Sean Walkinshaw is backing his new batch of rookies to make an impact in the Formula 4 Championship after completing his driver line-up.

Jordan Albert, from Silver-stone, has agreed to join Chipping Norton-based Sean Walkinshaw Racing (SWR) for the term.

The 17-year-old joins Vene-zuela’s Diego Borrelli and Danish youngster Nicolas Beer ahead of the first three rounds, at Silverstone on April 26-27.

Walkinshaw, the team’s owner, had success with inexperienced drivers in the inaugural F4 championship last year, claiming four wins and seven other podium finishes.

He said: “We’re delighted to complete our three-car line-up with Jordan and we’re confident he’ll make strong progress.”
