This year James Hall and Simon Bradley will be competing in the 2017 Junior Rally Championship for their third consecutive year. After two previous seasons in the championship, Hall is wanting his prior experience to hold him in full stead for this year. James was able to show his consistent pace in many of the rallies in 2016, but mechanical issues robbed the 15 year old of potential podium places. He will be one of the most experienced drivers in the Junior category, which has previously given the drivers a huge advantage.
He quoted: “I’m really looking forward to this year, I’m hoping my 9 years in motorsport should benefit me” He will be using the Hall Motorsport backed Citroen C1, which over the winter has undergone a full re-prep by the team and is ready for some testing in late February. “The team have had many long days in the garage prepping the car to give us the best opportunity for this year. It’s make or break, and I want to give it the best I’ve got.”
The team are also re-designing the graphics on the car with the big reveal expected just before the 1st round on 19th March. The team have already released a teaser of part of the graphics on their Facebook page.
