Sasakorn Chaimongkol

Multiple podium finisher Sasakorn ‘Cutter’ Chaimongkol has been confirmed as Hillspeed’s first signing for the 2019 BRDC British Formula 3 Championship, with the Derbyshire squad elated to retain the exciting Thai racer to spearhead its assault for the new campaign.

Chaimongkol, who ended his maiden season in Formula 3 as the top ‘Rookie’ driver last year, and a very strong ninth in the overall championship with the Hathersage team, is relishing being back for his sophomore season in the highly competitive category. His return is backed by a new international sponsor for 2019, which is set to be revealed in March.

Having progressed through Hillspeed’s successful driver development programme, first joining the squad a couple of years ago with a structured testing schedule prior to his race debut in the 2016 BRDC British F3 Autumn Trophy, the 20-year-old has established himself as a very promising talent.

Along with impressing as the top ‘Rookie’ last year in his first full season of car racing, Chaimongkol took two outright podium finishes, including a sensational season-best second position at the legendary Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium during round 14.

Notably, highlighting the Thai’s consistency on track and Hillspeed’s strong reliability, Chaimongkol scored points in each of the 23 races contested in 2018 and it is that partnership which should shine very brightly during the coming season.
