SWR signs karting ace for BRDC Formula 4
South African karting champion Eugene Denyssen will move to BRDC Formula 4 this year, driving for SWR.
The 19-year-old won the South African Open karting title in 2014, before making selected outings in the country’s Formula Ford class.
He didn’t race in 2015, but previously tested with SWR in 2013 – using the old F4 car.
“This is a very exciting and important step for my career and I can’t wait to work with the guys at SWR in BRDC F4 in 2016,” said Denyssen.
“Although I haven’t raced for a year, we’ve been working hard to put a package together to compete in the UK.
“The test I did with SWR at the end of 2013 went very well, I gelled with the team straight away and we’ve been in contact since, hoping to make this deal happen. I’m not underestimating the size of the challenge, it’s a tough championship and a new car too, but I’m sure we can have a strong year.”
