Charpentier makes British F3 debut
Tristan Charpentier will make his BRDC British Formula 3 Championship debut this weekend at the Oulton Park circuit, as he’s joined Chris Dittmann Racing. The French driver competed in the French Formula 4 Championship last year, where he finished fifth overall with six podiums and one win. The 16-year-old will undertake a limited campaign in British Formula 3, where he will race alongside Kenyan Jeremy Wahome and Brit Omar Ismail. Charpentier will also race in the SMP Formula 4 Championship this year. Charpentier, who is from Bethune, already has experience of racing in the UK after he took part in three Ginetta Junior races during 2015.
“I’m very excited to be racing with Chris Dittmann Racing for the first round of the BRDC British Formula 3 Championship at Oulton Park. It’s going to be a big step up for me, as I’m currently also racing in the SMP Formula 4 Championship. The British F3 car will be totally new to me, and I’m really looking forward to working with Chris and the team to learn, progress, and achieve the best results possible.” – Charpentier said.
