Cliff Dempsey Racing has announced that James Raven from Portsmouth will drive for the team in a works supported Ray GR 13/14 in the BRSCC Avon Tyres Formula Ford 1600 National Championship in 2014.
18 year-old James will drive the car that Peter Dempsey tested with great success just before Christmas at Kirkistown, Northern Ireland and by the start of the season it will have even more updates as Gavin Ray has some more development parts ready.
Commenting on the news, team boss Cliff Dempsey said, "I am delighted that James has joined our team. I watched him in 2013 and I rate him very highly as a driver. We will do our very best to be competitive from the start of the season. It will be a tough season as always in FF1600 but we look forward to challenging for the title once again”.
James started his racing career in karts when he was 8 and moved into cars in 2012. Last season James was a regular top five finisher in the Northern Post 89 Formula Ford Championship and took a race win at Oulton Park in August.
