What turned out to be a reasonably tough weekend for Jordan Lloyd actually sees him netting some good points, and more importantly retaining the lead of the Jayco Formula 4 Championship at the Gold Coast 600.

“A good weekend for myself and the BRM team, we ended up second overall for the round so no real complaints after a few stewards decisions we didn’t totally agree with”, said Lloyd after the final race.

The final 15 lap race went the full length without a safety car and saw Lloyd in second place holding off Luis Leeds, a gear change issue just before the finish line saw Leeds cross half a nose ahead of Lloyd.

“Unfortunately I missed out on 2nd place in race 3 due to a dog to dog gear change, but we come out of this round with the championship lead still, so we are happy”, said Lloyd in a post-race conference.

Jordan leaves the Gold Coast round with 264 championship points, 39 points ahead of his nearest rival and 150 ahead of third place. “I’m looking forward to the next round at Phillip Island, it’s a circuit that will suit the F4’s with our aero package and sticky tyres and I’ve had a reasonable amount of racing there over the years, so I should have some good pace” said Lloyd.

The Formula 4 Series heads to Phillip Island for the penultimate round on 20-22 November.
