HARRY DYSON MAKES SWITCH TO BRITISH F4 WITH JHR AND BMR ACADEMY
BMR Racing are delighted to announce that race winning young gun Harry Dyson has become the latest signing for the BMR Academy in association with JHR Developments.  It will see him progress up to the F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost, following his recent success in the Ginetta Junior Championship earlier this year.

Right from the outset Harry celebrated success with JHR Developments as a Ginetta Junior rookie in the 2017 championship taking his first win at the opening round at Brands Hatch earlier this year and his success continued throughout the season.

Harry who celebrates his 15th Birthday this week is very excited to make the step up to the F4 British Championship for the remainder of the 2017 season.  Harry will remain with front running single seater squad JHR Developments who have supported him fully this year and he will continue to run with them for the 2018 British F4 season.

Speaking of his signing an excited Harry commented: “I am looking forward switching to the F4 British Championship for the last two meetings of the season.  It’s been a difficult year but I feel very lucky to be Joining the BMR Academy as the next step in my development.  Being part of the BMR Academy and continuing with JHR Developments means I embark upon this next chapter with the best support which will give me a chance to race at the front.”

The BMR Academy is the stepping stone system created by BMR Racing to assist drivers in the progression through to the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship.  Past drivers who have experienced this support include BMR Racing BTCC drivers Ash Sutton and Josh Price who both progressed from the Renault UK Clio Cup Championship.  Harry follows in the single-seater footsteps of Ash, who took the 2014 Formula Ford Rookie title and a host of victories in the series which evolved into the F4 British Championship.

Harry has been receiving extensive driver coaching from Ash and will continue to do so with the addition of another British F4 Graduate in the form of Billy Monger, who will be heavily involved in telemetry and data analysis.

Speaking of the new partnership JHR Developments Team Manager, Jules Phillips, commented: “Harry proved himself in the Ginetta Junior championship earlier this year and we recently gave him the opportunity to test the British F4 car alongside JHR’s Manuel Sulaimán.  It’s fair to say he outperformed all our expectations.  Harry has made the decision to switch to the F4 British Championship for the remainder of the season and it’s a great chance for him to get up to speed ahead of a championship challenge next year.”

Team Principal Warren Scott commented: “I am delighted to welcome Harry on board.  He has already demonstrated what he is capable of this year and I am very pleased that with the partnership of JHR Developments we can give him his step up to the F4 British Championship.  I am confident that the BMR Academy will give him the ideal platform to learn and we all look forward to supporting him in his future development.”

Harry’s debut in the Ford EcoBoost-powered series will be at Silverstone this coming weekend the 16th and 17th September for rounds 25-27.
