Kruger heads to Croft for more UK Formula Ford competition


Single-seater racer Jayde Kruger heads into competition this weekend when he tackles round five of the Dunlop MSA Formula Ford Championship at Croft in North Yorkshire. Kruger leads the championship with four rounds under his belt and the Croft event marking the mid-point of the 10 round season.

The Croft Circuit is a 3.4 km long track located on the site of an old RAF base, but motorsport there dates back to much earlier, with records indicating competition in the 1920s. After WWII the circuit came into its own, hosting both national and international meetings.

It is here that South Africa’s Kruger will face his competition in the open-wheel Formula Ford field. Kruger’s nine-point championship lead is thanks to an excellent performance at Oulton Park earlier this month where he added a further six points to his existing lead.

Three races take place at each event, with race two always featuring a reverse grid. With tough competition from the other drivers, producing two race victories and a second place finish, Kruger proved yet again why he is the man in control of the series.


ruger is a former Formula Volkswagen champion here in South Africa and who is now one of several racers showcasing local talent overseas.

Kruger’s fellow competitors in the South African Single Seaters (SASS) will compete in the Formula Volkswagen and Midas Formula 1600 championship at East London on Saturday, 5 July, a week after Kruger’s latest outing in the Dunlop MSA Formula Ford Championship.


Locally the Formula Volkswagen championship leader is Robert Wolk (1 – Midas / Chemical Logistics / ATE) while the Midas Formula 1600 leader is Scott Temple (3 – Investchem) in class A and Rick Morris (8 – Investchem) the class B leader as they head into the fourth round of the season.
