Nor­ris eyes Ma­cau GP bid for top tier F3 de­but

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Lando Nor­ris is tar­get­ing an at­tack on the Ma­cau Grand Prix for his race de­but in the top tier of For­mula 3.

Nor­ris wants to con­test the race as a warm-up for an as­sault on next sea­son’s Euro­pean F3 Cham­pi­onship.

The Brit, 16-years-old, leads the For­mula Re­nault Eurocup and the For­mula Re­nault North­ern Euro­pean Cup, and has won mul­ti­ple races in the BRDC Bri­tish F3 Cham­pi­onship. The Bris­tol-born young­ster also claimed the Toy­ota Rac­ing Se­ries ti­tle in New Zealand, notch­ing up 20 race wins to date this sea­son.

Fraser Sheader of ADD Mo­tor­sports, which man­ages Nor­ris, said: “Ma­cau is a great race and we don’t want to miss it if we can make it hap­pen.

“It’s ar­guably the most com­pet­i­tive F3 race of the year, and it would put him on a great foot­ing for next year.

“It’s look­ing like F3 will be the cho­sen route for the fu­ture, and rac­ing at Ma­cau would be the best way to kick it off.”
