Justin Sirgany has entered the 2017 Formula 4 United States Championship — and is the first Jamaican to enter this competition.
The 15-year-old has been busy training for the second leg of the 18-race championship series set for June 9 -11 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway after practising at Homestead-Miami Speedway in Homestead, Florida, on April 8-9, which saw 33 cars on 14 teams participating in the event.
Justin Sirgany is sponsored by The Marley Group
The Jamaican, managed by Global Racing Group, recently declared The Marley Group, including Tuff Gong International, Bob Marley Museum, One Love Cafe and Bob Marley Foundation as a new sponsor. Cedella Marley, daughter of Bob and Rita Marley and CEO of Tuff Gong International, announced the groups’ new brand ambassador on Instagram in April.
The F4 U.S. Championship has seen significant growth over its inaugural season in 2016.
Sirgany turned 15 before the season-opener and under International Automobile Federation rules can start earning points toward a Super License, a qualification allowing the licence-holder to compete in the Formula One World Championship as a driver.

On from there at the Virgin International Raceway in Alto, VA on August 26 -27. Then the season will end at the Circuits of Americas in Austin, Texas on September 16 -17.
