RACER David Vivian is intent on securing this year’s Castle Combe Formula Ford 1600 Class B championship and catch the eye of sponsors in his bid to move up a class next season.

The 32-year-old is preparing for this weekend’s BRSCC meeting and goes into the event with a comfortable lead in the Class B championship having claimed victory and fastest lap in all four rounds.

Vivian, from Bradford on Avon, also sits fourth in the overall standings following some impressive performances, which earned him the driver of the day award at the last round in May.

“It’s frustrating, I would love to be in a Class A car and I believe I could win the championship outright,” said Vivian, who has returned to racing this season after a four-year break.

“I need to try and not have any DNFs, the problem I had was I always tried going for the outright win which might cause accidents.

“I want to settle down in Class B and see how I get on overall.

“As far as I know there is a drive in Class A for me next season, I just need to get the funds together.”

This weekend’s racing will take place on both Saturday and Sunday, with the Formula Ford 1600 race taking place at 12.35pm on Saturday.
