Callum Hedge has taken the lead of the 2023 Formula Regional Americas championship, after a dominant display at Road America over the weekend.
Hedge was in unstoppable form, qualifying on pole by nearly a second, before going on to win all three races at the Wisconsin circuit.
Following a mixed opening round that saw him lose valuable points with mechanical problems, his Road America results have launched him into the series lead after two of six rounds.
“It’s great to get the three wins and show the real potential we have over here in the States,” said Hedge. “It’s a long way from home, and to be able to perform over here is a really cool feeling, and it’s awesome to repay all those who backed me to get to this point.
“I wouldn’t be here without the help of the Tony Quinn Foundation and Giltrap Group, and I just can’t thank them enough for their faith in me.
“June will be a massive month – heading back to Australia for Porsche Carrera Cup in Darwin with Team Porsche New Zealand Earl Bamber Motorsport, and then Monday night we jump on the plane back over to America for Round 3.
“It’s going to be busy, but I’m living my dream driving race cars, so I’ll make sure I’m at my best.”
Backed by Giltrap Group, the Tony Quinn Foundation and Tasman Motorsports Group, the 19-year-old New Zealander’s dominance was clear, leading every lap, lights to flag.
The next round of the Formula Regional Championship will be held at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Ohio on 22-25 June, but before then, Hedge will return to Australia for Round 2 of the Porsche Carrera Cup Australia Championship in Darwin on June 16-18.
