Team BRM Ready for Winton.

Team BRM Drivers Karl Reindler and Nic Jordan are ready to show some more of their impressive season 2004 form this weekend, as the Australian Formula 3 championship reaches its half way point at Winton Motor Raceway in Victoria.

Currently lying third and first in their classes respectively, the team is confident that the pace shown by both drivers at the third round of the championship will be replicated this weekend.

The tight and twisty 3.0km Winton layout always provides close racing right throughout the field, and if the action seen at the previous round of the championship is any indicator to go by, a super tough F3 round awaits the team.

Team BRM tested at the track recently, and team owner Bronte Rundle said that the team was confident of results going into the weekend.

"We set times that were faster than Karl went around there (Winton) last year," he said. "And every change we made to the car made it go a bit faster, so we are very positive going into the round."

Rundle also said that last years form should see BRM looking good for the weekend. "Considering Karl was in the top 3 in his first visit to the track last season, we have no reason to believe that he won't be able to do it again. We have a very good base line set-up around Winton, and we are confident that we will be on the pace this weekend. "

Karl Reindler -- UTS Geophysics Dallara F301 Speiss Opel.

Lying just two points behind second place in the series, Karl has had a consistent season so far, the standout being a race win in the opening round on the Streets of Adelaide.

Karl made his Winton Debut last season, and after qualifying in the top 4 for both races, raced at the front of the field to walk away from the meeting with a pair of podium positions to his name.

"The car was fantastic at the test last week. We made some good changes and we were right on the pace on a green track," he said. "The car was already very good there from last season, so we are looking pretty good."

Nic Jordan -- AMS Group / ROH Dallara F398 Speiss Opel.

Despite missing the opening round of the championship, Nic Jordan has fought off all comers in the F3 Trophy class since making his debut at Oran Park in round 2, and currently leads the class by 22 points.

"This is a learning year for Nic, but his performances so far have been fantastic," Said team owner Bronte Rundle. "Nic has learnt the tracks we have been at very quickly so far this season. The car Nic is driving is a proven quantity around Winton, so it should be on the money reasonably quickly."
