SUCCESSFUL SANDOWN FOR SIMON

Cool Drive Distribution Dream Motorsport driver Simon Fallon has come through a successful Round 5 of the Australian Formula 4 championships at Sandown, gaining valuable experience, adding more points and building on his 2016 debut season.

After initially qualifying 7th on Friday, Race 1 saw him move up to 6th place, Race 2 produced a solid 7th and Race 3 saw Simon consolidate that again with 7th place, to finish the weekend with 20 points from the round.

Sporting new Cool Drive Distribution livery on his Dream Motorsport machine, Simon certainly created some impressive images for television, getting some air into Turn One towards the end of the second race of the weekend on the demanding Sandown circuit.

The young Victorian took solace though in feeling extra speed aboard his Formula 4.

“At least we found some pace!” Fallon said.

“Had a bit of fun out there still. This year’s all about experience, we’ll take it as a positive and move on.”

Round Six of the CAMS Jayco Australian Formula 4 Championship will next visit the streets of the Gold Coast, in what will be a thrilling final round of the year.
