Dual Danish-American national Benjamin Pedersen has been confirmed as Double R Racing’s first driver signing for the 2020 BRDC British Formula 3 Championship.
The 20-year-old debuted in British F3 last season and became a race winner during round eight at the Silverstone Grand Prix Circuit with a superb drive. He was also a podium finisher at the Snetterton 300 Circuit in Norfolk.
Additionally, Pedersen dovetailed his British F3 campaign with a part-season in the F3 Americas Championship where he secured the runner-up position despite missing six races. Along the way he claimed seven victories, 11 podiums and three pole positions.
Now joining multiple British F3 title winners Double R for his sophomore campaign in British F3, Pedersen – who is backed by DirtFish Rally School, Bell Helmets, The Heart of Racing, Giving Tech Labs and Global Racing Group – is confident of mounting a major bid for title honours and especially with a full year of experience under his belt.
Making his car racing debut in 2016 in the F4 United States Championship, Pedersen ended the season inside the top 10 of the driver standings. Returning the following year, he improved to fourth overall in the championship with three race wins and six podiums.
In 2018 Pedersen graduated to Formula 3 in the F3 Americas Championship powered by Honda, where he charged to third in the standings with 10 podiums. He combined his season’s racing with continued participation in F4 in the USA, concluding the year fifth overall with a pair of victories.
