Richardson Racing confirmed a deal to run rookie Matt Luff in the remaining three rounds of the 2017 Simpson Race Products Ginetta Junior Championship, writes Jacob Ranson.

The 16-year-old from Romford will join the team from this weekend’s seventh meeting of the year at Rockingham – which is just a stones throw from the team’s base in Corby.

The deal will see Richardson Racing expand it’s assault on the Ginetta Junior Championship from one car to two, with Luff joining forces with fellow rookie Luke Browning, much to their delight.

“He has shown good potential on track this season and we’re confident we can help him enjoy a solid end to the year.”
