Ojeda to climb championship ladder

Fifth in the overall standings, AGI Sport’s Jayden Ojeda is seeking to vault up the standings at a circuit he’s familiar with – Phillip Island.

Though Ojeda had set competitive times throughout the weekend and raced towards the front, an electrical drama in the second race at Symmons Plains prevented Ojeda from collecting a solid haul of points.

Redemption did come in the final race, where the New South Welshman scored his first podium result with third place.

“After the technical issue in race two, to have a good race and a good battle with Aaron Love was very rewarding,” Ojeda said.

Despite being kept busy with extra-curricular activities, not much compares to seat time aboard his AGI Sport Formula 4.

“11 and a half out of ten,” Ojeda rated his boredom between rounds.

“Uni, work and training keeps me going non-stop though.

Ojeda is one of a handful of drivers to have already raced at Phillip Island, which he hopes to put his experience to good use.

“Coming from Tasmania, which was a relatively small track, I’m looking forward to slipstreaming at Phillip Island,” Ojeda said.

“Also finally getting to turning right.

“Setting a good lap around The Island is one of the most rewarding experiences. There’s so many things that can go wrong, so when it all goes right it’s an amazing feeling.

Round Two of the CAMS Australian Formula 4 Championship commences on Friday 1 June at Phillip Island, as part of the Shannons Nationals weekend.
