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.”
