Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Dan­ish driver Jan Jonck will join Sean Walkin­shaw Rac­ing for this year’s BRDC For­mula 4 Cham­pi­onship.

The 17-year-old grad­u­ates to UK sin­gle-seaters hav­ing raced in the Ger­man-based ADAC For­mula 4 class last year. Jonck, from Skod­strup, is a for­mer Dan­ish kart­ing cham­pion and also fin­ished run­ner-up in the 2014 Dan­ish For­mula Ford Cham­pi­onship. He joins South African Eu­gene Denyssen, 19, at the team.

“The BRDC F4 car is re­ally fast with great aero­dy­nam­ics and amaz­ing power from the Cos­worth en­gine. It’s a joy to drive,” said Jonck. “I think this is a great step­ping stone and learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence for me, and I’m sure I will be com­pet­i­tive. But the learn­ing curve is big so for now it’s heads down so we can make as much progress be­fore the first round as we can.”
