Luke named as BRDC Rising Star for 2021

Reigning British F4 Champion Luke Browning has been named as a Rising Star by the British Racing Drivers Club ahead of the 2021 season.

Luke will embark on a new challenge this year when he moves to the German-based ADAC Formula 4 series with US Racing; the team headed by former F1 racer Ralf Schumacher.

The Cheshire-based teenager is one of just two single-seater drivers to be added to the Rising Star programme this year; the other being FIA Formula 2 racer Liam Lawson.

The BRDC Rising Stars programme is open to drivers aged 24 and under who are deemed to be future of the Club, with drivers who are scouted for the programme being given the honour of representing the BRDC in their respective championships.

Luke will be able to stay on the programme until the year in which he celebrates his 24th birthday.
