Dexter Patterson
 

Douglas Motorsport has announced its second driver for the 2021 BRDC British Formula 3 Championship, with the confirmation that former World Junior Karting Champion Dexter Patterson will join the grid.

The Scottish teenager joins the race-winning squad for what will be his second season in single-seater racing, following a fruitful karting career. The Glasgow-born racer initially enjoyed success in domestic karting competition, including winning multiple Scottish titles, the Formula Kart Stars Super Cadet, Kart Grand Prix Mini Max and the Super One IAME Cadet British Championships.

Patterson then moved to the global stage, with the crowning moment of his career to date being victory in the 2017 CIK-FIA Junior World Championship. He later added the WSK Super Masters Series OK crown to his resume. Patterson’s rise up the ranks caught the attention of the Sauber F1 team, which added him to its karting team in 2019 and has since supported his transition into car-racing as part of its driver academy.

The 17-year-old impressed 
with a pair of fourth place finishes during a one-off debut in the UAE Formula 4 Championship last January before contesting the Italian F4 Championship.
