VAULKHARD SET TO JOIN
NASCAR could be set to welcome Harry Vaulkhard for the upcoming 2013 season according to the latest rumours. Harry Vaulkhard is a champion in the British and world touring car championships. He is now flying to the United States in order to test the 900 bhp NASCAR vehicles in the hope of clinching a move to the sport. He has been recently approached by the squad from MacDonald Motorsport. He revealed recently that he got the opportunity from the team just before Christmas. He has said that it is a great news and he cannot wait to start testing cars for MacDonald Motorsport.
Vaulkhard will be hoping that the test goes smooth. His career has been slowed down by a number of factors including financial difficulties. He rose to fame back in 2007 after winning the SEAT Cupra R series title, while later moving to the British touring car Championships. Even though he has remained with the BTCC on a consistent basis, he had to miss the 2011 season as a result of a lack of seat. He recently signed to raise the European NASCAR series, but had to pull out due to several reliability and financial problems. The 27-year-old has made it no secret of the fact that he would like to get into NASCAR racing.
“It was just before Christmas and I got an email from the team offering me the chance to test in the USA. I have to say it was quite a nice pre-Christmas present! MacDonald Motorsports is a top-end team so it was great news. I’m really looking forward to giving it a go. For a while I’ve been looking at NASCAR as where I want to be. I’ve always felt that it would suit the kind of driver that I am and it’s a series I’ve always loved,” said Vaulkhard.
