Jordan Albert will be aiming to maintain his good start to the Duo BRDC Formula 4 Championship at Rockingham this weekend.

The Chipping Norton SWR team will be aiming to continue its winning momentum after claiming its first victory of 2015 last time out at Oulton Park.

Albert delivered a superb performance in the third and final race of the season-opening event in Cheshire to secure a richly deserved maiden win and the result was a huge boost for SWR.

Bouncing back superbly from a tough start to the weekend, 18-year-old Albert more than confirmed his title credentials in round three of the series.

So, at Rockingham, the British racer is determined to use the Oulton success as a springboard to securing more silverware.

Going into rounds four, five and six of the campaign, Albert is eighth in the championship standings and he also heads into the event off the back of a strong showing in officially timed testing at the Corby venue earlier this month.

SWR team owner Sean Walkinshaw said: “Jordan’s win at Oulton was absolutely fantastic.

“He controlled the race perfectly from the start and delivered a very impressive performance.

“The result gave the whole team a big boost and we’re heading to Rockingham with a lot of confidence.

“We know we have the car and the set-up to challenge at the front, and Jordan has shown he has the ability too.”

Team-mate Zubair Hoque, competing in his first full season of BRDC F4 racing this year, similarly carries good form into the second event of the 2015 championship and was only 0.3 seconds shy of his team-mate at the Rockingham test.
