Third in this year’s CAMS PAYCE Australian Formula 4 Championship, Team BRM’s Aaron Love looks likely to follow in his brother’s footsteps and embark on a career racing Porsche machinery.
Jordan Love, who also finished third in the 2016 Australian Formula 4 Championship, has since climbed up the Porsche ladder to become a Porsche Junior, the 2017 GT3 Cup Challenge series winner, and a race winner in Porsche Carrera Cup Australia.
The brothers last month shared a first-generation Porsche 991 Cup Car at Phillip Island’s Island Magic event, claiming a pole position and race win in the process.

“What an awesome weekend,” Aaron Love said.
“I learnt so much over the course of four days.”
It’s a precursor to Aaron’s reward for the season, where he will sample a 2018-spec Carrera Cup Porsche prepared by Volante Rosso alongside championship runner-up Ryan Suhle.
“It’s going to be great fun to have the test day in the Porsche with Volante Rosso,” Love said.
“So that will definitely be an eye opener and we will learn a lot from that I am sure.”
2018 was a coming of age for Aaron, stepping up as one of Team BRM’s senior drivers after his prior rookie season. A race win at Winton was a highlight for Aaron, particularly after suffering a major shunt at a test day prior to the double-round.
“It was a bit of a bitter-sweet ending to the year, we really wanted to get up there on the top step of the championship but ended up taking third. Still, we are absolutely stoked to get that,” Love said.
“Over the past couple of years, I’ve had a lot of fun and learnt a lot of things. Especially on track and off track, and about myself with driving styles and all that.
“I’ve also made a ton of new friends from last and this year, from Jackson Walls to Liam Lawson, so it’s been really fun.”
