Harrison Scott will rejoin HHC Motorsport for the second Snetterton round of the BRDC British F3 calendar. Scott made appearance earlier this year at the Silverstone round however failed to make a major impact.

The 20 year old, who currently competes in Formula Renault 2.0, retired in his first race back in June. This meant he started at the back for the reverse grid second race. He struggled with the damp conditions and only finished seventeenth and the final race was cancelled.

Despite this, Scott proved to be genuinely quick during qualifying and will be a key contender coming into this weekend. He performed strongly during the Thursday test session, improving throughout the three dry practice sessions and recording a time of 1:44.246.

Meanwhile, European Formula 3 and Sahara Force India test driver Nikita Mazepin moves into the Carlin team. Mazepin, who’s had a tough season, has jumped in to replace Lando Norris while he’s away in Formula Renault 2.0 NEC.

After two rounds away, recovering from his Oulton Park injuries, Ameya Vaidyanathan will return to his Carlin seat alongside Mazepin and championship leader Ricky Collard.

Mazepin himself proved to be competitive during Thursday testing with a time of 1:43.757, the fourth fastest of the day. As for Collard, he proved to be the man to beat, setting the fastest time in the first session. His championship rival Matheus Leist and Tarun Reddy rounded out the top three.
