AGI Sport’s Luis Leeds has further extended his lead in the 2019 CAMS PAYCE Australian Formula 4 Championship, with victory in round four at Phillip Island.
Leeds, who clinched round three honours on Saturday, excelled in the setting sun on Sunday to win the sixth and final race of the weekend by six seconds.
“I want to prove that I’m one of the best drivers here in Australia and I’m worthy of going back overseas. I really hope not only Supercar teams but TCR teams, GT teams, F1 teams… I want them all to know that.”
AGI Sport’s Luis Leeds has continued his crushing one-lap form to clinch his fourth consecutive Castrol Pole Position for the 2019 CAMS PAYCE Australian Formula 4 Championship.
With this weekend’s Phillip Island round a double-round event across six races, Leeds will have the upper-hand starting the opening races for rounds three and four from pole position.
“That’s pretty good. Same story as always, AGI Sport gave me a perfect car for both Castrol Poles,” Leeds said.
“We’ve been working hard since Sydney, so I’m glad our results reflect that. There’s a lot on stake this weekend, so it’s important to get wins in the races and see where we are the end of the round.”
AGI Sport’s Luis Leeds has extended his championship lead in Sydney Motorsport Park, to be the first driver to break the 100-point barrier this year after collecting 65 across the weekend’s three races.
Leeds carried on his 2016 winning form again in 2019 to claim Castrol Pole Position and Race One yesterday, a last gasp podium in Sunday’s Race Two, and a dominant victory in the final race.
“I’ve been saying it all week, the team’s absolutely unreal,” Leeds said.
“On top of that I’ve got a great support network around me. Family, management, friends ,they’re awesome. Every week they motivate me to keep striving for glory and I think it’s shown.”
CAMS PAYCE Australian Formula 4 Championship leader Luis Leeds has extended his championship lead after victory in Race One at Sydney Motorsport Park on Saturday.
Continuing his Friday form, Leeds started the day by also securing the Castrol Pole Position over Lochie Hughes by two-tenths of a second.
Leeds then got the jump on Hughes at the race start and continued his form for the remaining 11 laps to win by more than three seconds.
“I’m on a roll,” Leeds enthused.
