Arden has announced that Australian Formula Ford driver Cameron McLeod will join its British Formula 4 line-up for the remainder of this season.
The 16-year-old will debut at Silverstone this weekend (September 25/26), with rounds at Donington Park and Brands Hatch then finishing off the season after that.
The signing of McLeod means Arden has returned to a four-car line-up in British F4 for the first time since the 2019 season finale.
“I’m really excited to take this next step in my career and join the British F4 championship, and with such an established, race-winning team such as Arden Motorsport,” said McLeod.
“There are few more iconic circuits than Silverstone on which to make my debut, so it’s safe to say I’m feeling pretty positive right now in the lead up to the weekend.
“I’ve been working hard with the team to get myself prepared, but equally I can go in with no expectations and treat it as a learning exercise for the future, there’s no pressure on me.”
McLeod is currently sitting 11th in the Australian FFord standings at the halfway point of the season, with a best finish of sixth.
He’s also experienced in touring cars, racing at the Mount Panorama circuit earlier this year in the Bathurst 6 Hours and campaigning a Suzuki in outings in the east of Australia in 2020.
“It’s a pleasure to be able to welcome Cameron to Arden Motorsport, and we look forward to helping his development as a driver over the remaining three rounds of the season, starting at Silverstone,” Arden’s team principal Garry Horner added.
“He’s got an excellent team behind him, and three very capable team-mates to draw on for experience and guidance, so the ingredients are there for a positive next step in his career. Best of luck to all our drivers for the weekend ahead.”
