Sowery signs up for BRDC F4 with Lanan Racing
Mclaren Autosport BRDC Award finalist Toby Sowery will contest the opening round of the BRDC F4 season with Lanan Racing.
The 19-year-old is still working on a deal to race in GP3 this year but if that doesn’t work out he may do the full season. Sowery completed a partial campaign in MSA Formula last year with MBM and Fortec, having won the MRF Challenge the previous winter. He also won the F3 Cup in 2014 with Lanan.
“It’s just the first round at the moment,” said Sowery. “I am working to try and do GP3 which is my plan A, but I’m doing this to stay sharp. I’ll see how it goes and may do more rounds this year if I can’t get a GP3 deal. Lanan has won the championship before so we will be going for the win.”
Lanan team principal Graham Johnson added: “Toby is a proven frontrunner. We are confident that the car will be very competitive so I am absolutely sure he’ll be straight at the front. Given his experience relative to his age, he will be a valuable asset to the team too. He is going to be difficult to beat.”
The first round of BRDC F4 takes place at Snetterton on March 27/28.
