Jonck joins SWR for BRDC F4 attack
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.”
