Upminster teenager begins Formula Ford season

Upminster youngster Connor Mills is set to reboot his Formula Ford racing career at Brands Hatch this weekend.

The 17-year-old takes part in the opening rounds of the Dunlop MSA Formula Ford Championship in his first full season of car racing and is hoping for strong results.

Mills is no stranger to competition on the track, having taken up schoolboy karting in 2007 and scored a notable series of championship wins in 2012, including the Super One Winter, British Open and London Cup.

Having stepped up to Formula Ford single-seaters in the middle of last season, aged 16, Mills quickly proved himself to be competitive, scoring eight top-10 race finishes from 12 outings.

This season he will once again race a French-built Mygale chassis for the Meridian Motorsport team, with a new teammate against which to compare himself: Bishops Stortford 20-year-old Ashley Sutton.

“I’m really looking forward to it,” said Mills. “Pre-season testing has gone well and I am working well with Ashley. It’ll be great to have a teammate to share information with.”

Among Mills’s rivals are 2013 race winners Harrison Scott (Althorne), Juan Rosso (Argentina) and Jayde Kruger (South Africa), as well as pre-season favourite Sam Brabham (Banbury), the son of Le Mans victor David Brabham and grandson of three-time World Champion Sir Jack.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.
