Philip Pegler Racing is pleased to announce James Selby as driver of the No. 88 KPX Racing Tony Kart from 2015.
Selby, who is currently tied for the championship lead following his second season of racing at Monterey Bay Karters in Marina, has been selected by Kart Project X as the recipient of its Young Driver Award, which includes a fully-sponsored drive in the 2015 KPX Karting Championship. He will also drive the No. 88 Tony Kart in the 2015 MBK Karting Championship.
“I am so happy to offer this opportunity to James. I have heard so many positive things about him from many credible sources and I believe that he is a most deserving recipient of the KPX Young Driver Award. His performance yesterday afternoon in the season finale at Marina was outstanding and he drove three very intelligent races, each with vastly differing circumstances.
“It has been my goal for several years to find a young talent who matches the KPX philosophy and I believe that person is James. I also hope that this will be the first of many opportunities given to young drivers through Kart Project X and I look forward to adding more drivers in the coming years.
“I would like to say that none of this would be possible without the support of the many selfless people in our sport who are clearly driven by a passion for motor racing and an unconditional love for the wider karting community. It is because of them that we are able to go racing and do what we love to do.
