BRDC FORMULA FORD CHAMPIONSHIP

JORDAN Albert and Diego Borrelli’s best performances of the season were the highlight of a tough weekend for Chipping Norton’s SW Racing at Brands Hatch.

Britain’s Albert finished sixth and Venezuelan Borrelli seventh in the final race of the meeting, but Nicolas Beer had to return home to Denmark for family reasons following round five.

Beer lost an 11th place result in that race after being handed a penalty.

“It’s been a tough weekend, but all three guys did a good job overall and it was fantastic to see Diego and Jordan come through so well to take their best finishes yet,” said SWR team owner Sean Walkinshaw.

“Race three showed if they can qualify well, they both have the pace to run with the leaders.

“We’re taking a lot of positives forward to the next round after those performances.”
