This was a busy weekend in the junior formula world with several series competing across the globe. The majority of you have probably already heard who won the race, but you may not have heard who put in a good drive during the event. I’ve compiled a list of the “hard chargers” via an Excel spreadsheet from the various series that I cover here at Junior Open Wheel Talent.

The weekend “hard chargers” are as follows:
(I’ve linked to the drivers website when possible)

Formula BMW-Americas/Road America
Round 10- Olivier Lombard (5 positions—12th to 7th)
