Breakout Weekend at Miami Speedway for Jake Bonilla

October 19, 2020



F4 US Championship rookie driver Jake Bonilla was at last rewarded with a pair of Top 10 finishes at the penultimate round of the 2020 championship at Homestead Miami Speedway.

18 year old Bonilla entered the Formula 4 United States Championship Powered by Honda as a very raw rookie, with no prior karting and very limited racing experience.

Driving on the Jensen Global Advisors racing team, Bonilla showed flashes of speed while consistently moving up the grid most every weekend during the 2020 race season. Jake;'s hard work all season and in pre-season testing was finally rewarded at the Miami event with a 9th place finish in the second race, and a 10th place qualifying and finishing result in the third race.

Driver Coach Eric Jensen states, "It's a challenging process developing young race car drivers, and even more so with raw rookies. There is so much for young drivers to learn and the competition is very tough, so it takes considerable patience and belief that the top results will eventually come as we stick with the proven development process."

F4 US Championship is the first step in the ladder system to develop the best young race car drivers who aspire to ultimately compete in the Formula One World Championship.

The coming weekend is Jake Bonilla's home race at Circuit of the Americas since he resides in nearby Boerne Texas, which is a suburb of San Antonio. With prior track experience, Jake is gunning for his first-ever Top 5 result his #2 Ligier Honda F4 car.
