Dubbo teenager Tyler Everingham has signed with the Junior Racing Development squad for the 2016 CAMS Jayco Australian Formula 4 Championship.
After completing a successful test last week in Wodonga, the fifteen-year-old has committed to the series as part of a two-year deal with JRD who also make their debut as a team in the championship.
Everingham recently took part in the Rotax Pro Tour in Junior Max and is looking forward to racing with drivers he previously encountered in karting.
“I can’t wait to get into testing and the championship,” Everingham said.
“This is the start of a two-year program for me in Formula 4 so I will use 2016 to learn the car and circuits in preparation for 2017.”
Everingham is now the youngest Australian Formula 4 driver, eclipsing Luis Leeds as the youngest Australian Formula 4 driver, with multiple state karting titles to his name including the 2015 NSW Junior Clubman title.
“Naturally I would like to take home the Burson Rookie of the Year prize, but I have no real expectations other than learning as much as I can,” Everingham said.
