Anderson Replaces Rosso For Brands Opener

1 Mins read

Autosport Magazine’s Ben Anderson will replace injured Argentine Juan Angel Rosso at Jamun Racing for the opening rounds of the Dunlop MSA Formula Ford Championship of Great Britain this weekend at Brands Hatch.

Rosso, a former race-winner in the Argentinian Formula Renault Plus championship, picked up the injury during a testing accident at Brands Hatch a couple of weeks ago. Anderson replaces him with limited experience in the car, having tested it once at Brands back in February.

Anderson announced the news on Twitter saying: Just been told I’ll be racing in British Formula Ford at Brands Hatch this weekend. Thanks to @FormulaFordGB and @JamunRacing for the chance,” before later adding: “Juan Rosso has broken his hand so I’m subbing for him.

The majority of Anderson’s racing experience comes in Formula Vee, having completed two full seasons and two part seasons in the category, his best result being second in the 2010 championship. Anderson will compete once again in the championship this year, with the first rounds at Donington Park being cancelled recently due to the wintery conditions.

Anderson will join Rosso’s compatriot Nicolas Maranzana and 2011 Formula Ford champion Scott Malvern in Jamun’s line-up at the opening rounds.
