BRDC Bri­tish F3 teams eye­ing third car en­tries

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

The three BRDC Bri­tish For­mula 3 teams that fielded just two cars in the sea­son opener at Snet­ter­ton last week­end are all con­sid­er­ing run­ning a third driver in fu­ture rounds.

Fortec Mo­tor­sports and Lanan Rac­ing both have a third car avail­able, while Dou­glas Mo­tor­sport could buy an ad­di­tional Tatuus-cos­worth.

Fortec boss Richard Dut­ton said: “Hope­fully we will have three cars for the next round. We are talk­ing to two or three driv­ers at the mo­ment.”

Lanan team prin­ci­pal Gra­ham John­son added: “We’ve still won the cham­pi­onship twice and Toby [Sow­ery] run­ning at the front showed what we can do.”

Dou­glas Mo­tor­sport will see how it per­forms in the first few rounds be­fore de­cid­ing whether to buy a third car and sign an­other driver.

The other five teams – Car­lin, Dou­ble R, HHC Mo­tor­sport, Chris Dittmann Rac­ing and Sean Walkin­shaw Rac­ing – all ran three cars at Snet­ter­ton.
