Leading Formula Ford racer Brandon McCaughan has confirmed that he will make his GB4 debut in 2024 with reigning champions KMR Sport. 

McCaughan, the most recent winner of GB4’s Shootout for Formula Ford contenders, finished fourth in the National Formula Ford Championship last year, with victories at Oulton Park and Kirkistown. 

The Northern Ireland-based contender has enjoyed a varied career that started in Irish Rallysprinting and Rallycross as a junior, before moving into single-seaters in 2021 with an appearance in the Formula Ford Festival. 

A full-season campaign followed in 2022, finishing seventh overall and qualifying for the first GB4 Shootout, where he experienced slicks and wings machinery for the first time.

Remaining in the National Formula Ford Championship last year, he claimed his first race wins, with the season culminating in an eighth-place finish in the Formula Ford Festival.

He then impressed during his second GB4 Shootout appearance, showing significant improvements compared to the previous year, and claiming the £20,000 prize contribution from series promotor MotorSport Vision (MSV). 

The 20-year-old is now gearing up for his first race appearances in GB4, and does so with double GB4 teams’ champions KMR Sport, who also claimed drivers’ honours last year with Tom Mills. McCaughan joins Harry Burgoyne at the Gloucestershire-based outfit, as the squad aims to maintain its excellent form in GB4.
