- F4 British Championship newcomer underlines faith in Richardson Racing’s preparation as he predicts a silverware-laden campaign.
- Browning among those to have tested consistently over the winter months and placed fifth on cumulative times at the series’ recent Media Day.
- New season of Ford’s winning formula commences at Brands Hatch over the weekend of 6th-7th
Luke Browning believes the level of Richardson Racing’s preparation should put him in podium contention as he gears up for the new F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost season.
The Ginetta graduate has been among those testing most consistently over the winter months and ranked fifth on cumulative lap times at the series’ recent Media Day at Brands Hatch, a mere 0.287 seconds adrift of pace-setter Josh Skelton.
With strength in depth across the grid in Britain’s FIA-sanctioned Formula 4 category in 2019, his work will be cut out, but Browning made no effort to hide his title aspirations.
“I believe we’ve put in the preparation over the winter to win races and challenge for podiums at every event,” asserted Browning.
“The passion from my family, supporters and the team is second to none.
“I believe Richardson Racing have not only the potential to do it but have the right people in place to get the job done. It’s no secret that we will be going for the title this year.”
He also shed some light on his transition from the Ginetta G40 across into the Ford EcoBoost-powered British F4 car, once again praising Richardson for their role in speeding up his development.
“The car is simply awesome; slicks and wings is always going to be a challenge to get to grips with so fast, but I couldn’t ask for a better team around me to speed up this process.
“I pinch myself every day that I’m here. It’s a fantastic championship to be in and has long been a dream of mine. I’m feeling confident, strong and ready for the season – I can’t wait!”
Once again in 2019, the F4 British Championship occupies a unique position as the sole single-seater support category on the UK’s premier motorsport package – the British Touring Car Championship.
That in itself guarantees a capacity trackside audience exceeding 30,000 spectators at most events alongside live, free-to-air television coverage nationwide on ITV4.
Browning will now look to hit the ground running when Ford’s winning formula returns to action at the 1.19-mile Kent circuit over the weekend of 6th-7th April.
