SPANISH driver Alex Palou has signed up to Chipping Norton’s Sean Walkinshaw Racing (SWR) for the BRDC Formula 4 Championship round at Silverstone.

The 17-year-old is a team-mate of Walkinshaw at Campos Racing in the EuroFormula Open and is making the most of a summer break in the series, where he has won twice, to gain extra mileage this weekend.

The SWR boss has backed the new signing to deliver straight away.

Walkinshaw said: “The F4 car is obviously new territory for him, but we’re sure his quality will shine through and he’ll be up to speed pretty quickly.

“We’re quietly confident he can achieve some big results at the weekend.”

Palou joins up with SWR’s Jordan Albert and Diego Borrelli at Silverstone.

Qualifying and round one will take place on Saturday, with two races scheduled for Sunday.
