On 11 September, Scott Jeffs announced in his Facebook page that he will be competing in the Elite 1 class for Braxx Racing in the upcoming American Fan Fest Semi Finals at Hockenheim next week.
“I’m hella excited to announce I’ll be back racing in the Nascar Whelen Euro Series for the semi finals at Hockenheimring!” said Jeffs in the announcement.
“However, not only will I be returning to the series, I’ll be racing in Elite 1! I know this is going to be a challenge but if I throw myself in the deep end, I’m sure I’ll come out the other side a better driver being able to learn from the best! I will continue to drive the #90 Braxx Racing Camaro. A massive thanks to my family for all the support and getting me to these races!”
Jeffs will be replacing his Elite 1 partner Alex Sedgwick in Braxx Racing’s No. 90 team for Hockenheim. Sedgwick had confirmed to us last month that he’s not going to compete at Hockenheim due to funding issues and is currently planning to return for the season finale round at Zolder with the sponsorship program that he currently offers.
Jeffs had previously raced in the first three race weeks of the 2019 season for Braxx Racing in the Elite 2 class. He achieved a best finish of 5th place in the second race at Brands Hatch and could’ve achieved better had he didn’t receive a 30-second time penalty in the first race at Brands Hatch for forcing Vittorio Ghirelli off the gravel, a penalty that ultimately costed Jeffs of his first podium finish in the Euro Series.
Jeffs will become the second driver that is scheduled to make his Elite 1 debut at Hockenheim after Guillaume Deflandre was announced to be making his Elite 1 debut for Dexwet-DF1 Racing in the No. 66 team on July.
