Amer­i­can Das com­pletes Car­lin’s BRDC Bri­tish For­mula 3 driver line-up

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Amer­i­can Cameron Das has com­pleted Car­lin’s line-up for this year’s BRDC Bri­tish For­mula 3 Cham­pi­onship.

The 16-year-old be­came the first win­ner of the US For­mula 4 Cham­pi­onship last year, claim­ing nine wins, and also com­peted in USF2000 be­fore con­test­ing the Bri­tish F3 Au­tumn Tro­phy event at Snet­ter­ton with Car­lin last Oc­to­ber, fin­ish­ing sev­enth over­all with a best fin­ish of fifth.

Das joins the pre­vi­ously con­firmed James Pull and Enaam Ahmed to com­plete the line-up at Car­lin – the team that ran Ricky Col­lard to the run­ner-up spot last sea­son.

“Bri­tish For­mula 3 feels like the nat­u­ral next step in my rac­ing devel­op­ment,” said Das. “I’ve al­ready had a chance to see Car­lin in ac­tion and I couldn’t be more ex­cited to spend 2017 with them.”

Trevor Car­lin added: “It takes a lot for a driver to dom­i­nate any part of the sea­son in the way that Cameron did with US For­mula 4 last year, both phys­i­cally and men­tally, so we’re look­ing for­ward to wel­com­ing him.”

Das’s deal means he be­comes the sev­enth driver to con­firm his place on the 2017 grid.

Das won US F4
