It is a seven-car driver lineup for Kiwi Motorsport at this weekend’s F4 United States Championship and FR Americas Powered by Honda events at the Virginia International Raceway (VIR). Taking on the 3.27-mile road course, VIR will look to carry the momentum from their most recent event as they look to add to their 2021 podium and win totals.
Entering the weekend with a win on his resume, Bryson Morris will look to carry that momentum into the ultra-fast VIR facility and continue his winning ways.
“I am super pumped to have scored a win on my first ever F4 weekend,” explained Morris. “We are hoping to keep the success up going into VIR. It will be a difficult for sure as I have never been there before, but I’m up for the challenge.”
Joining Morris on the F4 side of the program will be the usual suspects of Gabriel Fonseca, Viktor Andersson, Joseph Daniele and female standout Emily Linscott, who are anxious to get back behind the wheel and fight for podium results in Virginia.
Along with five F4 drivers, Kiwi Motorsport will enter a pair of drivers in the FR Americas Championship Powered by Honda over the event weekend and onwards to the series finale at the Circuit of the Americas (COTA). Joining the squad and rounding out the seven-driver lineup will be Ryan Yardley and Cooper Becklin, who have both been on track with Kiwi Motorsport this season. Coming to the series with experience, Yardley is a veteran in the Toyota Racing Series, winning the Toyota 86 Championship and then competing in one season in the Toyota NZ F3 Championship claiming a second-place result at the A1 GP Circuit at Taupo.
Becklin will be making his FR Americas debut at VIR. A veteran of karting and competing in the F4 Western Championship, Becklin comes off a podium result at the Portland International Raceway during the Exclusive Racing FR program and has the knowledge and skills to run at the pointy end of the ultra-competitive FR Americas grid.
With seven drivers behind the wheels of Kiwi Motorsport prepped cars, Hunter McElrea will return as the team’s Driver Coach after claiming another victory in the Indy Pro 2000 Championship at New Jersey Motorsport Park.
“As the driver coach, it’s my job to fast track the learning for the drivers as quick as possible,” explained McElrea. “I’m looking forward to getting them up to speed this weekend and helping the entire team fight for race wins and podium results.”
