MACAW Motorsport welcome Ian Williamson to the team…

Big news here at MACAW Motorsport as we welcome experienced driver and podium finisher from Brands Hatch – Ian Williamson to the MACAW Motorsport team as our 4th driver…

Ian Williamson comes from a karting background and can still be found often competing in endurance karting events like the Le-Mans 24hrs Kart Race amongst other big events. Ian entered circuit racing in 2016 with his Citroen Saxo VTR in the Stock Hatch Championship, finishing a fantastic 5th place overall in his first season of racing. He went on to compete in Class C of the Hot Hatch Championship in 2017 but could only manage to attend 3 of the rounds. The start of the 2018 Season saw Ian work closely with the MACAW team and with the help of Mark Freeman added various upgrades to the car and managed to resolve handling issues which had plagued the car during the 2017 season. With the new found balance in the car and fresh determination he did fantastically well at the opening round of the 2018 season at Brands Hatch, finishing both races in strong 3rd place finishes.

Unfortunately after Brands Hatch Ian swapped engines in an attempt to further improve the car, however the change did not go to plan and at the 2nd round at Croft he suffered major engine problems which resulted in a DNF for Race 1 and could not make the start of Race 2. Due to the problems with the engine Ian missed the following 2 rounds at Pembrey and Cadwell, but still attended to help out the MACAW Motorsport boys with what he could, showing true MACAW Spirit.

Ian’s car was finally ready and fixed for the Silverstone International rounds of the championship and having just joined the MACAW Motorsport team he was hoping to impress and had his fingers crossed for some better luck…

Keep posted in the Race Reports Section to find out how Ian got on… 

A Huge WELCOME to Ian and we are looking forwards to the future drivers success…
