Jamie Caroline and Pirtek Racing target further success at Oulton Park

18/05/2017 | Racing

Pirtek Racing’s rising star Jamie Caroline will look to maintain his astonishing run of success in the F4 British Championship Certified by FIA – powered by Ford when the series heads for Oulton Park this weekend.

The 18-year-old produced a record-breaking performance last time out at Thruxton as he stormed to three victories in three races at the wheel of his Carlin-run car.

It earned Jamie a place in the history books as the first person in British F4 to win all three races on a weekend, and saw him take his tally of victories this season to seven in just nine starts.

That run of success means Jamie holds a lead of 86 points in the standings, having already surpassed his season total last year.

Jamie will now seek to strengthen his grip on top spot in the standings as he makes the trip north to Cheshire for rounds ten, eleven and twelve of the campaign at a circuit where he has enjoyed plenty of success in the past.

Back in 2015, a double victory kick-started his charge to the Ginetta Junior Championship whilst last year in his debut single-seater campaign, Jamie brought home a double podium finish in what was – at the time – his highest scoring weekend in British F4.

Similar results are very much the aim for Jamie as he returns to Oulton Park bidding to retain his position as the man to beat on track.

“It’s been a fantastic season for me so far, and has gone better than I expected it to,” he said. “Thruxton last time out was really special to take three wins in a weekend and it means we have a big lead in the points, but I’m not going to get complacent heading to Oulton Park.

“It’s a great circuit where I’ve had some good results in the past, but it’s also one where you can’t afford to make any mistakes as there isn’t any room for error.

“Although I showed at Thruxton that I can overtake and race to the front of the field, it is really difficult to pass at Oulton Park so qualifying on Saturday morning is going to be very important.

“If we can maintain our strong qualifying performance and secure a place near the front of the grid, then we’ll certainly be in the mix and hopefully I can enjoy another strong Oulton Park weekend.”

After qualifying on Saturday 20 May at 09.05, the first of three British F4 races will be at 14.15 later that day, with race two following at 17.45. Race three will then be held on Sunday at 14.05.

The Sunday race will be broadcast on ITV4, with live timing and results from the weekend being available at www.tsl-timing.com
