Karting star Casper Stevenson joins Richardson Racing
Richardson Racing is delighted to announce that it has agreed a deal with rookie racer Casper Stevenson for the 2019 Michelin Ginetta Junior Championship season.
Casper becomes the latest driver to have agreed terms with the Corby-based team and will benefit from becoming part of the team’s ever-expanding junior driver development programme.
Like a number of aspiring stars of the future, London-based Casper launched his racing career in karting and spent the 2018 season racing in Super One Junior X30.
Eager to take his career to the next level, Casper becomes the latest young star to select the highly-competitive one-make Ginetta Junior series for his first season of car racing and will hope to challenge for rookie honours with the race-winning Richardson Racing squad.
Casper has already had chance to sample the Ginetta G40 Junior he will race in 2019 during testing at Donington Park and Brands Hatch and will now continue with a full testing programme before the season gets underway at Brands Hatch in early April.
Casper Stevenson said:
“I’m really looking forward to racing in the Ginetta Junior Championship this season, and am pleased to have signed a deal with the Richardson Racing team.
“Throughout last season they were ultra competitive on track, and that was shown with a multitude of wins and podiums throughout the year.
“I can’t wait to get the season underway, and I hope that we can emulate the success the team had last year over the course of 2019.”
Gwyn Richardson, team principal, said:
“I’m so pleased to have Casper on board. He impressed us from the moment he first started working in our simulator. He showed remarkable passion and dedication to analysis of data and on-board footage and that has translated into tremendous performance in testing. He’ll definitely strengthen an already strong line-up of drivers.
“I’m looking forward to seeing this pace continue into the season, where I’m sure his professionalism will translate into good results.”
