AFTER A GREAT weekend at the Leinster Trophy in his first ever outing in a Formula Sheane, Seán Doyle has been presented with an opportunity he cannot refuse.
The young Wicklow driver will get the opportunity to race at the world famous Brands Hatch Indy circuit in the Formula Ford festival at the end of October.
The festival celebrates its 40th anniversary in 2012 and the list of winners reads like a who's who of motorsport, with current F1 stars Jenson Button and Mark Webber included in its illustrious roll-call, along with past Formula 1 greats such as Johnny Herbert, Eddie Irvine and Anthony Davidson.
Seán will get his first taste of Formula Ford in Mondello Park this weekend in preparation for his visit to Brands Hatch at the end of the month.
'I can't wait to get out in the car, it's such a great opportunity and I hope to make the most of it while it's there. The car is owned by none other than Morgan Dempsey Jnr who himself has had some fantastic Formula Ford results over the years, and Dan Daly has agreed to share his vast experience and help us to run the car. It will be great to race in a class in which many drivers have gone on to such great success'
