Douglas Motorsport has confirmed that Australian rising star Tommy Smith has joined the team to compete in selected events over the remainder of the 2021 GB3 Championship season.
Smith’s GB3 stint with the team will start at Snetterton this weekend (7/8 August), joining Reema Juffali in a two-car entry for the Northamptonshire squad.
The 19-year-old is an exciting young prospect, having shown great potential during his single-seater career so far. Starting as a podium-finisher in New Zealand Formula Ford, he went on to compete in Australian Formula 4 and the Toyota Racing Series.
After two campaigns in the Asian F3 Championship, the Melbourne racer unfortunately had to sit out the 2020 season due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, but has made a welcome return to action this season in the Formula Regional European Championship.
Smith is the latest young Aussie talent to compete with Douglas Motorsport. Thomas Randle contested the 2016 BRDC British F3 Championship with the team, scoring seven podiums including two race wins, while Joey Mawson took three podiums in three races in the 2016 Autumn Trophy.
