This weekend our National Championship will be joining the NSW Formula Ford Championship at Wakefield Park. The combined field will feature 33 drivers, with 21 cars fighting for the National Championship standings.
Hamish Ribarits is currently leading the Championship standings, only one point ahead of team-mate Hunter McElrea. The Sonic pair are being followed by Liam McLellan on 67 points. Privateer Zac Soutar sits 4th in the rankings, two points behind the McLellan.
Queenslanders Nathan Herne and Cameron Shields had a spectacular battle for the round win in the Victorian Formula Ford Championship just over two weeks ago. The BF Racing drivers will be keen to replicate their form at state level and duke it out for National wins.
Jake Donaldson, winner of the Cylinder Head Innovations Hard Charger Award for Round 2, is the first New South Welshman in the National standings. Donaldson showed solid pace at Queensland Raceway and will definitely be one to watch this weekend at his home track.
All of the action will kick off this Friday with a private practice day organised by Wakefield Park. The race meeting will then start on Saturday morning with qualifying, followed by race one in the afternoon and two more races on Sunday.
