Driver Announcement – Britain West Motorsport is thrilled to announce that Sean Johnston, of Toronto, Ontario will be making his return to race for B Class honours in the Toyo Tires F1600 Championship on board the team’s #65 Van Diemen and sponsored by Heritage Lifestyle Home Furnishings of Burlington Ontario.
Johnston made his debut with the team in late 2019 and decided then that he would commit to the entire 2020 season as a rookie. He got up to speed and very comfortable in the new environment quickly, earning two podium finishes along the way.
“I was really impressed with how quickly Sean adapted to open wheel racing and how systematic he is in his approach to learning which definitely helped,” said Team Principal David Clubine. “We also had a lot of fun and he has been a great addition to the team so I am thrilled to have him racing with us again this season,” he added.
The Toyo Tires F1600 Championship gets underway June 5/6 at the Summer Challenge event at Shannonville Motorsport Park.
Additional driver announcements will be made in the coming days.
