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. In 2017 they scored three BRDC British F3 race wins with Jordan Cane, who claimed eighth place in the overall standings despite missing the first six races of the season while he waited to turn 16. The team created history in 2018, powering Jamie Chadwick to the first ever female race win in British F3 history at Brands Hatch.
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, and the Rookie Championship with Kiern Jewiss in 2017.
“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 have enjoyed a very successful few seasons with many race wins.”
