English Formula Four title challenger James Pull will make his BRDC British Formula Three Championship debut at the Donington Park season finale on 10-11 September with Carlin.

Pull, who was born in Singapore but lives in England and contends under the British banner, is a numerous podium finisher in the F4 British Championship and is as of now right in the title fight, sitting in fourth place only 22 points off top spot with three rounds to go. It is Pull’s second year in the series, having contended with Joe Tandy Racing in 2015 before changing to Carlin for the current year.

The Donington Park round will be Pull’s first time in British F3 but he as of now has experience in the driver’s seat of the series, as he tried the Tatuus-Cosworth with Fortec Motorsports at Snetterton in October a year ago.

“It will be a test yet I’m prepared for it,” Pull said.

“I have done some testing in an F3 auto and my times have been great so I’m eager to get this chance to race. Donington Park is my most loved track so that is a special reward for me. On the off chance that I can get several great results I’ll demonstrate my potential for next season.”

Pull started karting in September 2008 at eight-years-old and immediately did well, winning the KKS AAM Malaysian Karting Series the following year. His prosperity proceeded in Asia before he started to contend in both European and world-level karting occasions, finishing eighth in the KFJ class of the 2013 CIK-FIA International Super Cup and scoring different podium finishes in the WSK Super Masters Series.

He then graduated to single-seaters for 2015, contesting the MSA Formula where he took four podiums to finish tenth overall before moving to Carlin for 2016.

“We are charmed to welcome James to the British Formula 3 group set up of Lando who can’t be with us,” Carlin’s Trevor Carlin said.

We’ve watched James create and drive well through the span of the season in Formula Four and we’re satisfied to give him the chance to race with us at Donington in the BRDC British Formula 3.”
