SWB Motorsport joins BRDC F4 field for 2013
Founded by Team Principal Simon Baldry, the squad have an excellent reputation thanks to success in the Formula Renault BARC series, where they’ve enjoyed several podiums and race wins from just a handful of seasons. They also have experience in the Intersteps Championship and, more recently, have expanded into karting, running a number of drivers across those three categories. Meanwhile, Simon Baldry has worked in motorsport all his life and was the number one mechanic for a variety of well established teams before founding SWB Motorsport.
Simon Baldry said: “We’re delighted to be joining the new BRDC Formula 4 Championship as we feel it perfectly fills the gap between karting and single seaters and will help teach our young drivers slicks and wings racing. In these difficult times too it’s refreshing to see a sensible car price with sensible parts and running costs, combined with all the hallmarks of the BRDC and MSV.”
Jonathan Palmer, Chief Executive of series organisers MotorSport Vision, said: “I’m pleased to welcome a successful and ambitious team like SWB Motorsport to the F4 grid. They have clearly recognised that F4 is the perfect step for young drivers starting their single seater racing careers at a time when obtaining funding and sponsorship is extremely tough.”
