Harry Tincknell to make one-off return to F3 at Thruxton

Tincknell, who finished fifth in European F3 in 2013, has switched to sportscars this season and will contest the European Le Mans Series with Jota.

But he has agreed to race a third Double R car alongside full-season drivers Camren Kaminsky and Andy Chang for the August 16-17 Thruxton event.

Macau Grand Prix winner and new Red Bull junior Alex Lynn has already announced that he will also rejoin the F3 ranks for Thruxton.

Double R team boss Anthony 'Boyo' Hieatt said the Tincknell was further evidence of what a draw Thruxton was on its first British F3 appearance since 2010.

"Thruxton coming back onto the British F3 calendar is a big draw for racers like Harry, he's a top quality driver and we're absolutely over the moon he'll be racing in Double R colours there," said Hieatt.

"It's also going to be a fantastic opportunity for Camren and Andy to work with a multiple race winner who has experience from European F3 as well."
