BRDC F4 Champion Will looking to finish season with a flourish

Fresh from claiming the 2015 Duo BRDC Formula 4 crown at Donington Park with his 10th victory of the year last time out, Will Palmer is aiming to end the season strongly and add to his record-breaking tally of wins at Brands Hatch this weekend (26/27 September).

Heading into the final trio of races of the year, Will holds an unassailable 119-point lead over his HHC Motorsport Harri Newey in second place. The Southwater racer will be pushing as hard as ever at his home race, as the Duo BRDC Formula 4 field tackles the 1.2-mile Indy Circuit in Kent.

At the penultimate round of the season held at Donington Park in Leicestershire, the BRDC Rising Star enjoyed his best weekend in the series to date, taking two wins and a second place to clinch the title in style. Particularly impressive was his reverse-grid win from seventh on the grid, as he carved his way through the field to take the chequered flag over eight seconds ahead of his nearest rival Jack Bartholomew.

A controlled drive in a twice safety car interrupted final race of the weekend, saw the 18-year-old lead from lights-to-flag and cross the line ahead of his closest title contenders Harri Newey and Tom Jackson. That result secured the crown for Will ahead of this weekend's final trio of races.

Brands Hatch is a circuit Will knows well as he claimed a double victory on the longer Grand Prix layout, his favourite track, at the venue in August. He also claimed a win on the shorter Indy circuit in the final race of the 2014 BRDC Formula 4 Winter Championship, which helped secure the title in the eight-race series.

Speaking ahead of the weekend, Will said: "It's nice to be going in to the weekend with no pressure in the championship but at the same time, I'm keen to finish the season as well as possible. As ever, I'll be aiming to take pole position in qualifying and have a good weekend from there."

A packed field will take to the Indy Circuit for races 22, 23 and 24 of the season, with qualifying getting underway at 11:05 on the Saturday with the first race of the weekend taking place the same day at 15:55. Race two begins at 11:20 on the Sunday with the final encounter of 2015 starting at 15:40. The two-day meeting will also mark the final appearance of the Ralph Firman-designed BRDC F4 car, which has served the series for the last three years, before it is replaced by the new, more-powerful Tatuus-Cosworth car from the 2015 Autumn Trophy onwards.

Live timing and text updates will be available throughout the weekend on the official Formula 4 website, with the regular one-hour long highlights programme available on ITV4 and BT Sport a week following the race meeting.
