Jason Pribyl Autosports is excited to announce that in 2024, Jason will build on last year’s F1600 and SRF3 success by racing Formula Fords with PWR1 (Phill Wills Racing) and the support of Ray Race Cars in United Formula Ford series.
United Formula Ford is a race series based in the United Kingdom, founded by MotorSport Vision Racing (MSVR) and James Beckett Motorsport. This year’s series will consist of eight events, each with two races. “I’ve heard about Jason from teams that worked with him in the States. He’s a great driver on and off the track and I’m happy to have him on board for the 2024 season”, said Wills. Jason will be driving the factory backed Ray F1600. Owner of Ray Race Cars Gavin Ray said, “When Phill told me Jason was coming to race for him I knew Jason would need a car that was on par with his abilities”. Additionally, he is tentatively planning on running the prestigious Formula Ford Festival and Walter Hays Trophy races to cap the season.
