Burdon set for Asia Formula Renault Championship
The deal sprouted from the 23-year-old Tasmanian successfully testing for the team last month with Burdon planning to move base in the near future.
“BlackArts Racing intends to keep winning races in the Asian Formula Renault championship in 2016,” team boss Bill O’Brien said.
“Having Josh with us for the full season gives us a talented, hard working young driver who is capable of winning every race he enters, in any format.
“Combined with our well-prepared cars, Josh will have a chance to win races in AFR Class A, and has the potential to win the AFR championship.”

“After our successful winter testing with BlackArts Racing I was determined to secure a seat with them for the 2016 Asian Formula Renault season,” Burdon said,
“The desire in the team to win and defend their championship title is very intense, so I am very excited and humbled to have been given the job to do that”.
The official AFR schedule is yet to be released, though the first race weekend will be held during the famous Pan Delta Racing Festival at Zhuhai International CIrcuit in front of more than 30,000 fans and live television, March 19-20.
