Ojeda to make Formula Ford step with Borland Racing Developments


Reigning Australian Junior Karting Champion Jayden Ojeda will make the next step in his career in motor racing in 2015 after confirming he will join Melbourne based Borland Racing Developments to compete in the Victorian Formula Ford Championship, commonly recognised as the World’s Premier Junior Development, the open-wheel option will be Ojeda’s first step in car racing.


The Sydney driver will join World renowned Formula Ford factory team, Borland Racing Developments who produce the only Australian built and developed car on the grid, Spectrum, and he is confident of his chances with the team already banking an extensive range of successful results over many years of competition.


“I’m really excited to be joining Borland Racing Developments for next year’s season of Formula Ford. It will be a great experience both from the racing aspect and with how much I will learn about the engineering and dynamics of the car, considering they have a great knowledge of them and the driving style needed to be fast during racing. I believe it will help me significantly succeed and become a better driver for the future,” Ojeda said.


After many years competing in elite level karting in Australia, Jayden is looking forward to the new challenges of competing in Formula Ford, highlighting the need to become accustomed to using a manual gearbox as being significant during testing. With extensive experience around him, the 15 year-old is upbeat about his chances heading into his debut season.


“Making the step from Karting into Formula Ford is always going to be a challenge, with so many more aspects to consider, including a manual gearbox, however it is an essential step to my success in the future as a driver.”


“I am looking forward to working closely with both Mike (Borland) and Mitch (Martin) both in testing and racing, they have so much experience and success in Formula Ford and it will be great to learn from them as I go through the year,” Ojeda added.


Team Principal of Borland Racing Developments and Spectrum designer, Mike Borland is excited to have Ojeda forming part of his Formula Ford line-up next season and admits it will provide an essential stepping stone for Jayden in his professional career in racing.


”I am excited to have signed Jayden to our team, he has achieved so much success in karts this year, as well as coming highly recommended by his karting engine builder Adam Macrow, who was of course the first Spectrum Formula Ford Champion nearly twenty years ago.”


“Formula Ford is still the best place to start in car racing as it offers drivers their best chance to learn the skill base needed to forge a successful career as a professional racing driver,” Borland said.


A test program will continue during January before the first round at Phillip Island in April.
