Leanne Tander spearheads Sonic Formula Ford Series assault

Celebrated circuit racer Leanne Tander will spearhead an all-new Formula Ford Series line-up for Sonic Motor Racing Services in 2016.

Sonic Principal Michael Ritter was delighted to welcome the versatile now mother of two into the 2016 program admitting that he was already pleased with the single test session they’d completed together.

“This is an exciting time for Sonic. Leanne’s a terrific racer and I’m pleased to see that she’s going all out for this in 2016. I think we can really help her achieve her goals and I’m glad that we can allow her the freedom and the infrastructure to do it.”

For Tander the move to Sonic makes sense on a number of levels.

“We simply don’t have time to do this on our own,” she concedes, “with Garth’s Supercar program being so busy and with family commitments we have with our two children the idea of my racing program being in-house with Tandersport and us doing it all isn’t feasible anymore. With their experience, data and win record in Formula Ford the natural choice was always going to be Sonic.”
