Internationally experienced Australian Jordan Oon will step into the Australian Formula 3 Championship this season with Team BRM.
Oon, who finished fifth in the second-tier Copa class of the 2012 European F3 Open series, will line-up alongside BRM’s existing driver John Magro.
“My goal was to continue in Europe, but it was hard to secure a budget for anything higher than Formula 3,” said Ooon.
“It was either come back and race Australian Formula 3 or race in Asia, but the level here is higher. I didn’t want to take a step back from what I had last year.
“This is a great way to maintain my skills and build on what I had last year.”
BRM has won six of the last 11 Australian Formula 3 Championships.
The 2013 season will get underway as part of the Bathurst Motor Festival on March 29-31.
