Louis Foster is prepared for a trip north as the British Formula 4 Championship heads to Knockhill, Scotland, for the eighth round of the year and the BRDC Rising Star aims to continue his challenge in the championship fight.




Having impressed at Knockhill with pole and two wins last year in the Ginetta Junior Championship, the 16-year-old will be confident returning to the Scottish circuit as his excellent first season in single-seater competition enters the final stretch.



Currently sitting in third in the overall standings for the season, with eight podiums and three wins already this season, Louis will be keen to build on last round’s performance at Thruxton - which saw a podium finish in the final race as he closed the gap to 36 points in the championship standings to second-placed Sebastian Alvarez.



The Copart-sponsored driver will be keen to impress after it was announced last month that he had been given BRDC Rising Star status before then being selected in the final 10 for 2019 Aston Martin Autosport BRDC award a week ago.



The Knockhill track is one of the shortest on the calendar at just 1.27 miles, it’s narrow and undulating surface makes it one of the toughest but most exciting circuits on the calendar.



“This weekend, I would love to get myself back on the top step of the podium as I feel the team and I deserve it after coming close on a few occasions. Knockhill is a unique circuit and one that is a fun challenge to master. I won twice at the circuit last year so it would be fantastic to repeat that.”



Saturday's qualifying session and the first race will start at 10:55 and 15:45 respectively, followed by races starting at 10:15 and 15:35 on Sunday - with the final race of the weekend shown live on ITV4.
