- Ginetta graduate adds to Arden Motorsport’s ranks for 2020 F4 British Championship campaign.
- Bilinski partners Frederick Lubin at the Red Arrows; the rest of the Banbury outfit’s line-up will be unveiled in due course.
- Arden F4 boss Gary Ward delighted at acquisition, looking ahead to another strong season.
Roman Bilinski will graduate into the F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost for 2020 after agreeing a deal to join Arden Motorsport.
The 15-year old from Lechlade is the latest rising star to move into single-seaters from the highly-competitive Ginetta Junior Championship, taking an overall podium and a further five top-ten finishes from the opening seven rounds in 2019.
Prior to that, Bilinski’s karting highlights include winning the Rissington Honda Cadet Championship, as well as being awarded the Nigel Mansell ‘Most Promising Award’.
Arden have wasted no time in cementing their 2020 plans, with Bilinski set to join the previously-announced Frederick Lubin as the Banbury-based outfit begin winter preparations. The rest of the team’s line-up will be unveiled in due course.
“I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to race with Arden Motorsport in 2020 British F4 season,” said Bilinski.
“I have a very strong team behind me that share the same goal for success, so we will be sure to give it our best throughout the season.”
Arden’s F4 Team Manager Gary Ward also underlined his delight at Bilinski signing on the dotted line and is looking ahead to another silverware-laden season for his team.
“I’m absolutely delighted Roman has chosen Arden Motorsport as he steps up into the F4 British Championship for 2020,” added Ward.
“We’ve watched his progression through the Ginetta ranks for a while now and have been very impressed – I’m really looking forward to working together next season.”
In stepping up to Ford’s winning formula, Bilinski will benefit from the F4 British Championship’s unique role as the only single-seater support category on the UK’s premier motorsport package – the British Touring Car Championship.
Labelled the biggest stage in Britain, it offers capacity trackside crowds exceeding some 30,000 spectators and live, free-to-air UK television coverage on ITV4.
The opening round of the 2020 season takes place at Donington Park, Leicestershire, over the weekend of 28-29 March.
