Reece Ushijima will be one of Van Amersfoort Racing drivers in the upcoming Formula 3 season.
In 2021, Ushijima drove for Hitech GP in the GB3 Championship and the Asian F3, where he finished 4th and 12th in the standings respectively.
“To be racing with such an experienced and successful team as Van Amersfoort Racing is a great privilege. Seeing how motivated and hardworking they were during post-season testing at Valencia has made me really excited to what we can achieve this year,” Ushijima said.
“It may be an uphill battle, as it is both the team’s and my first year competing in the FIA F3, but I believe we can achieve something special with our combined determination. I cannot wait to get the season started!”
The Van Amersfoort Racing CEO Rob Niessink also reacted to the announcement: “We first worked with Reece during post-season testing at Valencia last year and he impressed us. It will be both his and our first season in this car, so for sure there is lots to be learned, but Reece’s determination excites us.
“His interaction with the team was impressive and he showed to be a quick learner. The level of progress he booked during the two days he tested with us is a clear indicator of his potential. We have been preparing our entry into this category to the finest detail and are absolutely thrilled to get going early next month!”
