Harry Tincknell third fastest overall in first Euro F3 test days

The first official test days for the upcoming FIA Formula 3 European Championships were held last week on the 8 & 9 March in Barcelona.

Harry Tincknell finished third fastest overall (the final result combining test times from the two days).

Harry-Tincknell-PortraitReacting to the two days, Harry said:

“We had a big test program to go through in Barcelona and it was definitely a positive test. It’s hard to know where you are until the first race but it was certainly encouraging to be third fastest overall over the two days.”
