Team Fox Rac­ing steps up to F3 Cup with two ex-bri­tish F3 Dal­laras

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Mul­ti­ple Mono­posto cham­pion Rob­bie Watts will re­turn to the F3 Cup this year as part of a mul­ticar en­try from Team Fox Rac­ing.

The Sil­ver­stone-based squad will field a to­tal of three cars, but could ex­pand to four later in the year.

It will run an ex-hitech Rac­ing Dal­lara F308 fit­ted with a Volk­swa­gen en­gine for Watts, who lifted the Mono 2000 ti­tle three times be­tween 2013 and ’15.

Daryl Jones will han­dle the team’s sec­ond en­try, which is the Car­lin Dal­lara F308 that Zach Cla­man demelo took to two F3 Cup wins at Snet­ter­ton last sea­son. The team will also as­sist with the run­ning of Mark Har­ri­son’s older F302-toy­ota.

Team boss Dan Fox, who for­merly worked with the Red Bull F1 Team and Fortec Mo­tor­sports, said: “We’ve run Rob­bie in Monos for the last few years and been very suc­cess­ful so we’ve wanted to move up a step for a while.

“We want the ti­tle this year and we’re look­ing at bring­ing an ad­di­tional car out later in the sea­son.”

The open­ing rounds of the F3 Cup take place at Doning­ton Park this week­end and a 15-car grid is ex­pected.
