Jordan Lloyd has continued his strong form at Sandown, taking the second win from the weekend in spectacular fashion, defeating championship rival Thomas Randle and rookie Jordan Love during Round 4 of the CAMS Jayco Australian Formula 4 Championship.
The Team BRM driver had a strong start, avoiding the chaos and slicing his way to the front from sixth on the grid.
“I came from sixth and I could see that first and second had a bit of a rough start and there would be a little bit of carnage to come, but I managed to keep my nose clean and pull through for the win,” Lloyd said.
Randle battled with Love during the early stages of the race, and managed to pip second off of the AGI Sport racer.
“The start was pretty interesting, I had cars covering pretty much across the whole track, I wasn’t really sure where to go, so I went on the high line at the last second, then two guys went off and I was in third,” Randle said.
“I was behind Love for a few laps, which allowed Lloyd to break away, and once I got in front of Love, Lloyd and I were trading times, and then he stepped it up a bit later on.
“I’m a bit disappointed with second, I’d rather be up there challenging with Lloyd.”
Love had his personal best Formula 4 result in Race 2, and is looking forward for the final race on Sunday.
“Really happy with the result from Race 2, managed to get a good start and keep it clean and finish third,” Love said.
IQ Option Racing’s Tom Grech drove a solid race, finishing a personal best of fourth, while Harry Hayek rounded out the top five.
Luis Leeds from DREAM Motorsport managed sixth, with Zane Goddard, Jimmy Vernon, Caitlin Wood and Frankie Maiolo rounding out the top ten.
Will Brown was in a strong battle for fifth with Harry Hayek, but his rear wing broke halfway through the pits sending Brown into retirement.
The final race for the weekend will begin tomorrow at 11:05 (AEST).
