Onboard footage from a jet lagged Niall Murray Racing going from P16 to P1 last time out in Kirkistown Circuit where he claimed the Northern Ireland Formula Ford FF1600 title for 2017. Murray was traveling back on a seven hour flight from the USA, arriving at Dublin airport that morning. He had just been in a USF2000 race in Watkins Glenn, just outside New York city.
The win has booked a place for the Dublin racing driver for another Road To Indy USA scholarship for the second consecutive year. This is a program to develop world class young drivers from around the globe, where the prize is a paid drive in the USF2000 championship. The winner from this championship gets further funding which can see him or her progress to Indycar.
We will be following Niall’s progress throughout the scholarship and wish him the best of success.
