18/09/12 - The BRDC Formula 4 Championship has received its
first car order just hours after applications were opened. Charlie
Robertson has been confirmed as the first driver to sign up to
MSV's groundbreaking new junior single seater series, which
commences in 2013.
The Scottish-born 15 year old, who lives in Whyteleafe, Surrey,
is currently leading the Ginetta Junior championship for HHC
Motorsport, with six wins and nine podiums so far this season. This
year marks his second campaign in the sports car series having
finished as runner-up in 2011. Prior to this he came second in the
KF3 Formula Kart Stars with a further three years in karts. Charlie
is planning to build on his successful two year relationship with
the Yorkshire HHC team, which is excited about expanding into
Charlie Robertson enthused: "BRDC F4 is the perfect next step
for me after two seasons in Ginetta Juniors. With 175bhp,
adjustable wings and paddle-shift gears, the F4-013 looks
fantastic. The championship looks great too - with relatively low
costs, three races each weekend and reverse grids to spice things
up. I can't wait!"
Jonathan Palmer, Chief Executive of series organisers MSV, said:
"Charlie Robertson is the perfect calibre of driver to kick off our
2013 BRDC F4 grid - young, talented, successful and ambitious. I
have followed Charlie's progress closely in Ginetta Juniors and
have been very impressed - he is not only a very quick driver but
intelligent and analytical too. The BRDC F4 Championship is the
perfect step for Charlie and although new to single seaters I
expect him to be running in the top six in his first season."
Orders for the new BRDC Formula 4 car, designated the MSVF4-013,
are being accepted from Monday 17 September. Deliveries will be
made on a first come first served basis and will commence at the
end of January 2013.
