22 / 23 May
Reece Ushijima will contest his second season in the BRDC British Formula 3 Championship in 2021. He remains with Hitech GP, the team with which he made his debut in the series last year.
The California-born driver finished 11th in the final 2020 BRDC British F3 standings, after joining the championship just ahead of its delayed start last summer. Ushijima achieved a best result of second place, finishing as runner-up twice in total, and was a frequent contender in the top ten.
Earlier this year, the 18-year-old raced in the FIA Asian F3 Championship with the same team, claiming a pair of Rookie Class wins. Prior to racing in F3 with Hitech, Ushijima raced in Formula Ford 1600 and the Asian-based MRF Challenge in 2019.
Ushijima joins an expanded, three-car Hitech GP line-up for 2021, the team's second year in the UK's leading single-seater championship, following the earlier announcements of Bart Horsten and Sebastian Alvarez.
