Cadet Champion York joins Strawberry Racing


Strawberry Racing boss Paul Spencer believes Dean MacDonald will help steer Oliver York to success in this season’s British MiniMax class after the reigning MSA British Cadet champion joined the team. York, 12, switched to the Coles Racing outfit for a MiniMax assault this season alongside European competition in Junior Max. His plans changed though when extra financial backers steered York towards the Strawberry team. MacDonald, the 2012 MSA British Cadet champion also recently joined Strawberry, before claiming the Trent Valley Kart Club Winter Series title in the MiniMax class. “Dean has incredible pace and for the pair to team up will be perfect for Oliver,” Spencer said. “Dean is a level above in everything he does and I can see them both egging each other on. When we get two strong drivers such as this, it’s good for both as they’ll feed off each other. Both have the capability to take the top two positions in MiniMax this season, who takes the top spot is up to them.” York’s dad Garry said: “Strawberry is the main British factory outfit for TonyKart which is a major draw but Dean’s year of MiniMax experience will help Oliver. Oliver’s mechanic Roddy Taylor gets the best out of Oliver and has huge motivation to win.”
