Formula 4 Goes To Oulton Park Before Series Hits Mid Season

1 Mins read

One of Britain’s newest and fastest single seater championships is making its trip North this weekend as Formula 4 storms Oulton Park before the championship hits mid season.

Rounds 10,11 and 12 mark the end of the first half of the inaugural Formula 4 season which has so far seen seven drivers grace the top step of the podium – only Matt Bell and Jake Dalton have broken the curse of only one victory with each of them scoring a double.

However, neither of these men lead the championship, that falls to HHC Motorsport’s Charlie Robertson whose lead stands at solitary three points. With 30 points available for a race win and three races being held over the weekend, the chasing pack can be argued to consist of the top eight of nine drivers with ninth place man Matthew Graham on 110 points only 54 points behind leader Robertson.

More immediate in the chasing pack are: Jake Dalton, Seb Morris and Jake Hughes in second, third and fourth respectively with Hughes only 23 points behind meaning Oulton Park could be pivotal in the Formula 4 championship.

Championship leader Robertson said:¬†“Oulton Park is a great track and I’m really looking forward to racing the F4 car there for the first time.

“It’ll be my race debut on the full circuit, we only raced on the Island layout in Ginetta Juniors, but I’m confident we’ll be able to hit the ground running and have three strong races there.”

Last time out at Snetterton Formula 4 had three maiden winners including fourth in the championship Jake Hughes, the championship leaders will be hoping that can keep up the pressure and not allow anyone else pull themselves up into an attacking position.

The action at Oulton takes place on Saturday only with supporting action from the various Radical championships – featuring olympic gold medalist Sir Chris Hoy, hoping to make an improvement on a pair of fifth places gained at Brands Hatch.
