British Formula 4 Challenge Cup runner-up Harry Webb will step up to BRDC British Formula 3 this season with Chris Dittmann Racing.
Webb finished second to Hampus Ericsson in the British F4 Challenge Cup last year, his first in cars, and was 11th overall in the standings. He also gained experience in pick-up truck racing and Formula Vee.
Before stepping up to cars he was one of Britain’s top karters, winning the Rotax Euro Challenge at a junior and senior level, as well as three Rotax Max titles.
He has been testing for CDR since last year, and is the 15th driver confirmed to join the 2018 British F3 grid.
?I?m really pleased to be joining the BRDC British F3 championship with Chris Dittmann Racing,” Webb said.
“Chris and his guys run a very efficient team with brilliantly prepared cars, and this is the perfect environment for me to take the next step up in my career.
“Budget constraints have limited our running so far, but with some extra backing I?m really confident we can be fighting towards the front of the field throughout the season.?
Team boss Chris Dittmann commented:??We are ecstatic to secure a deal with Harry Webb for the 2018 BRDC British F3 season.
“His karting record speaks for itself and he?s shown very well in all the car racing categories he has competed in so far.
“We really look forward to working with him to further aid his development and I?m very confident of strong results with Harry as the year goes on.?
CDR ran Omar Ismail, Tristan Charpentier and Jeremy Wahome on a part-time basis last year, with Ismail getting the team’s best result with a singular podium at Rockingham.
The team last won a race in 2015 when the championship ran as BRDC British F4, when Ismail and Tom Jackson won three times between them.
