PALMER LMER TO TACKLE BRI­TISH F3 AT SPA

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

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.”
