Tommy Smith joins team JD Motorsport for the 2021 Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine campaign. The 18-year-old Australian who spent last seasons in the F3 Asian Championship, tested the Italy-based single seater in early 2020, but school commitments and travel restrictions prevented him to make his European debut.
“I’m delighted to welcome Tommy back to our team“, team principal Roberto Cavallari said. “Due to his school commitments and the worldwide health emergency, which were incompatible with racing in Europe, he was forced to cancel his program right after testing. Despite the challenges, he stayed close to us and for 2021 he will finally be able to run in the full Formula Regional by Alpine Championship.”
