Jack Harvey will remain with the Carlin team for the 2012 British Formula 3 season, it has been confirmed, and has high ambitions for his 2nd year with the championship-winning outfit.

The 18 year-old from Lincolnshire impressed in his debut season in 2011, scoring a maiden win at the Nürburgring and claiming 4 more podiums on his way to 9th in the overall standings. Following further winter testing with Carlin, Harvey was confident in his abilities after a year still adapting to F3 cars after competing in Formula BMW in 2010, where he finished as championship runner-up.

As a result, Harvey is aiming for nothing less than the 2012 title: “I'm really looking forward to staying with Carlin for my second year in British Formula 3. My goal for the season is to win the championship; I have a great team around me at Carlin who I believe can help me to achieve this ambition.”

Trevor Carlin also has faith in his latest driver signing – his 2nd so far: “We're delighted to have Jack back on board with us. Having made the big step up from Formula BMW, Jack really developed as a driver last year and by the middle point of the season had become a consistent front runner – the highlight of his season being a much deserved victory at the Nürburgring. With the experience of a year in F3, we expect Jack to be a championship challenger from the outset.”
