Run by McLaren Autosport BRDC finalist and former British Formula Vauxhall Champion Wayne Douglas, the squad has more than 20 years experience of helping top karting drivers step up into car racing championships through their respected driver development programme – many going on to win in premier race series such as Formula Renault, GP3 and Formula 3.
Douglas Motorsport has enjoyed plenty of success in the previously named BRDC Formula 4 Championship, narrowly missing out on the 2015 Autumn Trophy title with Harrison Scott and the 2016 title with Joey Mawson. The team took two victories, three pole positions and four other podium finishes in the eight-race series and claimed the honour of winning the first-ever race with the new Tatuus-Cosworth car.
The team has enjoyed plenty of prior success in the championship too, running Matty Graham to the 2013 Winter Championship with three race wins and enjoyed a strong 2014 campaign with Diego Menchaca securing a victory at Snetterton.
Douglas Motorsport is also one of the most successful Ginetta Junior teams and in 2012 won the teams’ championship with drivers Niall Murray and Andrew Watson collectively securing a remarkable six wins, 19 podiums and five lap records. More recently, the Corby-based outfit won the 2015 Winter Series with Stuart Middleton, taking three wins from the four races.
“We’ve had a great time in BRDC F4 having ran cars all three years, including winning the 2013 Winter Championship and narrowly missing out on the 2015 Autumn Trophy title with the new Tatuus-Cosworth. As a former racer myself, we are a one-stop shop for aspiring single-seater drivers as we run in-house training. BRDC British Formula 3 is a superb platform for this as the cars are all equal and respond superbly to changes, and Douglas Motorsport has shown that we have got to grips with the new Tatuus-Cosworth quickly and we enjoyed a very successful 2016.”
