West Norfolk race ace signs up for championship

East Lexham racing ace Lewis Galer is the first driver to sign up for the 2019 Mini Challenge JCW Championship.

Karter Galer, 15, finished runner-up in the 2017 Ginetta Junior Scholarship, beating stiff competition from 64 other young drivers to secure second spot in a final shootout at Blyton Park.

Now Galer has switched his attentions to minis and will race with the Excler8 squad, having already tested both Cooper Class and JCW machinery.

Galer said: “I went to see a test day at Snetterton and saw a few JCWs running around and instantly fell in love with them.

“It’s an amazing machine to drive and next year will be a big learning curve.

“Most of the tracks will be new to me and it’s a high level to be going in at. I have my eyes on the Rookie Cup title which I feel is a realistic goal.”

British Touring Car Championship race winner Paul O’Neill recently coached Galer at Donington Park and was impressed with what he witnessed.

O’Neill said: “He’s definitely one to watch and I’ll put my neck on the line here and tell you that he’s one of the best kids I’ve ever sat next to.”

The teenager thanks Hadley & Ottaway Removals Ltd, Dereham Plant Hire, McLeod Aggregates for their continued support.
