Ronan Murphy will compete in the Formula Ford Festival with Track Tec Racing at the Mike Pero Motorsport Park, Ruapuna on 30 April – 1 May 2021.
Murphy joins Leo Scott in the brand new Ray GR20 and is excited about the opportunity to get back into a single seater after competing in the TR86 this season.
“Going into the festival I am looking to maximise the opportunity I have been given and maximise the equipment I have under me to hopefully deliver a strong result for everyone involved,” commented Murphy. “There is going to be some incredibly tough competition especially from some of the NZ Formula Ford Championship competitors, but I look forward to giving it a crack with the team at Track Tec Racing.”
Murphy is no stranger to single seaters and has previously competed in Formula First and Formula Ford here in NZ and last year competed in F4 in the USA with Kiwi Motorsport.
“The Formula Ford Festival is set to be a great weekend and we are looking forward to unveiling our livery for the brand new Ray GR20s,” commented Matt Waters, Track Tec Racing’s manager. “I’m happy we have a strong driver line up with Leo Scott and Ronan Murphy and this weekend will lead in nicely to the Track Tec Racing’s ‘Accelerate to the Podium’ where we are currently recruiting drivers for the 2021/22 season in both Formula First and Formula Fords.
“The prize put up in conjunction with Ray Race Cars is very exciting, Brands Hatch is a great circuit for Single Seaters.”
A program has been set up for the winning driver to compete in the 50th running of the Formula Ford Festival at Brands Hatch in the UK.
The Formula Ford Festival celebrates both 40 years of the South Island Formula Ford Club and 50 years of Formula Fords in NZ.
