Jamie Stanley competing in the Lotus Cup UK last season

GT racing regular Jamie Stanley is to drive in this year's MSV F3 Cup, after confirming a deal with Lanan Racing.

Stanley's GT racing career includes winning the GT4 class of the British GT Championship with Speedworks Motorsport as well as successes in Lotus Cup UK and Radical UK Cup competition. Stanley is due to compete in both championships this year as well as the F3 Cup.

The season will be Stanley's first ever in an F3 car, starting with the season opener on Easter Monday (April 9) at Oulton Park in Cheshire, supporting the first round of the Avon Tyres British GT Championship.

“I couldn't pass up this opportunity to race an F3 car with Lanan Racing and I'm really looking forward to racing in the F3 Cup,” said Stanley. “I'm under no illusions as to the challenge ahead as this will be the first time I have even driven an F3 car since my scholarship days in 2004. I've got a test day on the Friday which will be my first time in the car so we will see how it goes from there but it should be good fun.”

Stanley will be part of Lanan's experience line-up, joining fellow drivers Kat Impey and Mark Terry for the 2012 season.
