Formula BMW Europe runner-up Jack Harvey has signed with British Formula 3 squad Carlin for next season.
The Racing Steps Foundation driver narrowly missed out on the final FBMW Europe crown at Monza earlier this month after scoring seven race wins for Fortec Motorsport. He will now race for Carlin in F3, following in the footsteps of fellow RSF driver James Calado.
"Carlin's history speaks for itself, it's probably the best team in F3," said the 17-year-old. "All you can ask for as a driver is to be part of a good team so I want to thank the RSF for their support and for putting me with Carlin.
"The step up to F3 from FBMW is probably the largest of my career, but I know Carlin give drivers such a good package that we will be competitive from the start."
Team boss Trevor Carlin, who ran Jean-Eric Vergne to this year's British F3 title, said: "We're delighted and very proud that RSF has once again chosen Carlin as the team to look after one of their most promising youngsters.
"Next year will be very much a learning curve for him, but we've no doubt that Jack has the natural talent to be able to adapt very quickly."
