As reported in today's edition of Motorsport News, a fully funded British F3 test in one of Double R’s National Class Dallara Mugen-Honda cars is on offer to the young driver who most impresses at both this month’s BRSCC Formula Ford Festival and November’s Walter Hayes Trophy.

A panel of judges comprised of Double R team boss Anthony Hieatt, USA Team Scholarship head Jeremy Shaw and James Beckett will select the winner after the two traditional 'end of season' events. The winner must be 23 years-old or under and compete in the Kent engine class of the Festival, which takes place at Brands Hatch on 27/28thOctober. Jeremy Shaw emphasised that the prize won’t necessarily go to the winner of the Festival, “Bizarre things can happen in knock-out events so it will go to someone who has shown exceptional ability and will benefit from the prize.”

The prize is estimated to be worth £6,500 and includes tyres, insurance & team costs. Double R’s Hieatt was delighted to invest in the prize, “FF1600 is a great breeding ground for young drivers so we are excited to offer the test. It will also help spread the word about how affordable National Class F3 is”.

James Beckett added, “This is an amazing opportunity for a young driver to sample a higher level of motorsport, and it’s a fantastic incentive to get young drivers back into Kent Formula Fords. FF1600 has long been a fantastic base for career racers and offering this prize shows that the class is still recognised within the higher echelons of the sport.”
