Carzone Sponsors Kellett Motorsport Ford Fiesta Race Series in 2019

Kellett Motorsport is an Irish race team run by Alastair Kellett and based in Kells Co Meath. They have been preparing race car’s for over 14 years and Alastair himself is a successful race driver who has been working on race cars for over 20 years. In 2019 Kellett Motorsport will race three different generations of Fiesta - ST, Zetec and Fiesta Zetec S.

After finishing the 2018 season in 4th place overall Barry-John McHenry will once again race in the Fiesta ST championship over 5 weekends in both Mondello Park and Bishopscourt. The Raheny ace feels he has a lot of unfinished business ahead and has learned a lot over his last two years in the ST Championship. The ST Championship is regarded as the top saloon car championship in Ireland with over 20 experienced drivers many of which hold titles across Europe with all the top teams entering cars.

William Kellett will race in the Fiesta Zetec championship. William finished 2nd in the championship in 2018 and plans to return to take the overall title. William has been nominated 3 times as Motorsport Ireland young driver of the year and hopes that winning the Fiesta Zetec title will help him in his quest to win this prize in 2019. At only 18 years of age the Kells youngster shows maturity when racing then his age suggests and goes into the season as favourite to take the title.

Alastair Kellett will compete in the Ford Fiesta UK championship. Alastair has previously won this championship in 2016 but spent the next two years concentrating on running cars in both Ireland and the UK while sporadically racing across Europe with many race victories to his name. Alastair is one of Irelands most successful national champions with over 7 different championships to his name as a driver and many more as a team boss. He will combine his season as team boss for both Barry-John and William as well as trying to take the UK Championship as a driver himself.
