Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

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.
