Randle to Pilot LMP3
Hot on the heels of the announcement that Douglas Motorsport will be running in the inaugural Prototype Cup, we are pleased to announce that Thomas Randle will partner Mike Newbould in the Ligier JS P3 LMP3 car at Snetterton on 8th and 9th of October.
Successful 2016 Season
Thomas Randle enjoyed a successful debut season with Douglas Motorsport, finishing 4th overall in the British F3 championship. One of the highlights of the season was Randle’s win at Spa-Francorchamps when he came from 9th on the grid to take the lead on the final lap and win the race. His win consisted of an impressive multiple overtake and bump draft maneouvre through Eau-Rouge.
The Douglas Motorsport expansion into LMP3 and the Prototype Cup confirms the team as leaders in driver development. We are already successful in Ginetta Junior, Ginetta GT4 and British F3, and the move into LMP3 adds another level of progression for young drivers within the team. LMP3 is a suitable next step for drivers who come through the various Ginetta series and also for drivers coming from single seater series. It marks an exciting new phase for the team.
