SWR signs kart­ing ace for BRDC For­mula 4

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

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.”
