It is a trip to the most eastern race on the 2023 race calendar for Crosslink Kiwi Motorsport as this weekend they head to the New Jersey Motorsports Park to kick off the second half of the season. As one of the premier teams in the F4 U.S. Championship Powered by Honda and the FR Americas Championship Powered by Honda, the Texas-based program will look to add to their 2023 win and podium total which has already reached astronomical proportions.
Six hungry competitors will enter the F4 side of the Crosslink Kiwi Motorsport program as Patrick Woods-Toth and Jesse Lacey are first and third in the championship points chase with Titus Sherlock putting a trio of team drivers inside the top-five in fifth. Joining the three drivers inside the top-five in points, Hannah Greenemeier, Alex Benavitz, and Jett Bowling will pilot Crosslink Kiwi-prepared machines this weekend at NJMP. Crosslink Kiwi Motorsport leads the Team Championship because of race wins and podium results.
Owning the FR Americas program in 2023, Crosslink Kiwi Motorsport enters New Jersey sitting first through fourth in the championship standings led by Callum Hedge who has won the last seven races in a row. Ryan Shehan sits second and has earned nine podium results in nine starts ahead of Cooper Becklin who has eight podium finishes. Manuel Roza has remained consistent all season long to advance to fourth in the point standings while perennial Formula Pro USA Western Championship front-runner and race winner Nicole Havrda will join Crosslink Kiwi Motorsport this weekend in her FR Americas debut alongside Max Hewitt who will return for his second event.
“We are anxious to get the weekend started and look forward to trying to continue the monumental success that we have had this season,” explained Teena Larsen. “There is no slowing down and it is full steam ahead as we try to earn both the Driver and Team Championships in both F4 and FR.”
Set to hit the track for a few test sessions on Friday morning, Crosslink Kiwi Motorsport will take on official practice Friday afternoon. Saturday will feature a single qualifying session followed by the first wheel-to-wheel race before Sunday sees the green flag fly for races two and three on the weekend.
