Dutch teenager Job van Uitert hasn’t ruled out hav­ing an­other shot at the For­mula Ford Fes­ti­val next sea­son after an im­pres­sive de­but last week­end.

The 18-year-old, who is fourth in this year’s Ital­ian For­mula 4 Cham­pi­onship, made his FF1600 de­but with Geva Rac­ing in a Van Diemen RF89. He put in a strong drive to fin­ish se­cond in the His­toric Fes­ti­val Fi­nal, hav­ing been el­bowed down to 11th on the first lap. He then fin­ished 12th in the main Fi­nal.

“Con­sid­er­ing it’s my first time rac­ing a Kent-pow­ered car, it was a lot of fun and my times were re­ally good,” said van Uitert.

“I’m go­ing to test a For­mula Re­nault Eu­rocup car soon, but next year I’ll prob­a­bly do both Ital­ian and Ger­man F4 to keep gain­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. But I’ve re­ally en­joyed this event so maybe I’ll look to come back for next year too.”
