With the 2014 Hurricane Midget Championship on his resume, Jamie Bound looks to become the first OSCAAR Midget Champion in 2015.
Like many of us in racing Jamie first got the racing bug at the early age of 12 years old. Jamie cut his teeth racing go karts and feel in love with open wheel racing. Jamie could also be found in the shop helping his Dad and brother as they competed with the TQ Midget series. When most kids where out enjoying the summer, Jamie could be found in the shop working side by side with his grandfather.
When it became time for Jamie to elevate his racing career, The Hurricane midgets where the series of choice. The 2012 and 2013 season found the familiar # 83 participating on a part time basis. The learning curve of the car and finding the proper set up for the paved ovals put the team in position to make a run at the championship in 2014.
The hard work and determination paid off for when the final checker flag waved at Autumn Colours the 30 year old was crowned series champion. The season saw some great highs and lows as the team suffered through a hard crash, but thanks to a team loaning them their car they were able to maintain their points lead.
Since first coming to the series, Jamie has seen a huge growth in teams and competition each and every week. And like every racer he states the cars continue to get faster and who doesn’t like speed!
With the 2015 season and the Midgets now being part of the OSCAAR series, Jamie is looking forward to an exciting season and preparations are well under way to become an OSCAAR Champion in 2015.
Jamie will have his 2015 OSCAAR Midget on display at the upcoming Motorama Car Show on March 13-15 so please make plans to stop by and pick up your 2015 schedule.
OSCAAR would like to wish Jamie and his team the best of luck for the 2015 season
