Lanan Racing has confirmed that Josh Mason will return to the team for a second full season in the BRDC British F3 Championship in 2020.
The 17-year-old British driver has made excellent progress in his first full season of single-seater racing this year, and heads to the final BRDC British F3 weekend of the season at Donington Park just outside the championship top 10.
Mason’s strong season has seen him secure an excellent victory at Donington Park in June, as well as a second place finish at Spa Francorchamps and a third on the Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit. Those podium finishes have been backed up by six additional top-10 results to put him 11th overall in the championship standings.
Mason’s return continues a partnership with Lanan Racing that has spanned over two years, with the young Brit undertaking testing in F4 and then F3 machinery with the team before making selected appearances in British F3 in 2018. Continuing into a full season in 2019, Mason has made clear progress, especially with qualifying in recent rounds.
His progress has further been demonstrated with a strong showing in the MRF Challenge Formula 2000 Championship, where he sits third overall in the championship standings with four podiums from nine races so far.
