SUCCESSFUL FORMULA 3 TEST FOR QUAIFE-HOBBS
Formula Renault Eurocup front-runner Adrian Quaife-Hobbs tested a T-Sport Dallara VW Formula 3 car at Pembrey this week as the 18 year-old evaluates his options for 2010. The former double T-Cars champion and FBMW racer successfully completed 90 laps around the Welsh track and was very happy with the opportunity.
"It was a great experience to run in a British F3 car with T-Sport and it has certainly given us an option for next season," said Adrian. "The car was good to drive, and I felt confident very early on and was able to set some quick times for the wet conditions.
"We haven't yet decided on our plans for next season, we still have another round remaining of the Formula Renault Eurocup this weekend in Spain, but as first tests with a new team go, I was very pleased with the way the T-Sport team operates and happy with the results."
T-Sport boss Russell Eacott was equally delighted with the performance of the BRDC Rising Star, who after two years racing in Europe, may well be set to return to race in the UK.
"Adrian acclimatised very well to the car and we were very impressed with his performance after just ten laps," said Russell. "The weather conditions were far from deal but Adrian was immediately on the pace and we would love the opportunity to work with him in British Formula 3 next season.
"There is no question that his time in Formula Renault has helped him tremendously, his feedback was terrific and he showed great ability and discipline in working with the team at this level. We very much hope we can work with him in the future as I feel he could be a serious contender."
Adrian concludes his 2009 racing season with the final rounds of the Formula Renault Eurocup at Motorland Aragon in Spain this weekend after which the Tonbridge racer will continue a test programme before finalising plans for the 2010 season.
