QUEENSLAND RACEWAY will play host to round five of the 2017 CAMS Jayco Australian Formula 4 Championship – supporting the Coates Hire Ipswich SuperSprint – where the championship heats up.

New Zealander Liam Lawson (Team BRM) currently leads by just one point over West Australian Nick Rowe (AGI Sport).

At Phillip Island’s round four in May, Victorian Simon Fallon (Team BRM) claimed his first-ever round victory in his Formula 4 career. Fellow CAMS Foundation Rising Stars Ryan Suhle (Zagame Autosport) and Cameron Shields (Team BRM) joined Fallon on the podium.

Shields is only 29 points off championship leader Lawson, with Suhle a further 67 points behind. Suhle has a substantial lead in the Burson Auto Parts Rookie of the Year standings, with 54 points covering he and his nearest contender Aaron Love.

AGI Sport’s Sage Murdoch enjoyed a competitive round too, however a flip in the third and final race saw critical points slip away. Aiming to overturn his luck, Murdoch has retired his #44 plate and will become the first Australian Formula 4 driver to race with the championship’s namesake, #4.
