19 Dec Nicolai Kjaergaard Graduates to BRDC British F3!
17-year-old Kjaergaard tested the British F3 Tatuus-Cosworth at Snetterton in October and has now committed to the series for the season ahead. The Dane previously raced in the F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford for his inaugural season in single-seater cars finishing thirteenth overall and clinching the third-placed trophy in the Rookie Cup with his Fortec team. Prior to that, Kjaergaard enjoyed a successful karting career, competing in both European and world-level events.
The 2017 BRDC British Formula 3 Championship season gets underway on Easter Weekend at Oulton Park (15/17 April). The 24-race strong calendar will once again take place over eight event weekends across England and at the world-renown Spa-Francorchamps circuit in Belgium (see provisional calendar below).
Nicolai Kjaergaard, driver Fortec Motorsports BRDC British F3 team
“After a good first season in single seater cars with Fortec Motorsports in the British F4 championship it felt natural for me to stay with the team for another season. I hope to continue my development as a racing driver and get some great results during our 2017 British F3 campaign.”
Russell Dixon, team manager, Fortec Motorsports British F3
“I’m delighted that Nicolai Kjaergaard has moved up from our British F4 team to compete in BRDC F3 next year. Initially he did a one-off test at Anglesea in June, but was so impressed with the car’s performance he did three more days with us. During these tests his confidence grew and showed rapid progress. I’m confident that by the time we have completed all of the pre-season testing he will be very competitive during 2017 and be podium-hunting!”
