Callum Hedge won two out of three races for Sonic Motor Racing Services at the second round of the Australian Formula Ford Championship at Queensland Raceway.

The former New Zealand Formula Ford champion qualified on the front row in second, and dominate the opening race of the weekend in the wet, winning by over six seconds. Hedge fended off his rivals in a race-long fight for the lead to go back-to-back in Race 2, before contact with Tom Sargent on the opening lap of Race 3 saw him retire from the race. Hedge was penalised two championship points as a result but remained second overall for the round.

Angelo Mouzouris qualified fourth and fought his way in the top five for the majority of the weekend. After finishing seventh in Race 1, he moved up two spots to fifth in Race 2, before scoring his personal best national race result after a race-long battle for second in Race 3. 

Courtney Prince improved her speed and race remained in the top ten all weekend, while Jay Hanson steadily climbed up the field on his first visit to Queensland Raceway, and finished Race 3 with a solid top ten finish.

Round 3 of the Australian Formula Ford Championship heads to one of Sonic’s home test tracks at Winton Motor Raceway, supporting the Supercars Championship on May 24-26.

RACE 1 – 1st
RACE 2 – 1st

“We started off strong with a front row qualifying position and two race wins which the team and I were really happy with.

“We were hoping to carry that form into the third race, we dropped to second off the start before I had that coming together with Sargent exiting Turn 6.

“Sonic gave me an awesome car so I can’t thank them enough for that. We’re definitely confident heading to Winton after the form we’ve showed this weekend.”

RACE 1 – 7th
RACE 2 – 5th
RACE 3 – 2nd

“We qualified strongly but didn’t have a great run in the wet Race 1, we didn’t quite adjust to the changing grip levels well enough.”

“We battled again in Race 2 but I made up two spots to fifth, and pulled it all together to fight for second place in the final.”

“It was hard to fend off Mineeff in Race 3 with the huge tow advantage at the track, but i’m really happy to equal my personal best race finish in Formula Ford.”

RACE 1 – 6th
RACE 2 – 9th
RACE 3 – 7th

 “Qualifying went alright in sixth, then I got up to fourth in Race 1 in the wet conditions before I made a mistake and dropped back to sixth. 

“I had a strong start in the second race but lost ground and fell back to ninth, but I had a great race in Race 3 and moved forward back to seventh. 

“Overall it was a great weekend of learning and hopefully we can carry that forward to Round 3 at Winton supporting the Supercars.”

RACE 1 – 11th (from rear)
RACE 2 – 10th
RACE 3 – 9th

“It was my first time at Queensland Raceway this weekend so we spent the early part of the weekend learning the track and built up our speed from there.”

“I climbed up to 11th from the rear of the grid in Race 1 after an incident in qualifying, and had some great battles through the pack in all three races, finishing ninth in Race 3.

“I’m looking forward to racing at Winton in three weeks in front of the huge crowds and teams at the Supercars round”
