Jackson Walls joins Arden in Formula Renault Eurocup for 2020

Australian rising star joins Banbury team for debut season in Europe's premier single-seater series.

Arden Motorsport are pleased to confirm Australian rising star Jackson Walls will join the team for the 2020 Formula Renault Eurocup season.

The 17-year old graduates into the series with the Banbury-based squad after two seasons in the CAMS Australian F4 Championship.

He also contested a part-season in the Asian F3 Championship last year, taking silverware at Suzuka and Shanghai en route to six overall in the standings, and recently celebrated his first pole position at Terratonga and a victory at Pukekohe in the Toyota Racing Series.

Walls’ first confirmed team-mate is Reshad de Gerus, with news on Arden’s third entry for the 2020 campaign set to be released in due course.

In 2020, the Formula Renault Eurocup will continue to visit a host of Europe’s most-renowned and challenging venues, including Monza, Silverstone, Nurburgring, Barcelona and a support slot at the world-famous Monaco Grand Prix.

Arden head into the new season on a high after registered a third-place finish in the Teams’ standings in 2019, with the aim to build on that result this time around.

Monza, Italy, hosts the season-opener on 18-19 April, 2020.

Ben Salter, Arden Formula Renault Team Manager said:

“Everybody at Arden Motorsport is delighted to welcome Jackson to our Formula Renault Eurocup team for 2020.

"He’s got a strong track record in Formula 4 and Formula 3-spec machinery, and all of that experience will be very useful in terms of driver development as he adapts to a new car and a very competitive championship.

"Jackson’s speed has been very impressive in the ultra-competitive TRS championship and we are looking forward to him continuing that this season in the Eurocup.”



Jackson Walls said:

“It’s a privilege to be joining Arden Motorsport for Formula Renault Eurocup for 2020 and I greatly appreciate the trust that everyone has placed in me.

"The team’s heritage shows it can provide an outstanding driver development environment, especially given the number of current Formula 1 drivers that have driven for Arden on their rise to the top tier.

"I’m looking forward to competing in the New Zealand Grand Prix this weekend, the final round of TRS, before moving to the UK to join the team.”
