1 Mins read

Carlin have announced Rupert Svendsen-Cook as their thrid driver for the 2010 Cooper Tires British Formula 3 International Series.

The 19-year-old Brit who has been racing in the Formula BMW Europe Series will make the step up to F3 to join the Racing Steps Foundation backed driver James Calado and Red Bull racer Jean-Eric Vergne as they bid to secure their third successive British F3 championship title.

“I’m delighted to be with Carlin for 2010,” said Svendsen-Cook, who finished sixth overall in Formula BMW this season. “Carlin has the best record of any team in British F3, and most importantly I already feel comfortable in the team. The F3 car is a fairly big step up from Formula BMW and is amazing to drive, with so much more grip than I am used to. Testing has gone really well so far and I cannot wait for the season and the racing to get underway.”

“We’ve been very impressed by Rupert’s performances in testing,” said Carlin race director Trevor Carlin, “and by the way he has gelled with the team. Our British F3 team is really starting to take shape now and it is exciting to think what they may be able to achieve together in 2010.”
