Emily Linscott successfully completed her first test in a United States Formula 4 (US F4) car on October 29-30, 2020 at Motorsport Ranch in Cresson, Texas.
The UK-based driver has her sights set on running the full championship series with US F4 in 2021. Linscott is the only female competitor to have scored podium finishes in the Championship class of the Lucas Oil Formula Car Series, and she is hoping to continue her trajectory up the American Open Wheel ladder.
After meeting with several teams in the F4 United States Championship Powered by Honda following the 2020 Lucas Oil Formula Car Series finale, Linscott elected to test with the Kiwi Motorsport team before heading home to the UK for the racing off-season.
Linscott was happy with the test, turning more than 100 laps and learning the new car in a variety of weather conditions. Laying the foundation for her 2021 campaign was the goal and she feels confident that goal was achieved.
“I had a great time with Kiwi Motorsport these past two days,” said Linscott, “and I’m going to spend this offseason working hard to raise enough funding to compete in America again next year.”
Linscott added, “I’m so thankful for all of my sponsors, and all of the Crowdfunding campaign supporters who raised enough money for me to not only race full time this season, but to finish the year with a test that allowed me to start building for 2021 before flying back to England.”
