Thank you for your excellent photos Alison and Renee.
The other very big news we have to share is that you may remember that Briney went to Italy with Alan and Paul Kirkby in June to go and meet one of her idols Bimba Sjoholm who races in the F2 World Chmpionship. Briney had the opportunity to meet some of the teams and see how it all works on the world stage. Out of that trip came an offer from Jonas Andersson from Team Sweden for Briney to race the Team Sweden F4 at the final four rounds, starting in China in October, Qatar in November then Abu Dhabi and Sharjah (Dubai) in December. After much consideration and thought and lots of advice seeking and the fact that our Formula Future drivers can now race an F4 (same as Queen B) from the age of 14 provided they have had at least 2 years experience racing in J3 we have accepted this once in a lifetime opportunity.
We understand the enormity of the task but its, as I said to good to pass up. Briney has the bit between her teeth and is now on a very steep learning curve to make sure she is ready for China. With the help and tuition of Rhys Coles, Paul Kirkby, Todd Leary and Simon Troy we will get Briney as ready for the experience as we can. Briney has now raced the F4 at Port Macquarie, Raymond Terrace, Windsor and St George and next will be more practice and then the UHPBC Spectacular where she will race in Formula Future & F4. This meeting will probably be Briney’s last race in Formula Future as the Cheap Trick boat has already been sold and its a special place for her as it was the 2010 UHPBC Spectacular where she had her first Formula Future race.
We have been humbled by the support and this is going to be an expensive exercise and something we would love to fund ourselves but wont be in a position to.
Come and have a fun night and help us raise the funds to support Briney Rigby Racing on her Team Sweden F4 journey.
