Toning up for Phillip Island

Currently placed second in the Burson Auto Parts Rookie standings, Zayd Tones is eager to go one better and seek success in the next round at Phillip Island.

The opening round in Tasmania was a new experience for all competitors, but Phillip Island is familiar territory to even the championship’s rookies – with plenty of testing kilometres being logged.

“I loved my first experience of Formula 4 in Tasmania and can’t wait to race again,” Tones said.

“I was a little nervous but I was really happy with my results. I am really looking forward to being back in the car and racing.”

With an eight week gap between Symmons Plains and Phillip Island, the Team BRM rookie has remained race ready with some competitive driving and even driver coaching.

“I’ve been keeping myself busy by going to the gym and working on my fitness,” Tones said.

“I have been driving my MX5 at some events, playing basketball and hanging out with friends.

“I have also been helping out my sponsors with driving tips and kart setup with their Lowrange Motorsports, Alientech and Simply Cool kart teams.”

Although, there’s one corner at Phillip Island that Tones – like many of his colleagues – is looking forward to the most.

“Definitely turn one,” Tones said.

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