After a self-imposed sabbatical, local rising motorsports star Ross Jamison is ready to resume his career behind the wheel. The 16-year-old was to compete in the China Formula Renault Championship this spring but because of financial constraints, he decided to shift back a gear and focus on school.

But in between classes, he did manage to enter two karting races. One was in Macau, which he won comfortably, and the other was at Shah Alam in Malaysia, in which he came third. Well, his GCSE exams at King George V School are over, so it's time to get back in the driver's seat. Jamison hopes to return to either the Asian Formula Renault or Formula BMW Asia Series next year. He just needs raise about HK$1.7 million. 'I hope to eventually be able to represent Hong Kong in Formula One,' Jamison said. If you want your company's name on a racing car, here's your chance.
