PALMER LMER TO TACKLE BRITISH F3 AT SPA
European F3 driver Raoul Hyman and Formula Renault Eurocup title challenger Harrison Scott in recent rounds.
Palmer won last year’s BRDC F4 crown with HHC, taking a record 12 wins from 24 races. He is competing in both the Formula Renault Eurocup and Northern European Cups this season. The fourth round of the NEC contest, in which Palmer is fifth in the points, takes place at Spa at the end of this month. The Eurocup also races there in September.
“Spa is a long and technical track so racing in British F3 will be great experience,” said Palmer.
“I’ve tested both the British F3 and Frenault at Silverstone, so I have a good understanding of the differences. The biggest is the brakes as you have to hit them much harder in the Renault. I’d like to do more but the last F3 races clash with my Frenault campaign.”
HHC boss Charlie Kemp said: “It’s great to welcome Will back. This fixture fits with his Renault programmes and makes sense as it gives him experience of a superb track in a relevant car.
“The F3 has a bit more power and downforce, but it’s relatable. Plus having a driver of his experience in the car helps us with development.”
