He’s a proven talent after a successful two-year stint in F4, and his track record really does speak for itself. The time for him to make that step up into F3 is definitely now, and we’re very pleased to welcome him back for what will be a new and exciting challenge for the whole team.”
Alex Connor said: “I’m very happy to have the chance to move up to the BRDC British Formula 3 Championship with Arden.

“The Championship races on some of my favourite tracks, so I can’t wait to tackle them with the extra speed and power of the F3 car – and I know that Spa is going to be awesome!“
