British racer Jake Dennis is the latest driver to be confirmed for Carlin’s 2014 assault on the FIA Formula 3 European Championship. The 18-year-old, who is backed by the Racing Steps Foundation, became the 2012 Formula Renault 2.0 NEC Champion and has been given the prestigious McLaren Autosport BRDC award. Dennis moved to the Formula Renault Eurocup 2.0 Championship for the 2013 season and finished fourth overall.
Speaking of his upcoming season and his hopes for a strong rookie year, Dennis says, “I can’t wait for the season to start so that I can get out in the Formula 3 car. The championship is very competitive and there is so much to learn and while it will be a big challenge I’m glad to be undertaking it with Carlin as I think we can be strong together.”
Team principal Trevor Carlin adds, “We’re very happy to welcome Jake to our Formula 3 team for the 2014 season, he has a good reputation and I’m sure his talent will shine through over the course of the upcoming year. We’re very proud to be working again with the Racing Steps Foundation, which is a fabulous initiative from Graham Sharp. We’ve created two vice champions and a British F3 champion together previously and we will be doing our upmost again for Jake at this important point in his career.”
