Kevin Mills Racing has signed 2016 Scottish FF1600 champion Neil Maclennan for this year’s Avon Tyres BRSCC National FF1600 season.
The Scot, who raced partial National seasons for Cliff Dempsey Racing between 2017 and 2018, partners countryman Michael Macpherson at the team.
Maclennan got his first taste of the KMR Spectrum at last season’s Festival and joined new team-mate Macpherson at last season’s final Champion of Brands meeting, with Maclennan claiming a pair of second places behind then team-mate Michael Eastwell.
It was this performance, along with Maclennan’s previous National form, which prompted KMR to approach the Aberdeenshire driver.
“After finishing fifth in the 2018 FFord Festival, and two runner [up] spots in the end of year Champion of Brands races with KMR, it was a priority for us to secure Neil for an attack on winning the 2019 National Championship,” the team said in a Facebook statement.
Maclennan claimed five wins in his maiden National season in 2017 before missing the start of last year due to budget concerns. He made a comeback at his home circuit Knockhill, recording a win and another two podium finishes.
A further victory next time out at Brands Hatch followed before Maclennan opted to sit out the remainder of the season, returning to finish fifth with KMR at the Festival.
