Newly crowned Team USA Scholarship winners Oliver Askew and Kyle Kirkwood have arrived at Brands Hatch for this week’s Formula Ford Festival, where they participate with Cliff Dempsey Racing against a world of top young competitors. Races are held this weekend for the latest two drivers selected by Jeremy Shaw to receive the scholarships.
The longtime friends out of Orlando have both penned their first two blogs, which you can see below, via the Team USA Scholarship website:
- Oliver Askew: From Clueless to Champion; Practice Makes Perfect
- Kyle Kirkwood: An Amazing Journey; Ready to Go
Here’s a few pics on social media from the start of their journey and seat fittings:
They were guests to lead off an episode of Midweek Motorsport, Series 11, Episode 37, which is linked here.
They also managed to catch up with Team Canada Scholarship winner Parker Thompson, who is also competing there this year. Thompson finished second in this year’s Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Powered by Mazda standings.
