DRIVER NEWS: Jamie Caroline and Pirtek Racing aim to impress at Oulton Park

Supplied by driver’s PR

1 JUNE, 2016 – Pirtek Racing’s young star Jamie Caroline will hope that history repeats itself this weekend when he heads to Oulton Park for the latest rounds of the F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford.

The teenager makes the journey to the stunning Cheshire circuit on the back of another impressive weekend on track at Thruxton last month, where he stormed to a second podium finish of the season at the wheel of his Jamun Racing-run car.

His results in Hampshire last time out leave Jamie seventh in the title race going into this weekend’s meeting at a circuit that has happy memories for the 17-year-old, having been the scene of a stunning double win in last season’s Ginetta Junior Championship.

Those two wins would prove to be the catalyst for his eventual championship success; kick-starting a run of five successive wins and an astonishing ten victories in the following 14 races.

A similar front-running performance this weekend would provide Jamie with the opportunity to bring himself firmly into contention for top honours in this season’s highly-competitive F4 series, which has featured six different winners already in 2016.

With hopes high that the impressive speed he has shown thus far can be translated into further success on track, Jamie will hope to become the seventh different winner as he bids to make his move up the championship standings.

“Oulton Park was the place where my championship really started last year with the double win, and hopefully it will be the same this time around,” he said. “It’s a really ‘old school’ circuit where there is no room for error, and the smallest mistake can really cost you.

“Although it was tough to end the weekend at Thruxton with a DNF, the fact I was back on the podium was great and I’m hopeful that I can at least repeat that this weekend. Qualifying will be important as Oulton Park can be a difficult circuit to pass on, although I’ve shown so far this season that I’m not afraid to make a move when I need to and am capable of making up places in the races.

“Given how much I love Oulton Park, I’m really looking forward to this weekend and can’t wait for the action to begin.”

After qualifying on Saturday 4 June at 09.30, the first of three F4 British Championship races will be at 14.45 later that day, with race two at 12.57 and race three at 17.40 on Sunday. Sunday’s races will feature in ITV4’s extensive BTCC coverage, with live timing and results from the weekend being available at www.tsl-timing.com.

Oulton Park to play host to single-seater racing at its very best with British F4

30 MAY, 2016 – The F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford proved that junior single-seater racing is alive and kicking, with heart-stopping wheel-to-wheel action at Thruxton one month ago. Motorsport’s brightest young talents had everyone talking and they are sure to do the same at Oulton Park this weekend.

JHR’s Sennan Fielding emerged from the high-octane Thruxton thriller with the championship lead. Oulton Park was the scene of his maiden victory in the series in 2015 and he’ll be wanting more of the same to put daylight between himself and a host of title challengers.

The closest of which is Red Bull Junior driver Luis Leeds. The Aussie broke his victory duck last time out and is riding a wave of confidence. Another in a bullish mood is Double R’s Zane Goddard who helped the team record its best result of the season at Thruxton.

Max Fewtrell is aiming for a more straightforward weekend after two DNFs; grabbing the headlines for his aerial acrobatics following a collision with team-mate James Pull. The latter knocking on the door of his first win of 2016. Carlin comrades Petru Florescu and Devlin DeFrancesco are sure to be in formidable form, each having taken a race victory at Thruxton in emphatic fashion.

Like fellow Ginetta Junior graduate Billy Monger, Jamie Caroline is eager to stand on the top step. Both have captured the imagination with heroic drives through the field and entertaining podiums.

A series of top ten finishes for JTR’s Patrik Matthiesen have seen him consistently add to his points tally and he will hope to build on this. Whilst Jack Butel will look to feature on the podium having shown flashes of front running place, belying his current position in the standings.

Alex Quinn will lead Fortec Motorsports’ assault. The Rookie Class frontrunner keen to unleash more of the devastating pace he showed at Donington Park where he claimed his maiden pole position and victory. Team-mates Frank Bird, Nicolai Kjaergaard and Ross Martin are all determined to strike back from a relatively difficult Thruxton weekend.

Quinn’s fiercest challenge may well come from Ayrton Simmons. The series’ youngest driver got his single-seater career off to a flyer with a rookie podium and victory one month ago. Don’t discount Jack Martin who also has a Rookie Class win to his name, or TRS Arden team-mate Rafael Martins who intends to kick-start his title quest.

A blockbuster week for the Ford EcoBoost-powered championship kicks off with two full days of testing at the legendary Croft circuit on Tuesday and Wednesday this week. The teams and drivers then head to Oulton Park where battle will recommence with further testing on Friday. Official qualifying gets underway on Saturday morning and round 10 of the championship in the afternoon. Two further 20-minute races follow on Sunday, with the final British F4 race of the weekend scheduled for transmission during the ever-popular live BTCC show on ITV4.
