Hedge is set for back-to-back racing weekends, but on other sides of the world.
Fresh off the back of a successful weekend in Darwin, Australia racing a Porsche Carrera Cup car, the 19 year old New Zealander is already prepping for his next event - the PERMCO Grand Prix of Mid-Ohio, this weekend. Hedge left Darwin on Sunday night after the securing second overall in the Pro class, to land back home in Auckland, a relatively short 8 hour journey.
The next step of his journey will be a long haul 16 hour flight to Ohio, United States of America, via Chicago and return.
When Callum lands back in Auckland after Round 3 of Formula Regional Americas this weekend, he will have spent over 49 hours (two days) in the air in the last 13 days, travelling between Auckland (New Zealand), Chicago, Illinois (USA), Darwin (Australia) and Columbus, Ohio (USA).
Hedge is the current Formula Regional America championship leader, and is looking to continue his Round 2 form, where he took all three race wins, and topped every session.
Hedge must balance the switch from a tin-top Porsche 992 car using Michelin tyres, to the open-wheel Honda-powered Ligier JS F3 cars on Hankook tires.
Callum’s 2023 Formula Regional Americas season would not be possible without the support of the Tony Quinn Foundation, the Giltrap Group and Tasman Motorsport Group.
