Logan Hannah to race in Scottish FF1600 Championship

February 7, 2019

British F4

Logan Hannah will compete in her first full campaign of single seater racing in 2019 as she makes the jump up to the Scottish Formula Ford Championship with Graham Brunton Racing. The first round of the championship at Knockhill in April won’t be Logan’s first race in Formula Ford’s after making on appearance last season before going onto race in the annual Walter Hayes Trophy. Logan has also raced in the Formula 4 UAE championship. 

Since her career started Logan has raced mostly in the UAE and Scotland. Two completely different locations which provide completely different tracks and challenges. However, that experience is something many of her competitors may not have and could give her the edge in adapting as the 2019 season progresses.

A record breaker, Logan’s talents were recognised in 2016 when she was crowned Karting magazine Female Driver of the Year before making history a year later as she became the first ever female driver to race in the UAE F4 Championship. Since then under the guidance of YRDA and TBOS Logan has focused on testing and preparing for this moment. Being selected for the SMS Academy Squad was another achievement for Logan last year that will only strengthen her chances of success this year. 

After hours of testing and simulator work Logan made her debut in the Scottish Formula Ford Championship last year at the season finale. In tricky conditions at Knockhill Logan recorded a best result of seventh place, a great start which gave her confidence going into the annual Walter Hayes Trophy at Silverstone.

Logan’s WHT journey unfortunately ended in a crash at the start of the semi-final after a driver ahead struggled to get into second gear his wheels locked up sending him straight over the front of Logan’s car. However, she did at least get some racing experience in one of Formula Ford’s biggest annual events in the heats which she can take into this season.

This year will be the 41st running of the championship which has a fantastic pedigree. The six-weekend season kicks off at Knockhill on the 7th April and will revisit the circuit five more times in 2019. It’s going to be a tough test and will no doubt come with ups and downs, but the 17-year-old can’t wait for the season and has already began testing.

Logan Hannah: “"I am very excited to have this opportunity with GBR after not doing much racing last year. I am really looking forward to plenty of close racing and seat time around my home circuit of Knockhill. With the work I have done so far with Graham Brunton and his team plus our upcoming winter testing program, I hopefully will be regularly battling it out up front in this season's Scottish Championship. I will also be looking to build on this additional experience and momentum with GBR when we head down south to the FF Festival and WHT later on in the year". 
Jamie Horner: “We are delighted that Logan will be competing in the Scottish Formula Ford Championship this year. We wish her every success this season and I know that her strength and determination off track will only lead to successful results on track.”
