FIA F3 racer Hy­man makes BRDC se­ries bow

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

FIA Euro­pean F3 reg­u­lar Raoul Hy­man made his de­but in the re­mod­elled BRDC For­mula 3 Cham­pi­onship at Brands Hatch last week­end.

Hy­man joined the HHC Mo­tor­sport team for the triple­header around the Brands GP loop. The 19-year-old, who is rac­ing for Car­lin for his sec­ond term in Euro­pean F3 this year, took a best fin­ish of seventh.

“I got the call from Char­lie [Kemp, HHC boss] say­ing there was a spare car and de­cided it would be fun,” said Hy­man. “The car is the clos­est com­par­i­son to a true F3 car I’ve driven. It has good down­force so you can still lean it in to a cor­ner on the throt­tle and know it will grip, but it can’t do it to the ex­tent an F3 car can.

“Test­ing on Fri­day was a washout so the first time I’d driven on the dry Pirelli tyres was qual­i­fy­ing, which made it in­ter­est­ing. At the mo­ment this was a one-off.”
