BRDC British F3 Championship race-winner Ayrton Simmons returns to the UK’s leading single-seater series with Chris Dittmann Racing (CDR) for a one-off appearance at Brands Hatch this weekend (29-30 August).
Simmons, whose main focus for 2020 has been the Euroformula Open, finished third in the championship for CDR last season, claiming three race victories and a further seven podium finishes along the way. His performances for the Tewkesbury-based team last season led to a nomination for the prestigious Aston Martin Autosport BRDC Young Driver Award.
Simmons will partner Josh Skelton in this weekend’s four races, as part of a revised race weekend format on the legendary Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit. Nico Varrone has left the team following the season’s opening two rounds.
Simmons played a significant role in the team’s success at the same venue last season, finishing second in a 1-2 finish for CDR as Nazim Azman claimed a first career win, and will provide an excellent benchmark for Skelton, who will be aiming to build on a first podium in British F3 last time out at Donington Park.
