WALKER ENTERS F3 EURO SERIES

James Walker is making a last-minute entry into this weekend's F3 Euro Series races at Brands Hatch following his excellent second place in the British International Formula 3 Championship at Mondello Park near Dublin last Sunday.

The young Jersey driver feels it will give him valuable experience on the different tyres which the Euro Series runs on ahead of the annual unofficial Formula 3 world cup, the Masters event at Zandvoort in the Netherlands next month.

"It will definitely be a worthwhile exercise," he says. "These are the only Euro Series races in the UK and of course we know Brands Hatch well, so it's a good opportunity. But the main objective is to get some good data on the Kunho tyres which we have to use at the Masters.

"However, out of only three proper finishes out of the eight British International F3 races this year we've been second in two. So we've clearly got race-winning pace and if testing goes well we can get a result which shows what we can do on a European stage. That's important as we look towards GP2, the Formula 1 feeder series, for next year."

The weekend's two Formula 3 races take place on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
