Samuel Oram-Jones selected by the McLaren MTA Performance Academy
25 February 2013

Double leap for Samuel Oram-Jones this year: debut in the KF category with team PSR, with his first race at the Winter Cup in Lonato, plus a step towards the auto world thanks to the selection by the McLaren MTA Performance Academy.

In 2013 Samuel Oram-Jones did immediately well at his debut in KF at the Winter Cup with team Piers Sexton Racing: twice 4th in the heats, on the rebound, and two best laps over the weekend. Seen the great karting results, the English driver has also been selected by the brand new McLaren Applied Technologies (MAT) Performance Academy, which already saw him involved in the first step of the program with a driving course at the McLaren Technology Centre, home of the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes Formula 1 team. Guiding him through the tests were F1 World Champions Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button. The development program foresees another practical session and constant observation by McLaren throughout 2013 with monthly evaluation reports. Next date on track for Samuel and team PSR at La Conca, for round 1 of the WSK Euro Series, this coming weekend.
