MOTORSPORT: Walkinshaw team eyeing maiden win of campaign

6:00am Tuesday 13th May 2014

The Chipping Norton-based Sean Walkinshaw Racing team are targeting their first win of the season when the BRDC Formula 4 campaign resumes at Brands Hatch this weekend.

They secured a superb podium finish in the second race of the year at Silver-stone through Danish teenager Nicolas Beer.

The rookie goes into next weekend’s event seventh in the driver standings.

Teammate Jordan Albert has secured a hat-trick of 13th place finishes and has the promise to be a consistent top-ten runner at Brands Hatch as he strives to move up from his current position of 14th in the championship.

Venezuela’s Diego Borrelli, who is embarking on his first season in single-seaters with SWR this year, raced strongly on his UK debut and posted a best finish of 14th place.

“Next weekend should be good, we’re all feeling very positive after such a strong start in the first three rounds at Silverstone”, said team owner Sean Walkin-shaw.

“Nicolas did a fantastic job on his debut and displayed superb pace.

“Jordan and Diego have less experience, but at Silverstone they were quick and have potential to break into the top ten next weekend.”
