Exclusive Autosport signs Canadian karting standout Jeffrey Kingsley to F1600 program
April 28, 2014 (Saskatoon, SK): Exclusive Autosport proudly announced today that they have signed 15 year old Canadian karting sensation Jeffrey Kingsley to their 2014 Formula 1600 program. Kingsley will be behind the wheel of the #92 Exclusive Autosport / Spectrum / Sparco / Exclusive Management Inc. / Honda Racing HPD formula 1600 for the duration of the 2014 season.
Kingsley, a grade 10 student at Trinity College School in Port Hope, Ontario will compete full time in the Ontario based Toyo Tires F1600 Championship. The team also has him slated to run the Canadian Formula 1600 Super Series and the Toyo Tires Formula Tour 1600 Championship (based out of Quebec).
2014 will mark Kingsley’s rookie year in Formula 1600 competition. He is making the transition from karts to cars and brings with him a wealth of karting experience. Kingsley started karting at the tender age of 9. His karting resume is full of numerous karting championships including a Rotax Mini Max Eastern Canadian Karting Championship (2011), Rotax Mini Max Canadian Karting Championship (2011); Canadian Rotax Junior Driver of the Year (2012 and 2013). He was a double heat winner at the Rotax Max Grand Finals in Rotax Junior in 2013.
Earlier in 2014, Kingsley went to Sebring International Raceway with the Exclusive Autosport team to attend the SCCA Majors event in January where he captured back-to-back second place finishes. He also travelled to Road Atlanta for the opening round of the F1600 Formula F Championship. He captured a top ten finish there.
Without a doubt, Kingsley is one of Canada’s brightest rising stars. Although too young to drive any type of car on the street, Kingsley is solid behind the wheel of his Spectrum 014 race car. The team is expecting a solid performance (this year) out of their young driver.
« It is a real pleasure to sign with Exclusive Autosport for the 2014 season! To be apart of their double championship winning team means a lot. I believe that I can make great progress and be a contender for the championship this year. I can tell after my two race weekends with the team that the team works really hard with their drivers to give them all the tools they need to succeed. I am looking forward to learning in that kind of environment. With a hard working team behind my back I can see successful races turning into a successful championship!” said Jeffrey Kingsley.
“We are thrilled to sign Jeffrey Kinglsey to our 2014 Spectrum F1600 program. Jeffrey is an accomplished driver with a high attention to detail. He is a very quick learner and easily adapts to every situation thrown his way. We have no doubt that he will be a contender at the front of the field every weekend,” said Exclusive Autosport team owner Michael Duncalfe.
Kingsley, along with the entire Exclusive Autosport team and crew did not participate in the annual CASC-OR Spring Fling this past weekend. They took the weekend off to prepare mentally and physically for the opening rounds of the Toyo Tires F1600 Championship series at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park May 2-5.
