A little over two years ago Brent Dillard was capturing everyone’s attention on the UIM F2 World Championship circuits and now he’s back.
The American driver said
I am extremely excited and grateful for the opportunity to compete at a World Championship level again. The British based JRM Racing is a first-class team, and I am thankful to Jamey Stallard, Mette Bjerknaes, and all at JRM for welcoming me and my sponsor Dillard Financial Solutions as we have un-finished business to attend to at the UIM F2 World Championship.
During his break from competing overseas the 35-year-old driver from South Carolina has turned a corner in his driving style and attitude to win. This was demonstrated late last year in winning the NGKF1 Series race at Lake Havasu as well as finishing second in the APBA Formula 200 National Championship. This year Dillard will be competing in a brand new 2022 Moore boat completing the two-boat line up alongside Bjerknaes.
We are delighted to have Dillard join the team. JRM Racing grows stronger every year and I’m thrilled to welcome new, resourceful people to it. I am also pleased that he shares my confidence in Moore Formula and that we can present an all-Moore line up in the coming season. With the strong World Championship calendar, I am confident this will be a fun year for JRM Racing.
Everyone at JRM Racing welcomes Dillard to their team, as they know he is of a winning pedigree and with the backing of his parents, who play a huge role in Dillard Racing we should be seeing some good results this season for the team.
With the start of season just over two months away the team will begin testing later this month in the UK. Their plans calendar permitting would be to compete the full season in the UIM F2 World Championship along with some rounds of the CPA British Formula GP and Sprint Championships.
JRM Team Principal Jamey Stallard added
We would love to see both boats competing on the fabulous UK waters helping support the already growing fleet of Formula GP boats, and we are hoping that Bjerknaes gets the opportunity to defend her CPA British Sprint Championship title in August. I appreciate that currently people’s attention are elsewhere and of course our thoughts and prayers go out to all the people affected by the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Ukraine.
