Jordan Mazzaroli signs with Junior Racing Development

Junior Racing Development has signed New South Wales teenager Jordan Mazzaroli for the 2017 CAMS Jayco Australian Formula 4 Championship.

The team, which made its Australian Formula 4 debut with Tyler Everingham in 2016, has tested Mazzarolli on multiple occasions throughout 2016.

The signing comes off the back of a successful test at Winton Raceway in late November where Jordan completed a full day’s running.

“Jordan impressed with his feedback, speed and ability to adapt to changes giving us great hope for the season ahead,” JRD Team Principal Brett MacLennan said.

With support from Real Equity Estate Agents, Mazzaroli expressed his delight in putting together a Formula 4 program for 2017; with his sights set on an international motor racing career.

“I really enjoyed the rookie test I did [in November] and becoming familiar with the F4,” Mazzaroli said.

“I’ve always dreamed of making it to Formula 1 and this is the second step on the ladder towards that goal for me after karting, so I am rapt we have been able to put a program together.”

Mazzaroli has a busy year ahead by combining his Formula 4 duties, his Year 10 studies and also continuing his karting where he is stepping up to seniors in TAG 125 Light.

“The [Australian Formula 4] championship has a number of guys who raced last year and they have driven at all the circuits before, but I will use every minute of seat time to learn what I can to ensure I make the most of this opportunity,” Mazzaroli said.

“I am really excited about getting back in the car for pre-season testing and am doing all I can out of the car to make sure I am physically prepared for Round One.”

Mazzaroli joins recent signings which include AGI Sport’s Harley Haber and Sage Murdoch, and Team BRM’s Simon Fallon and Tyler Everingham – with further driver announcements to come in the new year.

Rounds One and Two of the 2017 CAMS Jayco Australian Formula 4 Championship will take place on April 7–9 at Sandown Raceway for the season opener at the Shannons Nationals.
