James Inglis is one of the young guns in the Wormall Civil Sprintcars field who is looking forward to challenging the visiting Americans as part of the USA vs WA Speedweek series which begins at Perth Motorplex on Tuesday.
Despite this being only his second season behind the wheel of a Sprintcar, Inglis has been turning heads with his smooth racing style.
As an accomplished dirt kart racer, Inglis is not fazed by racing against drivers with a lot more experience – including USA drivers Brian Brown and Dominic Scelzi.
“They are in a league of their own really and I think I will learn a lot racing against them,” Inglis said of the Americans.
“Doing a few rounds of World Series Sprintcars at the Perth Motorplex last season helped me a lot and I think it can only be a positive thing.”
The young gun from Maida Vale said stepping into the open Sprintcar category last season was challening.
“It was good fun, we came out of the season pretty well to be honest. Hopefully we can learn more and build on what we have done last year.”
With a knack for avoiding on-track carnage and improving set up knowledge, Inglis hopes some more top ten results will be heading his way.
“As a driver I think I have just got to keep doing what I have been doing, trying to keep out of trouble. The more laps I get in, the more I am going to gain experience and go forward.”
