P1 Sport will enter the UK’s premier single-seater category, the BRDC British Formula 3 Championship from 2016 onwards.
The team, which is led by vastly experienced motorsport professional Roly Vincini, will race in BRDC British F3 as Vincini returns to front line motorsport having stepped back from his Formula Renault 3.5 commitments in 2013, and believes that British Formula 3 is the perfect championship in which to do so.
Vincini is no stranger to the British Formula 3 category, having entered the championship in 1992 running the P1 Racing banner. After a hiatus, the team returned in 2003 as P1 Motorsport and ran Adam Carroll to five victories the following year, as the Northern Irishman finished as runner-up to Nelson Piquet Jr. The Norfolk-based outfit tasted Formula Renault 3.5 glory in 2008 with Giedo van der Garde before Vincini took a break from racing, but he will now return to motorsport in next year’s BRDC British F3 Championship with P1 Sport.
"It is great to announce a return to front line motorsport and we think the BRDC British F3 Championship is the perfect category in which to do so. We've been extremely successful in single-seaters, most notably in Formula Renault 3.5, and we can't wait to get out on track and continue that form in the UK's leading single-seater series."
