#12

Ayrton Simmons has confirmed he will return to the BRDC British F3 Championship in 2019, joining the Chris Dittmann Racing team with whom he contested selected rounds last year.

The all-time highest points scorer in British F4 history competed in British F3 at Spa Francorchamps, Donington Park and Silverstone in 2018, making an immediate impression with fourth on the grid at the legendary Belgian circuit, just 0.142s off pole position despite no testing beforehand. He went even better at Donington Park with third on the grid, while race results were also very strong with a best of fourth at Spa in a supremely competitive field. 

The 17-year-old’s excellent debut performances came in a year where he claimed the runner-up spot in the F4 British Championship, taking four wins along the way including a double at the opening round at Brands Hatch, and eight further podiums. 

His single-seater career started in 2016, when he was vice-champion of the British F4 Rookie Cup, despite missing the first six races. His first full season came in 2017 where he was placed seventh overall with a maiden victory at Brands Hatch and five additional podium finishes. This followed a strong karting career that saw him win the Copa Iberica and Rotax World Finals in 2012.
