Hillspeed signs Bahraini for British F3
Bahraini racer Ali Al Khalifa will compete in BRDC British Formula 3 from the next round at Oulton Park with the Hillspeed squad.
The 20-year-old has raced in the Italian F4 series for the past two seasons and will now step up to British F3. His deal was done too late for him to take part in last weekend’s Rockingham races.
Team principal Richard Ollerenshaw said: “We are elated to have signed Ali to the team. The deal didn’t quite come together in time for the Rockingham weekend but he’ll be on track at Oulton Park at the end of May where he hopes to make a good impression.
“This is the perfect stepup from a championship like Italian F4, offering more power, much improved aerodynamics and a lot of competition.”
