Richardson Racing confirms Harry Webb for British F4

Richardson Racing confirms Harry Webb for British F4

29.03.2017: On the back of a successful pre-season testing programme in recent weeks, Richardson Racing is pleased to confirm that it has agreed

On the back of a successful pre-season testing programme in recent weeks, Richardson Racing is pleased to confirm that it has agreed terms on a deal with Harry Webb for the 2017 F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford season.
 



Harry becomes the first driver to sign with Corby-based Richardson Racing for the new British F4 campaign, with discussions ongoing with a number of other drivers about the currently vacant second car.
 


The Norfolk racer joins the British F4 grid on the back of a stellar career in karting, which has seen him secure championship silverware at the highest levels of the sport.
 


Eager to take his career to the next level after making the move into car racing last year in Formula Vee, Harry has already shown his potential with a series of impressive performances during testing.
 


That included an eye-catching performance on his first outing in the car at Brands Hatch in mid-February, when his pace in the wet was a match for anyone else on track.
 


With further solid performances at Donington Park, Snetterton and Rockingham under his belt, Harry has now agreed terms on a deal that will see him compete in British F4’s all-new Challenge Cup.
 


Drivers in the Challenge Cup will compete in seven of British F4’s ten meetings, with the events at Knockhill in August and the Brands Hatch season finale at the end of September being mandatory.
 


Harry and the team will then nominate five other meetings in which he will compete this year – the first of which will be held at Brands Hatch this weekend as the 2017 season gets underway.
 





“I’m really happy we’ve been able to do this deal and without doubt, moving into British F4 is the biggest step in my career so far,” he said. “Testing has gone really well and I think I’ve improved every time we’ve been out on track, which leaves me feeling confident about the year ahead.
 


“Of course it won’t be easy because I’m still learning about the car and will have to learn some of the circuits, but I’m not planning to just make up the numbers and I want to run towards the front of the field.
 


“The more races I do and the more experience I gain, the easier that should be and there is no doubt that I’m aiming to try and win races before the season is done.”
 


Harry becomes the third driver to sign up with Richardson Racing for the 2017 season after Ginetta GT5 Challenge entrant Alex Toth-Jones and Ginetta Junior rookie Luke Browning, with team boss Gwyn Richardson pleased to welcome the 20-year-old into the fold.
 


“From the moment he first got into the car, Harry has shown real potential behind the wheel and we’re obviously delighted that we’ve been able to strike a deal,” he said.
 


“Although he hasn’t done as much testing as some of the other drivers on the grid, he has already shown front-running pace on track and is only going to get quicker as the season goes on. With that in mind, we have no doubt that he will be challenging for podium positions over the course of the year at the very least.
 


“He certainly has the talent to win races and we think he could become a real force to be reckoned with in British F4.”
 


With drivers in the Challenge Cup eligible to score points towards the main championship, Harry and the team could extend their current deal to cover all ten meetings on the calendar at a later date.
