SVG has joined forces with Frankie Taylor to run a Citroen Saxo in the 2018 Junior Saloon Car Championship (JSCC). Frankie has been successfully racing carts for the last few seasons and proved himself to be a winner. Having turned 14 in December 2017 he is now eligible for the JSCC, an excellent platform on which to launch his car racing career. Frankie’s aim is to run in the JSCC for a couple of seasons to learn his craft and gain experience. From here with the help of his main sponsor, Metro Deconstruction Ltd, he will progress to the Clio Cup or the Ginetta G40 Cup championship.

SVG has sourced an excellent Saxo on which to build Frankie’s car. SVG will work with Frankie throughout the season, transporting and setting up the car for each circuit and maintaining the car throughout and between events.

SVG Motor Sport attended a test day at Lydden Hill for Charlotte Birch in her new Citroen Saxo VTR. Charlotte is competing in the Junior Saloon Car Championship (JSCC) in 2017. A lot of progress was made during the day with driver coaching from Andy Johnson and support from the SVG Motor Sport team.

Early in the day while the weather was good Charlottes lap times consistently dropped as her confidence grew. The afternoon sessions saw rain and mist along with a drop in temperature and Charlotte demostrated a natural flair for driving in these conditions. Andy reported that Charlotte was a fast learner, quickly getting to grips with braking points and racing lines.

What a fantastic day today. Charlotte Birch was an absolute star right from the off, considering this was her first time in the car and the first time at Lydden Hill. She improved all day long an I can’t wait for the next test session. I’m certain we have a star in the making.

SVG Motorsport is pleased to announce that they will be supporting Charlotte Birch in her Junior Saloon Car Championship 2017 (JSCC) campaign.

The Gatwick-based driver will use the rest of this year for testing and preparation for next season in her Citroen Saxo VTR decorated in SVG Motor Sport livery.

Proud of her new partnership with SVG Motor Sport, the young racer is excited about what the future has to hold and while her short-term ambition is to win the 2017 JSCC title, she plans on following on to the Michelin Ginetta GT5 Challenge series and who knows where it could lead… perhaps British GT! That is her ultimate ambition!

SVG Motorsport Managing Director, Andy Johnson, said “SVG was approached by Charlotte’s dad, Russell, so I took a good look at the Junior Saloon Car Championship (JSCC) and found I liked the series’ individual style and the idea of having young people competing in full blown race cars. I also felt that Charlotte had the fearless determination to succeed. I am really looking forward to seeing how Charlotte performs and grows within the SVG family for the remainder of 2016 and beyond”.

We expect big things from the young racer!
