Malvern ready to get season back on track

�Barkingside racer Scott Malvern is looking forward to getting his season back on track at Oulton Park in Cheshire over the Easter weekend.

Malvern started the season with a win in round one of the Dunlop MSA Formula Ford Championship of Great Britain at Silverstone on April 9 and 10, and looked set to repeat the feat in rounds two and three before being forced to retire after clashing with Australian rival Geoff Uhrhane, but he’s not dwelling on what might have been.

“I know I had a good car and could have won all three rounds, but I don’t expect my rivals to make it easy for me,” he said.

“I also know that returning to this championship after coming so close to winning it last year, that I am the driver that everyone wants to beat.

“But it’s a long season and I’ve been here before and my experience will give me the strength of character that I need to prevail.”

Malvern has also secured the backing of local company Johal Regan for his 2011 campaign.

“I’m delighted that Johal Regan has decided to partner with me this season,” said the Barkingside racer.

Deep Johal, a director of the Wanstead-based Chartered Surveyors and Property Consultants, said: “Scott is an exceptional young talent and we are pleased he will be carrying our name on his car.”

Malvern will have a qualifying session and a race on Saturday followed by two more races on Bank Holiday Monday, with all his events being televised by Channel Four and satellite and cable channel Motors TV.
