Jack Doohan will race in the F3 Asian Championship in 2019 alongside a drive in Euroformula Open.

The 16-year-old has signed on with Dragon Hitech GP for the former, the same team with which he ran in the final round of the Asian Winter Series last month.

On that weekend, his first racing in Formula 3, Doohan picked up two podiums.

“I’m very pleased to be working with such a high standard team for this year’s Asian F3 season,” said the Red Bull junior.

“After competing in the final round of the Winter Series, I now feel I’m fully comfortable with the car and team to take it to the next level for the main series.

“I get along very well with the team which makes it even more enjoyable being at the circuit.

“I’ll be doing my best to push to the maximum as I know Hitech will be doing the same for me and hopefully we can come away with a top result.”

Team Manager, Phil Blow added, “We’re really pleased to announce Jack as our first signing for the main Asian F3 Championship.

“He did a fantastic job in Sepang jumping in for the last round, making steady progress and taking away two podiums whilst fighting for victory on his debut in the series.

“He showed great maturity against some vastly experienced drivers despite having to miss the first two rounds ‘til he turned 16.

“More than that he is a great guy who fitted in really well with the team so we are really looking forward to mounting another championship challenge.”

Doohan’s drive in Euroformula Open is with Double R Racing, with the move to race in multiple series mimicking his 2018 season of British Formula 4 and selected German and Italian F4 rounds.

The 2019 F3 Asian Championship Certified by FIA starts at Sepang on April 6-7.
