Randle to continue forward push at Winton


Impressive Formula Ford young gun Thomas Randle will be looking to emulate past success when he heads to Winton for the next round of the Australian Formula Ford Championship this weekend.

On his first visit to the rural Victorian circuit earlier this year Randle took a race win, a feat made all the more impressive considering it was his first ever meeting in a racing car.

Now with six meetings under his belt and a podium in the last Australian Championship round at Queensland Raceway the teenager will be aiming for another victory around the twisty Winton track.

"My first meeting at Winton was great. To get a race win in our first meeting was probably a bit of a shock but we've been pretty competitive all year and that has continued as we moved into the national series," Randle said.

"My first two national rounds were at tracks I'd never seen before so I'm really excited to get back to Winton and see what we can do at a track I've done a fair few laps around.

"The Evans Motorsport Group team have been really great to work with and if all goes to plan our Volvparts Mygale should be right on the pace this weekend."

And after missing the Championship's opening round Randle admits that he'll be going all out for the win rather than looking for points this weekend.

"I suppose the advantage is that I don't have to worry too much about Championship points and can push a bit more than some of the other guys.

"After skipping the opening round of the Championship we aren't really in the chase for the title but instead we'll be trying our best to grab a few race wins before the end of the year.

"With Winton being our test track there's no better place than here to try and grab our first national series victory," he said.
