West Australian Aaron Love has confirmed he will compete in his second season of Australian Formula 4 with Team BRM.
Making his debut in the 2017 CAMS Jayco Australian Formula 4 Championship, Love was the third-best placed rookie driver in the championship last season.
“I learned so much throughout the year,” Love said.
“I had an awesome time, as well having great battles and a lot of off track banter. Even learning has been really fun because it’s a whole new ball game going from karts to cars.”
In what will be his second consecutive season in Australian Formula 4, Love will adjust his mindset from being a learning rookie to becoming an experienced campaigner.
“Yeah it is quite weird. It was only the other day, us as the team, we were talking about it and having a good laugh about how we still feel like I’m a rookie driver,” Love said.
“But I’m sure I might be able to step up my game, become a senior driver, and lead some of the rookies along.”
Team BRM Principal Mark Rundle is confident with Love’s potential to step up as the South Australian squad’s senior driver.
“Aaron enjoyed a strong finish in 2017 and we hope that momentum will keep building throughout his second year with us,” Rundle said.
Aaron is the brother of reigning Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge series champion Jordan Love, who finished third in Australian Formula 4 with Team BRM in 2016.
“Hopefully I can step up and maybe be a little bit better, so I’ll have a few bragging rights over him back at home,” Love said.
“But for him, he has had a good run in Formula 4 and Porsche. So, hoping that I can set up my game and even try and equal him because he has been a really good driver.”
The 2018 CAMS Jayco Australian Formula 4 Championship will return to Tasmania for the first time since 2016, with the season opener to take place at Symmons Plains on April 6 – 8.
