Foster said: “I am really looking forward to competing in the Ginetta Junior Championship this weekend. In the run up I have been busy getting fit, which included in a charity bike ride with my school Lord Wandsworth Collage riding from Cemaes in Anglesey back to my school in Long Sutton.I have also been testing with the team at various racing circuits and getting some driving simulator experience with IZONE at Silverstone.

“It has been a steep learning curve and I appreciate that it is a hugely competitive championship but I can’t wait to be part of it. I would like to thank my school LWC, team Elite Motorsport and my mum and dad for all the support to date.”
