Automotive group Hendy had renewed its support of one of the UK’s leading young drivers and will once again have its name on the car of 18-year-old James Hedley.

The youngster from Dorset is bidding to become a Formula One driver and this year steps up into the highly competitive GB3 Championship.

James was previously Ginetta Junior Champion and has been racing in the F4 British Championship, showing his potential with a number of race wins.

This year he is back in the Elite Motorsport team which saw him take Ginetta Junior victory.

Hendy chief executive Paul Hendy said he was delighted that Hendy would continue to support James as he takes another step up the racing ladder.

“James is becoming an extremely mature and accomplished driver and early season testing has seen him quickly get to grips with the new GB3 car and post some of the fastest times,” said Paul.

“James lives in the heart of the community in which Hendy operates and we will be following him every step of the way this season.

“GB3 is a great stepping stone to Formula One and we hope that James will be the next British driver to take his place on the Grand Prix grid.”

James said the continued support of Hendy is a real boost to his campaign.

“Hendy has been a tremendous supporter of my driving in the last few years and I’m proud to showcase the Hendy brand on my car both at home and abroad for races,” he said.

“This kind of support means I can really focus on my driving and I’m now looking forward to getting back behind the wheel when the season starts.”
