Team BRM have today confirmed they will run a four-car team in 2016, with the addition of last year’s championship runner Jordan Love and South Australian karter Josh Denton.
The Adelaide-based team have come off the bat from a successful test day at Phillip Island with Love and Denton.
Perth-based Love has returned to Australia after racing over in Asia during the off-season, and the 16-year-old is wanting to come back in strong form for his 2016 campaign.
“Obviously it’s great to be here, great team and I’m feeling really comfortable in the car at the moment and with the team,” Love said.
“New circuit in Tasmania in a couple of days, it sort of puts everyone on an even playing field as no-one has been there before, it should be good fun and I’ve heard the racing is very close on that track.
“For the first round really I can’t expect too much, I’m thinking at this moment if I can do a top five result I’d be really happy with that, but obviously we are looking for that top step and I will be doing everything I can to improve that.
“Expectations for the rest of the year is that I want to be on top and I will do everything I can to do that, and top three at the end of the year is the goal at the moment.”
Denton tested the Formula 4 car for the second time at Phillip Island, and the 16-year-old says he is extremely excited for the opening round next weekend at Symmons Plains.
“BRM are fantastic to work with and they are helping me incredibly,” Denton said.
“I went out for the first session, focusing on getting used to the car my driving techniques, my lines, braking pressure and throttle application.”
Both drivers will venture to the Symmons Plains circuit this weekend for Round 1 of the CAMS Jayco Australian Formula 4 Championship, with a full entry list to be confirmed shortly.
