Ellery Motorsport is happy to announce the signing of their first rookie for 2014 – Luke King
Luke King enters the 2014 Victorian Formula Ford Championship with the goal of becoming the Rookie of the year. Luke will campaign his family owned Mygale SJ09, originally piloted by Richie Stanaway. EME will run the car in house and provide an extensive driver development program based around the Victorian Formula Ford Championship and the Ontrack Accounts Junior Team.
Luke is the first official driver to enter the Ontrack Accounts Junior Team. With two test days under his belt as part of his pre-season program, he has logged a total of 380km in his Mygale for 2014 so far.
Luke King is no stranger to motorsport, with his father Brad establishing himself as a highly talented engine builder for the Moffat Ford Dealer Team along with a stint at America’s motorsport pinnacle– NASCAR.
Luke Ellery is looking forward to working with another future racing star:
“I am looking forward to working with a driver sharing the same goals and objectives as we do. It’s refreshing to work with a driver who has come from a family where hard work comes naturally. Luke is a self funded guy and that is extremely rare these days. He is a perfect representative for our team and is very well spoken. I look forward to introducing him to our range of program partners and I have full faith in his driving ability. He has no shortage of fear; we will work with his ability and refine his skillset to produce a better driver by the end of the year. It’s going to be a good year for Luke and the Ontrack Accounts Junior Team!”
