Walero founder Fiona James has announced that she will race in the 2016 Superlights Challenge with Blueberry Racing.
Driving a Praga R1, Fiona is no stranger to the championship having successfully contested selected rounds of Supercar Challenge since 2009 in GTB & Supersports classes so knows the team and series well.
The founder of Walero Base Layers has been racing in different disciplines since 2007, but this will be her biggest challenge to date. The Praga R1 is a lightweight full-carbon track car designed around a composite monocoque, inspired by endurance prototypes.
The six-round championship will commence in Zolder on the 16-17th April.
“I am delighted that I will compete with Blueberry Racing in the Superlights Challenge. It is a great opportunity. I will be racing a car that I think is brilliant, and I cannot wait to be driving something that’s ‘back to basics’ with no traction control or gadgets. I am looking forward to driving with Blueberry Racing and meeting all my new teammates. The Superlights Challenge is going from strength to strength, so it is a great championship to be competing in.”
