British F4 graduate Florescu tests with Douglas
British F4 race-winner Petru Florescu tested one of Douglas Motorsport’s BRDC British F3 cars last week.
Florescu finished sixth in the F4 standings last season with five wins to his name, but was excluded from the Knockhill meeting last year for punching Carlin team-mate Devlin Defrancesco.
The Romanian has signed to race in Euro-formula Open with Campos this season, but completed three days of testing with Wayne Douglas’ eponymous outfit at Silverstone and Oulton Park. Carlin drivers Cameron Das and James Pull joined him at Oulton.
Motorsport News understands Florescu is not likely to race for the outfit in British F3 in 2017, with Douglas yet to announce either of its drivers for the coming campaign.
