Kiern Jewiss (GBR) Double R British F4


From a very young age Kiern has loved anything with an engine; quad bikes, field buggies, go-karts… anything! Racing is very much in the family with both Kiern’s Great Grandfather and Grandfather involved in motorsport and Kiern’s dad also racing karts too.

 

Kiern had his first petrol quad bike at the age of 2 and took to it straight away. He enjoyed his first real outing in a racing kart aged 7 and started racing aged 8. He won all of his ‘novice’ races and moved straight on to Honda Cadet racing at national level. Kiern has now been racing for 6 years and to date has managed to rack up an amazing 195 trophies, 5 British titles and a large number of Super One British Championship wins and podiums. Kiern’s success included Winning his 5th British title with Strawberry Racing in only his first year in the Rotax class. He also finished 4th in the 2015 Euro Max European Junior Championship.

 

Kiern got 2016 off to a great start as he won the WSK Champions Cup in Adria, Italy in his first race. In 2016, he competed in the WSK Italian Championships, the European Championships and the World Championship.

 

2017 saw Kiern Jewiss make the switch from karts to cars for the 2017 Ginetta Junior Championship. Displaying his ability to BTCC teams and to millions of fans at home, as the series is broadcast live on ITV, Kiern’s debut season was thoroughly impressive. 1 win and 12 podiums helped Kiern to be crowned as the 2017 Ginetta Junior Rookie champion, taking a record number 17 rookie wins in the process.

 

2018 brings a new challenge in Kiern’s career as he makes the step onto the single-seater ladder, teaming up with Double R Racing to compete in the British F4 Championship. Supporting the BTCC on the TOCA package, the championship is the UK’s premier single-seater series and is the first step on the FIA single-seater pyramid to F1. 

 

The 2018 season proved to be another enormously successful season for Kiern, as he went onto be crowned the British Formula-4 Champion, in just his first season in single-seater racing. In a debut season which would have fazed many drivers, by moving up into the single-seater racing ladder, Kiern showed immense skill, concentration and consistency throughout his title winning campaign. On his to way winning the Drivers’ Championship with Double R Racing, Kiern’s first season in the Championship saw him collect six wins, as well as scoring a record-breaking number of points, in addition to collecting a record-breaking amount of podiums. This all meant that the Double R Driver finished the season on a mammoth 445 points, a 71 point winning margin over his nearest rival, Ayrton Simmons. Winning the Championship at his home circuit at Brands Hatch – Kent, allowed Kiern to secure the Championship in-front of an adoring home crowd, allowing for jubilant celebrations from his friends and family in the crowd, as well as in the paddocks.

 

Kiern’s outstanding season in Formula 4 has not gone unnoticed, with the youngster being nominated as on of the four finalists for the BRDC McLaren Autosport Award, whilst also being selected as a BRDC Rising Star, undoubtedly attracting the attention of some of F1’s biggest teams.
