Alex MacDowall re-signs with Bamboo

Alex MacDowall has re-signed with bamboo-engineering for a second consecutive season in the FIA World Touring Car Championship.

The partnership between the 22-year old Englishman and the Silverstone-based outfit will continue, following last year’s successful campaign in the WTCC that was worth the 11th position in the Drivers’ Championship and the fifth, with two race victories, in the Yokohama Trophy.

MacDowall will team with his fellow countryman James Nash at the wheel of the bamboo-engineering Chevrolet Cruze 1.6T cars.

“It’s fantastic to stay with the team and in a Chevrolet. We had a great first season together and I think we did a really good job. My confidence started to build during the second half of the season, and with all of that experience I’m certain we’ll be able to fight for the Yokohama Trophy this year,” said MacDowall.

Richard Coleman, Chief Executive bamboo-engineering commented: “We are delighted to keep Alex again this year and to build on his strong experience from 2012. Alex had an especially strong second half to the season and this, twinned with the signing of James Nash, not only gives us a great driver line up but a real chance to challenge for a title.”
