Tristan Charpentier will return to the BRDC British F3 Championship this season switching to the Fortec Motorsport team
The 17-year-old Frenchman previously competed in two rounds in 2017 together with selected races in the SMP F4 NEZ Championship in 2017.
Charpentier said of the announcement
“I am very happy to join the Fortec family this year. I got on very well with the team when we tested at the beginning of the year and I think we can get some great results this year.”
Fortec Motorsports Team Manager Russ Dixon said
“We’re really pleased to confirm Tristan in our British F3 team for 2018. He delivered some very strong results in his races in the championship last year, and with his single seater experience and our track record of taking drivers to the next level, we’re confident that he will be running near the front this year.”
Tristan will partner Manuel Maldonado for the season which gets underway over the Easter Weekend at Oulton Park.
