Briton Josh Price reckons he can successfully challenge for honours in international Rotax competition this season after being chosen to be part of the ART GP squad’s maiden campaign in the category.
The 15-year-old finished fourth in last season’s Junior class of the Rotax Euro Challenge points with Chris Rogers Motorsport and took the Kartmasters British Grand Prix title in the class. He also competed at the Rotax Grand Finals with Piers Sexton Racing. Price will graduate to Senior Rotax this year and will also contest Super One Senior Max with the Zip Kart outfit.
“I tested on a KF chassis with ART GP at Sarno halfway through last year,” Price said. “We’ve kept in touch since and they’ve followed my results. I tested on the new Rotax chassis at Garda before the Winter Cup and the kart felt good.”
Price has no doubts that despite it being the squad’s first year in the category, he can consistently challenge for honours this season.
“I’m aiming for good results from the outset and a top three finish in the points,” he added. “I’m confident the kart will be good to go quickly. The team is very professional and is always challenging in KF and KZ so I’ve no doubt we’ll do the same in Rotax.”
