Harrison Scott, who currently competes in the Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 series, will make his debut in the BRDC British F3 Championship this weekend. The 20 year old will not be new to the machinery though, having competed in the Autumn Trophy last year.
He currently sits third in the Eurocup, where he won the rookie title last year, collecting two podiums in the opening round at Aragon. He’s had a variety of success over the years, including being a twice runner-up in the British Formula Ford Series.
Since then, he’s been nominated for a McLaren Autosport BRDC Award, before finishing runner-up in another series. This time he managed to take title battle to the final BRDC Formula 4 Autumn Trophy round, where he lost out to Ben Barnicoat.
His previous success, mixed with his knowledge of the Tatuus-Cosworth car, should see him become one of the most competitive drivers on the grid this weekend. Although he’ll be out of the championship fight, his actions are very likely to affect those around him as he settles into the HHC Motorsport team.
“I’m really excited to get out in the British F3 car on the Silverstone GP Circuit this weekend.” said Scott “It’s a track I’m very familiar with, having had some Formula Renault experience there and also driven my sponsors’ 1956 Formula Cooper around there numerous times.”
“When this opportunity came up to race with HHC Motorsport we took it with both hands, especially with the limited track time and races I currently have with Eurocup Formula Renault. I’m excited to work with the HHC team, they have been a top team in the championship so I’m hoping together we can achieve some great results.”
He joins Sisa Ngebulana and Ben Hingseley at the team, taking the unused third car that had been filled with Omar Ismail and Raoul Hyman in previous rounds.
Charlie Kemp, Commercial Director of HHC Motorsport, commented: “It is great to have Harrison in the car for Silverstone. It is a track that he is familiar which should help him get up to speed relatively quickly, and we are sure he will be a valuable asset throughout the weekend.”
