SIMON'S POINTS HAUL FROM IPSWICH SEES CLOSE BATTLE FOR ROOKIE HONOURS

Cool Drive Distribution DREAM Motorsport driver Simon Fallon will be eager to chase the two drivers in front of him in the race for the 2016 CAMS Jayco Burson Auto Parts Australian F4 Championship 'Rookie of the Year' title, as he now heads to his home round at Sandown.

Despite having never driven at Queensland Raceway, Simon came through a successful Round 4 debut event at Ipswich with a bag of points to move past DREAM Motorsport teammate Josh Conroy in the F4 championship standings.

Fallon will be banking on his 'more comfortable' hometown knowledge and prior experience at the Victorian track, having already raced at Sandown aboard a Formula Ford.

Team BRM’s Josh Denton has returned to the lead of the rookie standings with 88 points, and sits fifth in the overall standings.

With both Jack Smith and Denton enjoying a competitive outing in Queensland, Smith is Denton’s nearest rival and three points adrift with 85 championship points.

Josh Conroy dropped from fifth to eighth in the standings, however the DREAM Motorsport driver and Japanese Super Formula engineer is only 17 points behind Denton.
 

Round Five of the CAMS Jayco Australian Formula 4 Championship next visits Sandown Raceway in Victoria, supporting the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship’s Sandown 500 on September 16–18.
