Cameron Motorsports graduate gets deal of a lifetime
HAMILTON, ONTARIO - Cameron Motorsports graduate driver Robert Wickens has just been awarded the contract of a lifetime. The Ontario stand out karter has been announced as a 2006 Red Bull Junior driver.
Wickens will compete in the 2006 Formula BMW USA championship with Team Apex Racing USA, sporting the new BMW Junior Team paint scheme with Red Bull insignias.
Wickens is the first Canadian ever to be awarded a Red Bull Junior contract, and he is thrilled with the opportunity. Since finishing third in the 2005 Formula BMW USA championship, and clinching the 2005 Formula Senior title for Cameron Motorsports in the Sunoco Ron Fellows Karting Championship, Wickens won the FBMW portion of the Race of Champions in France, and finished sixth in a difficult weekend at the FBMW World Finals in Bahrain.
"We are extremely happy for Robert," Cameron Motorsports owner Bob Cameron said. "He had a fantastic year in cars and karts, and all of us here are sure he will do Red Bull proud. Since we started the elite driver program here at Cameron Motorsports, it has always been our goal to help these drivers all we could. Now with Wickens making this move up, it shows our drivers are getting the recognition they deserve."
