Jack Doohan will race Formula 3 machinery in the Euroformula Open championship this year.

The Red Bull junior has signed with Double R Racing for the nine-round season, having taken podiums in his first F3 start in the Asian Winter Series last month.

“I’m really excited and fortunate to be racing in this year’s Euroformula Open championship as a rookie,” said Doohan.

“It has proved to bring some very strong drivers through the ranks and is looking to be pretty competitive this season, so I’ll be giving it everything I’ve got to come out on top.

“Double R is a very well-known and successful team which I am very lucky to be working with this year.

“I completed two tests with Double R at the end of last year to learn more about the car and team, which went quite well, so I’m looking forward to getting the season underway.”

Now 16 years old, Doohan won the Rookie Cup in British F4 last year and also raced in select rounds of the German and Italian Formula 4 championships.

Round 1 of Euroformula Open takes place at Paul Ricard on April 27-28.
