South African racer Callan O’Keeffe will join Douglas Motorsport for the 2017 BRDC British Formula 3 Championship season, it has been confirmed today (27 February).
O’Keeffe said: “I’m absolutely ecstatic to be back racing again. It’s a great championship and car so we should be set for an exciting year. It’s taken a lot of hard work to make this drive happen and I really have to say thank you to a few key individuals from South Africa who have helped enormously. Douglas Motorsport is a great team and I already feel really at home there. The hard work has begun and we will be doing everything we can to make sure that we get the South African flag flying above the podium this season.”
Wayne Douglas, Team Principal of Douglas Motorsport, commented: “It is fantastic to be able to welcome Callan to our team for the 2017 BRDC British Formula 3 season. He showed his talent and speed during last year’s Autumn Trophy and I am confident he will hit the ground running at Oulton Park
