Irish Teenager Dáire Flock is set to compete in his first ever season of car racing in the Junior Saloon Car Championship (JSCC). The JSCC is the starting point for any young driver’s circuit career, its age range is limited to 14–17 year olds. Racing on the UK’s most famous circuits such as Silverstone and Brands Hatch, Dáire will be fighting against 29 other teenage stars battling it out for the overall championship. Also, up for grabs this year for Daire is the Rookie Cup for drivers who are in their first season in the JSCC. There will be plenty of action for Dáire with 10 rounds in the season calendar, which includes four triple header meetings totalling twenty-four races, a record breaker for the JSCC. Speaking to young Dáire, Newsgroup had a chance to get his thoughts on the season ahead “I am very excited to be racing for Westbound and to be racing in the JSCC this year, pre-season testing has gone well, and I am looking forward to the season ahead.”
Daire will be running under the Westbourne Motorsport team, statistically the most successful JSCC team there is and this is what team boss Ben Colburn had to say “We are really pleased to have Dáire onboard with us for this year. Pre-season testing has gone really well so far for Dáire, and I am very impressed with his quick progress and willingness to learn. I am confident by the end of the season we can get Dáire fighting up the sharp end in only his first year and especially go for that Rookie Cup”.
