NICK LOWE and rookie AARON LOVE are the two West Aussies to line up in this weekend’s opening of the CAMS Jayco Australian Formula 4 Championship at Melbourne’s Sandown Raceway.
It’s the first time two rounds are held across the one weekend – with three 30 minute races today and a further three for Round Two tomorrow.
Armed with ex-German Formula 4 engineer Timmi Ungar, AGI Sport and Nick Rowe claimed the season opening pole award by a staggeringly close 0.0257 seconds ahead of Kiwi debutant Liam Lawson.
“We had a good run in the first [qualifying], ” Nick said. ‘Then just couldn’t get the lap and didn’t quite have the setup in the second one. Don’t know what happened but these things happen, that’s alright. A pole in the first one, rain on Sunday; we’ll see how we go, should be good fun.
“It did change a lot for that second qualifying. I had so much understeer, I was just piling it into lock everywhere,” Nick said. “But that’s alright, we’ve got Timmi here, he’ll sort it out.”
Team BRM rookie Aaron Love, younger brother of last year’s third placed getter Jordan Love, qualified ninth for today and eighth for tomorro
Round One’s three races today start from 7:10am Perth time, with Race Two at 9:35, and the final at 12:30pm. Tomorrow’s race starts are 7.10am, 11.50am and 1.40pm.
