Nor­ris set to miss three Bri­tish F3 rounds

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

BRDC Bri­tish For­mula 3 ace Lando Nor­ris will skip a fur­ther two rounds of the cham­pi­onship this year, rul­ing him­self out of the ti­tle chase.

Nor­ris is dove­tail­ing his Bri­tish F3 com­mit­ments with his cam­paign in the For­mula Re­nault Eurocup with Josef Kauf­mann Rac­ing. Nor­ris al­ready skipped the F3 triple­header at Brands Hatch ear­lier this month to race at Aragon, where he won two races.

There is a fur­ther clash be­tween F3’s fourth round at Oul­ton Park and the FR Eurocup event at Monaco, and Nor­ris will also skip the penul­ti­mate F3 event at Snet­ter­ton in Au­gust to race in the Fre­nault North­ern Euro­pean Cup at Assen.

“It’s a hugely busy year for me and it’s a shame I won’t be do­ing the full F3 cham­pi­onship but I’m fo­cus­ing on Fre­nault in Europe,” said Nor­ris.

“We looked at the pos­si­bil­ity of do­ing both Monaco and Oul­ton [Eurocup races on Sun­day May 29, whereas F3 races Satur­day and Mon­day], but it didn’t work out and would have been a dis­trac­tion for both cham­pi­onships.”

Car­lin is in talks to run Colton Herta as Nor­ris’s re­place­ment for the F3 rounds.
