Tom Blomqvist joins F3 Euro Series field for 2012

The 18-year-old son of former World Rally Champion Stig Blomqvist will race a Volkswagen-engined Dallara F312 for ma-con Motorsport alongside his fellow Briton Emil Bernstorff.

Blomqvist, who became the youngest champion in the history of Formula Renault UK in 2010, spent last year driving last-generation F3 machinery for Performance Racing in German F3, but had his season cut-short by a back-breaking accident at Lausitz.

The signing of the two-time McLaren AUTOSPORT BRDC Award finalist takes the full-time entry list for the Euro Series up to 15 drivers ahead of this weekend's season-opener at Hockenheim.

Included in the full-time list are four cars from reigning champion outfit Prema, two for Mucke Motorsport and two for Carlin.
