JENSEN Rookies Racing F4 California Series At Laguna Seca

June 28, 2024


Providing an opportunity to take another significant step in their young race car driver development program, the JENSEN team is making the long trek to California for Athan Sterling and Ethan Brobston to compete in the F4 California Series at the world famous Laguna Seca race circuit.

17 year old Athan Sterling began his racing journey by attending one of the JENSEN team's F4 Racing Camp programs in February 2024. Since, the young driver from Ohio has practiced and raced at circuits across the United States including making his race debut driving one of the JENSEN team's F4 cars at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in April 2024.

20 year old Ethan Brobston lives in Nashville Tennessee. With several years kart racing experience, Ethan also made his car racing debut by attending one of the JENSEN team's F4 Racing Camp programs in May 2024.

Team owner Eric Jensen stated, "Surely one of the most rewarding things in life is helping young people chase their dreams. Athan and Ethan are two terrific new drivers that we have added to our team roster, and both have shown exceptional natural talent in the short time that we have been working together."

Jensen continued, "Weathertech Raceway Laguna Seca is arguably the nicest circuit in the United States, and Monterey California is surely one of the most appealing destinations on our annual racing calendar. So it's terrific timing that this race both made sense for the continuing development of Athan and Ethan, and that we were able to add this race weekend to our JENSEN team's busy summer racing schedule."

Preceding their race weekend at Laguna Seca, Athan and Ethan will make two additional test days driving the JENSEN team's Ligier F4 race cars at Buttonwillow Raceway. Located 2 hours north of downtown Los Angeles, Buttonwillow is one of the best test tracks in the country. The test plan will include optimizing brake application and release, increasing mid-corner lateral G usage, and ultimately elongating the tire scrub phase of the speed trace.

Exclusive Racing has for many years operated the FORMULA PRO USA WESTERN CHAMPIONSHIPS and the 2024 season features six race weekends at four terrific circuits in California including Laguna Seca and Sonoma Raceway.

Drivers compete driving the same Ligier F3 race cars used in the Formula Regional Americas Championship, and the F4 specification cars used in the Ligier JSF4 championship.
