A grid of 18 cars will front up for the opening round of the Australian Formula Ford Championship at Albert Park next weekend.
Leading the list of likely contenders for the prestigious title will be Minda Motorsport’s Jack LeBrocq and Sonic Motor Racing’s Garry Jacobsen.
LeBrocq, driving the CAMS Rising Star Mygale, finished second in last year’s championship, including four race wins and two round wins. After failing to secure a drive in an international class, LeBrocq stands out as an early favourite.
LeBrocq will be the lead Rising Star driver, teamed with Macauley Jones. CLICK HERE for more on Jones.
Former Commodore Cup racer Scott Andrews was the last driver confirmed on the Formula Ford grid, scoring a last minute deal to drive for the factory Borland team alongside Shae Davies and Ash Quiddington.
The Victorian has had limited Formula Ford miles, but is eyeing a top 10 result.
“I have to thank the guys from Borland for the opportunity,” Andrew said.
“I’m down on seat time, but it would be a great result for everyone to be well inside the top 10 by the end of the weekend.”
Formula Ford first appear for practice and qualifying on Thursday, followed by one race on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
