event of the calendar will take place this evening.
