Rookies test British F3 car
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.
