LOUIS FOSTER JOINS BRITISH F4 WITH DOUBLE R RACING

“I’m delighted to announce I’ll be joining Double R for the 2019 British F4 Championship”, commented Foster.
“The team are proven winners and have all the capability of delivering a championship winning car. Seeing how successful they were last season in F4 and in F3, it fills me with a lot of confidence as I make my debut in single-seaters.
“Making the step from Ginettas to F4 is going to be a tricky one, but I’m confident in my abilities and with the expert guidance of the Double R team there’s no reason we can’t be fighting at the front this season.”
Double R Team Principal Anthony Hieatt echoed Foster’s delight and has no doubt the 15-year old will be fighting on all fronts when the new season begins at Brands Hatch on 6th-7th April.
“It’s fantastic news to be able to confirm Louis as a Double R driver for 2019 and we’re all looking forward to working with him during the coming season”, said Hieatt.
“We were super impressed with his performances in Ginetta Junior last year and have no doubt he’s going to be an incredibly competitive driver in his first season in British F4 with us.
“Obviously, last season was fantastic for Double R winning both the British F4 and BRDC British Formula 3 titles and we’re determined to battle every bit as hard again this year. Louis is a great young prospect and we’re delighted he’ll be racing in Double R colours in 2019.”
