West Australian karter Aaron Love has been confirmed to compete in the first three rounds of the 2017 CAMS Jayco Australian Formula 4 Championship with Team BRM.
Aaron, 15, is the younger brother of Jordan Love, who most recently finished third overall in the Australian Formula 4 Championship with the South Australian squad.
Aaron will be partnered with CAMS Foundation Rising Stars Simon Fallon, Cameron Shields and Zane Morse at the dual-Sandown and Barbagallo rounds.
“I’m very keen to take the next step and progress to open-wheel racing, after spending the last eight years racing in karts,” Love said.
“So far we’re committing to three rounds, but hopefully with some extra support from sponsors we can raise more funds to keep racing throughout the year.”
Team BRM Principal Mark Rundle said Aaron’s arrival is an opportunity for Aaron to eye off a full-time graduation to circuit racing.
“It’s great for Aaron to continue Jordan’s legacy here at Team BRM, and knowing Jordan’s talents from last year we certainly know Aaron’s a more than capable driver,” Rundle said.
“Aaron did a two-day test with us at Mallala recently. He adapted to the F4 very quickly. Sandown and Barbagallo will be a fantastic opportunity for Aaron to race the fastest young drivers in Australia. He will surprise a few!”
Jordan was recently announced as the recipient of the Porsche Australia Jamey Blaikie Scholarship and will step into the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Australia.
The first two rounds of the 2017 CAMS Jayco Australian Formula 4 Championship will take place at Sandown Raceway for the season opening of the Shannons Nationals on April 7–9.
