CONGRATULATIONS MAX CHILTON!
Everyone at the BRSCC would like to congratulate former member Max Chilton on signing for the Marussia F1 Team for the 2013 season, and we wish him the very best of luck.
Max becomes the first graduate of the BRSCC’s T-Cars Championship to make it all the way to Formula 1. Max raced in T-Cars, a championship for 14 to 16 year olds, in both 2005 and 2006. In his second season, aged 15, he just missed out on the title by three points to Luciano Bacheta.
Max was the reserve driver for the Marussia F1 Team for the last six races of the 2012 season and impressed when he drove the car at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in October. Max becomes the fourth British driver on next season’s F1 grid, joining Jenson Button, Louis Hamilton and Paul di Resta.
