Another Young Gun Enters the Arena
WEST AUSTRALIAN karter AARON LOVE will race the first three rounds of the 2017 CAMS Jayco Australian Formula 4 Championship with Team BRM.
AARON is the younger brother of Perth’s JORDAN LOVE, who most recently finished third overall in the Australian Formula 4 Championship with the South Australian squad.
AARON partners CAMS Foundation Rising Stars Simon Fallon, Cameron Shields and Zane Morse at the dual-Sandown and Barbagallo rounds.
Eight Years in Karts Leads to F4 Gig
“I’m very keen to take the next step and progress to open-wheel racing, after spending the last eight years racing in karts”, the 15-year-old said. “So far we’re committing to three rounds but hopefully, with some extra support from sponsors, we can raise more funds to keep racing throughout the year.”
Team BRM Principal Mark Rundle said Aaron‘s arrival was an opportunity for the young hopeful to eye off a full-time graduation to circuit racing.
“It’s great for Aaron to continue Jordan’s legacy here at Team BRM, and knowing Jordan’s talents from last year we certainly know Aaron’s a more than capable driver,” Rundle said.
“Aaron did a two-day test with us at Mallala recently. He adapted to the F4 very quickly. Sandown and Barbagallo are fantastic opportunities for him to race the fastest young drivers in Australia. He will surprise a few!”
