Maidstone-based Helen Moore has announced that she will campaign a Ford Fiesta Zetec in selected rounds of the 2001 championship with Maxi Jazz Racing and Allied Dunbar.

"The Fiesta Championship is an excellent platform on which to further my career," Moore said. "After competing in the Winter Series last year, I was eager to return for at least a partial season in 2001 so this is a very positive step forward for me. I'm delighted that Allied Dunbar have agreed to support me and I look forward to a successful and fruitful partnership with them."

Moore began racing four years ago, but has completed only a handful of professional races since then due to education commitments and a lack of funding. After three seasons in single seaters, she switched to saloon cars last October and promptly claimed the Ford Credit Winter Fiesta Zetec Women's Championship with ease.

The twenty-year-old will begin her 2001 season at Brands Hatch in July. "Allied Dunbar are pleased to be sponsoring Helen in what we are sure will be an extremely successful race at Brands Hatch," commented Group Manager, Andrew Welsh. "We look forward to seeing her achieve her goal of the Women's Ford Fiesta Zetec Championship trophy."

Although no further outings have yet been confirmed, Moore is hopeful of a strong showing at her 'home' track. "My dad took my to Brands Hatch to watch the races when I was younger so it'll be fantastic to make my season's debut there.

"I'm really looking forward to getting back in the car, but my expectations are realistic - the competition is tough and judging from previous experience, it's an achievement just to get to the end of the race with the car in one piece! Having said that, my aim will be to finish on the podium.

"Maxi Jazz Racing provided me with a very competitive car during the Winter Championship and I'm confident that that will again be the case. They have high hopes for this season and I intend to help them every step of the way."

Team principal, Rae Claydon echoed Moore's expectations and confirmed that they will be challenging for the women's title and top-ten placings in 2001. "We're delighted to have Helen amongst our line-up for the coming season," he said. "She did a great job for us during the Winter Championship, and I'm sure she can carry that momentum into this season.

"We will of course be aiming to secure the women's championship with her, though we'll also be looking for at least a top-ten placing, if not better."
