2020 BRDC British F3 Championship – Ulysse De Pauw returns to Douglas Motorsport

Posted by

Douglas Motorsport and Ulysse De Pauw will continue their blossoming partnership in 2020, with the Belgian ace returning to the team for a second season in the BRDC British F3 Championship.

After finishing third overall in the French F4 Championship during his maiden year of single-seater racing in 2018, the Belgian racer graduated to British F3 last year and kicked off a competitive campaign with an impressive fourth-place finish in the opening race. Establishing himself as a regular top-six contender throughout the season, the 18-year-old enjoyed two standout podium results in the second half of the season. A breakthrough second place at Donington Park was followed by a third at Brands Hatch, helping him to seventh in the final points standings.

De Pauw, who races with the support of a loyal group of partners including AutoTrends Magazine and DRM Motorsport, is Douglas Motorsport’s third confirmed driver for the 2020 season, joining Kiern Jewiss and Manaf Hijjawi at the Corby-based squad.

Team Principal Wayne Douglas commented: “Everyone at Douglas Motorsport is really pleased to be welcoming Ulysse back for a second season in the BRDC British F3 Championship. Alongside Kiern and Manaf, we feel we have a great line-up for the year ahead. Ulysse made fantastic progression across the 2019 campaign and richly deserved his two podium finishes. He ended the year in a strong position and with a good pre-season testing programme under his belt, he’ll certainly be one to watch when the season starts.”

Ulysse De Pauw added: “I’m very happy to be back for a second season with Douglas Motorsport. After signing with the team quite late in 2019, I wasn’t fully ready for the start of the season however I felt I improved a lot during the year thanks to the team and our speed was very good by the end. I can’t wait to start 2020. I am confident that the package from Douglas Motorsport will be one to watch closely! I would like to thank everyone involved that’s made it happen, as I wouldn’t be here without the support I’ve got.”
