SCOTT GETS SURPRISE BRITISH F3 RETURN
British single-seater racer Harrison Scott will make a surprise return to the BRDC British Formula 3 Championship at Silverstone this weekend with HHC Motorsport.
Scott, who is currently third in the Formula Renault Eurocup points, will race HHC’S third car alongside team regulars Sisa Ngebulana and Ben Hingeley after a late deal.
Scott, 20, has experience in the formula when he took part in last year’s Autumn Trophy mini-series, which marked the competitive debut for the new Tatuus-Cosworth British F3 car.
He finished second in the points to Ben Barnicoat driving for Douglas Motorsport last November.
“I’m keen to do some extra racing around the Eurocup programme as we’re racing pretty much just once a month and I want to maximise my seat time,” said Scott.
“I like racing the British F3 car. It has a lot of downforce and is very strong through the faster corners and is also quicker than the Renault in a straight line. Saying that though the Renault has good aero and soft tyres, so the techniques through quick turns will be similar between the two. The set-ups have come a long way since I last raced the F3 car, but it should be relatable. I’d like to do more races if possible.”
HHC Motorsport’s Charlie Kemp said: “It is great to have Harrison in the car. He knows the track and should get up to speed relatively quickly, and we are sure he will be a valuable asset throughout the weekend.”
