Skelton moves to British F3
Chris Dittmann Racing has confirmed British F4 front-runner Josh Skelton as its first driver for the 2020 BRDC British Formula 3 Championship.
The 19 year-old steps up to the UK’s premier single-seater championship after two successful seaons in British Formula 4, taking 15 podiums – including two victories – en route to a best overall finish of fourth in 2019.
“It’s amazing to be teaming up with Chris Dittmann Racing this season and I believe they will give me everything I need to push at the front of the field“, Skelton said, “After a solid season last year in British F4, we took a break over the winter and looked at our options. We decided the BRDC British Formula 3 Championship was the next step in my career and where I would learn the most. The car has a lot more downforce than what I have previously driven, and it will be great to see what the new upgrade kit is like. I can’t wait to get the 2020 season started.”
