Clio Cup race winner Devon Modell has signed with SV Racing for 2014.
Modell finished 12th in the standings in his maiden campaign last year, with a highest finish of 5th, but he did manage a win at the Autumn Cup at Rockingham
The 23-year-old completes SV’s line-up this year, joining KX academy drivers Ash Hand, Alex Morgan and Ant Whorton-Eales.
Despite some disappointing reslts last season, Modell is focused on the positives and keen to turn his fortune around.
“I won a race in the Autumn Cup and before that we were getting nearer and nearer the front in the main championship as the season went on.
Without a car failure at Brands [the final weekend of the 2013 season], we would have had a podium there.”
The return to SV is also something Modell is pleased about, as consistency with one of the best teams on the grid should give him an edge.
“The aim this year is to fight for regular wins and, hopefully, the title.”
“It’s great to be back with the SV Racing guys again, Danny Buxton is a good guy to have around you and the atmosphere is a lot of fun.
Danny Buxton, the SV team principal, is also extremely positive and encouraging of Devon’s potential.
“At the back end of last year Devon really was threatening the top guys in the championship, then he won his first race in the Autumn Cup which was great.
“If he can keep his consistency, he’ll be a real contender this year.”
