Randle and Goddard Claim Front Row

TRAVISTY driver Thomas Randle has claimed pole position in this morning’s Qualifying for the final round of the CAMS Jayco Australian Formula 4 Championship on the streets of Sydney Olympic Park.

The 19-year-old posted the fastest time of 1:33.4107 and held first place throughout the entirety of the session.

Rookie racer Zane Goddard backed-up his solid qualifying performance from Phillip Island, qualifying on the front row for Race 2.

Preston Hire’s Luis Leeds was third, with the 15-year-old jumping to the second row of the grid later in the session.

Victorian Tom Grech was fourth, ahead of the current Australian Formula 4 Champion Jordan Lloyd who was fifth.

The champion was unable to showcase his full potential, pitting in the final stages of the session and was unable to go back out with Qualifying ending under red flag.

Team BRM’s Frankie Maiolo was as fastest as third at one point of the session, but it all ended after hitting the tyre bundles, causing the only red flag for the session and coming home with sixth.

Will Brown from Toowoomba was seventh, ahead of Famous Insurance’s Nick Rowe, Harry Hayek and Jimmy Vernon.

Jayco Dealer Team’s Caitlin Wood finished outside the top ten with 11th, ahead of debutant Nick Fillipetto rounding out the field.

The CAMS Jayco Australian Formula 4 Championship will hit the Homebush circuit for Race 1 at 13:05 (AEDT).

All the racing will be live on Fox Sports 5, including live Twitter updates at @Formula4au
