OLIVER WESTLING WILL GRADUATE TO RACE IN THE FORMULA REGIONAL AMERICAS CHAMPIONSHIP
California rookie Oliver Westling will take another big step in his driver development program, as he graduates to compete in the Formula Regional Americas Championship starting at the Virginia race event in October.
Oliver has competed in eighteen (18) races over seven event weekends driving the Ligier F4 car, including the first four rounds of the 2022 F4 US Championship. To prepare for his F4 US series debut, Oliver also competed in the F4 West Coast Winter Series where he scored two podium finishes en route to a 2nd place result in the series championship.
Jensen F4 Championship Team owner Eric Jensen comments, "Oliver is naturally quick and has developed his driving and racing skills at a rapid pace during the past year. Finishing the 2022 race season with Oliver competing at the higher level Formula Regional Americas Championship is ideal, so that he can gain experience in advance of competing full-time in the FR Americas series in the 2023 racing season."
Speeds increase substantially as young drivers graduate from the Ligier F4 race car to driving the considerable more powerful 303 horsepower turbocharged Ligier F3 race car. There is also the added challenge of understanding aerodynamic grip, as the Ligier F3 race car generates significantly more downforce from the diffuser and larger front and rear wings.
