Tick­tum in for F3 Tro­phy races

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Dan Tick­tum will make his first ap­pear­ance in sin­gle-seater com­pe­ti­tion in the UK in over a year this week­end in the BRDC Bri­tish For­mula 3 Cham­pi­onship Au­tumn Tro­phy at Snet­ter­ton with Dou­ble R Rac­ing.

The Brit was handed a year-long ban by the MSA last Septem­ber for de­lib­er­ately crash­ing into Ricky Col­lard dur­ing an MSA For­mula race at Sil­ver­stone. He has tested Dou­ble R’s Fia-spec F3 car con­sid­er­ably this year in pri­vate tests – for which a race li­cence is not re­quired – and made his com­pet­i­tive re­turn to rac­ing in the Euro­pean F3 fi­nale at Hock­en­heim ear­lier this month with Car­lin, scor­ing a best fin­ish of 13th.

The 17-year-old last week re­ceived clear­ance to race at Ma­cau after sat­is­fy­ing re­quire­ments of the FIA, which had mon­i­tored him over the Hock­en­heim week­end.

Tick­tum will now con­test the Au­tumn Tro­phy as part of his prepa­ra­tions for the Ma­cau Grand Prix event, which he will also con­test with Dou­ble R. He will be part of a multi-car as­sault on the event for Dou­ble R, al­though any team-mates were yet to be con­firmed as MN went to press.
