Jenson made his debut in circuit racing this year in the 2023 BRSCC Fiesta Junior Championship in a MK6 Fiesta ST. At just 14 years of age, he started the season as the youngest driver on the grid. He quickly showed that he has a natural talent and ability with a fifth in class at round one at Snetterton. Followed by two trips to the podium, with a third in class at Knockhill and a third in class at Brands Hatch. And a very impressive P2 overall in qualifying at Silverstone, and fastest lap in class at Donnington.
2023 saw the largest EVER grids for the Fiesta Junior Championship so it made it even more impressive to see Jenson finish fifth in class and ninth overall in the 2023 championship in his debut season.
Jenson was offered a fantastic opportunity with the Wera Tools Alliance Racing Academy, to become one of their junior drivers for 2023. Without such an opportunity, the leap into the highly competitive world of motor racing would have very much been a pipedream. From humble beginnings, Jenson has always been a privateer with dad and grandad in the awning and mum and uncle helping behind the scenes.
An impressive debut season for the young driver from Cambridgeshire. He has proved he will be one to watch in 2024.
Jenson Mason: “This year has been amazing. I have learnt so much and have loved every second of it. I have developed my driving skills throughout the season, and I am very proud of our achievements this year, especially as privateers”.
“I’ve had the best year and have made some lifelong friends. I can’t wait to get back out there and see what we can achieve in 2024!”
“I cannot thank Alliance Racing & Pete Osborne and Wera Tools & Tool Maniac enough for their support this year. Without all these guys, and my amazing family, I wouldn’t be where I am today, and I will always be grateful for that. Not many kids get the opportunity to do what I do, and I feel very lucky to be one of them”.
