Formula Ford GB race winner Juan Rosso will continue in the series this year with the Jamun Racing team.

The Argentinian claimed a triple victory in the final round of the 2013 season at Brands Hatch – once dominant champion Dan Cammish had left the series – and finished third in the standings.

He finished 46 points behind runner-up Harrison Scott, despite an injury forcing him to miss the opening round (also at Brands Hatch).

Scott announced earlier this month that he would return with the Falcon squad to fight for the title, and 20-year-old Rosso cautiously hopes he can do the same.

“I am trying to get all the experience possible in my short career,” he said. “I have only two years racing and this will be my third. I had a really good year with Jamun in 2013 and this season I want to try to make something stronger, to win more than three races and, if it?s possible, to fight for the championship.

“I am really happy to come back with Jamun; they showed me last year they have a lot of experience and made me feel like part of their family. It was an excellent relationship, and that?s why I want to repay them with more victories and maybe the championship.?

Jamun boss James Mundy said the team was planning on fielding Rosso as part of a two-car team.

“We are pleased to have him back ? we enjoyed having him in the team last year,” said Mundy. “He?s a great lad and he had a good end to last season, so it seems like a good plan to come back and have a crack at the championship.

“We are planning on running two cars, but could run three, and will be testing some possible team-mates for Juan next week.?
