Autosport (UK) - - CLUB AUTOSPORT - STE­FAN MACKLEY

Bri­tish For­mula 4 race win­ner Paavo Ton­teri was just one of sev­eral driv­ers to get their first taste of BRDC Bri­tish For­mula 3 ma­chin­ery on track last week at Sil­ver­stone.

Finn Ton­teri tested with Dou­ble R Rac­ing, the team he raced with in

Bri­tish F4 and which car­ried Li­nus Lundqvist to the 2018 F3 ti­tle.

Ger­man For­mula 4 cham­pion Lirim Zen­deli tested with Fortec Mo­tor­sports, but won’t race in the se­ries. “He was just learn­ing the cir­cuit for FIA For­mula 3 next year,” said team boss Richard

Dut­ton. “He was very quick though.”

Fortec also tested IMSA Pro­to­type Chal­lenge cham­pion and Pro Mazda Se­ries driver Kris Wright.

Else­where, Chris Dittmann Rac­ing ran re­cent For­mula Ford 1600 race win­ner Tommy Foster, while Car­lin tested Kaylen Fred­er­ick, who fin­ished sixth in this sea­son’s USF2000 se­ries.
