Walker ready for run.


Donington Park racewinner James Walker heads to France for this weekend's twelfth and 13th rounds of the World Series by Renault looking to maintain his momentum at the home of the French Grand Prix.

Known for its incredibly smooth track surface, Magny-Cours is a combination of fast turns and tight hairpins, where set-up is vital, as Walker found when he tested there earlier in the season.

“The early season test at Magny-Cours went very well for us,” he reports, “It was my first time there and, from what I had heard, I didn't expect to like the track as much as I did. I really enjoy driving there now, especially through the challenging high-speed chicanes, but it's a tough circuit physically, particularly the long first corner where you can really feel the G-forces pulling on your neck.”

After taking his first World Series victory at Donington Park, the Jerseyman is keen to keep the momentum going.

“We've made steady progress throughout the season, so I will be working hard to make sure we are right up there again in France," the Fortec driver says, “I'll have a new team-mate [Esteban Guerrieri], so I hope that he's quick as that really motivates me. We need to get out there and replicate what we did at Donington, but I'm fired up and ready to go!”
