Spike Goddard to race in 2013 Formula 3 European Championship

The 20-year-old Australian won last year's British F3 National Class title for the team, taking 12 class victories in the process.

But with British F3 having been reduced to just a earlier this week, he has now switched series.

"I'm looking forward to the challenge of racing in Europe," said Goddard.

"We gelled as a team very early on last year so when it came to making my plans for 2013 it was a very simple choice for me.

"The new European championship will be tough but I think we are all up for the challenge."

Goddard, who currently lies 17th in the Toyota Racing Series mid-way through the New Zealand-based championship, will race a Nissan-engined Dallara F312.

Team principal Russell Eacott added: "Spike's right when he says it's going to be tough but I have no doubt that he will knuckle down and put in the work required to make this a successful campaign."
