Hillspeed with Cliff Dempsey Racing has today (28 March) completed its 2017 BRDC British Formula 3 Championship line-up by signing German driver Nick Worm. The 16-year-old joins Brit Jordan Cane and American Chase Owen at the Hathersage-based outfit, which will field a capacity three-car team for the upcoming season.
Worm will be making his single-seater debut as he graduates to BRDC British Formula 3 in 2017, the UK’s leading single-seater championship. He has enjoyed a successful karting career in his native Germany before making his car racing debut in the Audi Sport TT Cup in October last year. The Solingen-born teenager is mentored by Porsche Junior coach Sascha Maassen and has already experienced the Tatuus-Cosworth British F3 car, having tested with the Hillspeed team at a number of UK and European circuits over the past three months.
During his maiden season in single-seaters, Worm will also be promoting the 'Keep Fighting' foundation which was established by the family of seven-time FIA Formula One World Champion Michael Schumacher following his life-changing skiiing accident in 2013.
Worm said: “I am so happy to be racing in BRDC British Formula 3 this year. It's a huge step in my career, we know that, but I have a great team around me and I know the guys at Hillspeed with Cliff Dempsey Racing will give me all the support I need.
"Through my racing this year, I also want to help try and promote the amazing 'Keep Fighting' initiative. Michael Schumacher has always been my idol and I want to take the opportunity to wish him well with his recovery - Keep Fighting Michael!"
