Murphy tests USF4 with Kiwi Motorsport

New Zealand Formula Ford driver Ronan Murphy is back from testing a Formula 4 single seater at Buttonwillow Raceway, California. The test was with Kiwi Motorsport with a view to competing in the 2020 US Formula 4 Championship.

“It’s been awesome,” commented Murphy. “I managed to log around 200 laps over the two days and posted some strong and I believe competitive times, which will be a big factor in evaluating my plans for next year.

“The United States Formula 4 Championship is looking like the best option for me to pursue going forward in 2020 which could then lead onto other USA based Championships.

“The F4 cars are great to drive with paddle shift, slick tyres along with a bit of downforce and the perfect ‘stepping stone’ from what I’m in now up to the next categories in future seasons.”

Back home Murphy now prepares for the third national Formula Ford round at Teretonga Park in Invercargill in January 2020.
