Race-winning BRDC British Formula 3 Championship driver Sasakorn ‘Cutter’ Chaimongkol has today (Wednesday) finalised a deal with Hillspeed to remain with the squad for the delayed 2020 season.
The 20-year-old Thai, who resides in Nottingham, won his first race in the championship with the Markham Vale-based team last year.
The Bangkok-born racer can look forward to his third full season in car racing thanks to the continued backing of long-term sponsors MAXIMA Motorsport, MAXIMA Motor Oil and Chiratec.
One of the consequences of the COVID-19 situation, added to budget restrictions earlier in the year, has been a distinct lack of testing for Chaimongkol. In actuality, he hasn’t climbed behind the wheel of a race car since the end of the 2019 season. His first run in the upgraded and re-profiled Tatuus BF3-020 car which will be raced during the rescheduled 24-round campaign will only come during the practice session before the opening event of the season at Oulton Park, which takes place on 1-2 August.
