With Harry Tincknell in Monza for the start of the FIA Formula 3 European Championship which kicks off this weekend, we thought we’d share this short film from Harry’s team, Carlin Motorsport.

Harry Tincknell has extended his deal with multiple Championship winning team, Carlin Motorsport, for this season’s FIA European Formula 3 Championship. The five time Formula Three race winner will continue his relationship with the team and will be joined by Canadian racer Nicholas Latifi and British rookies Jann Mardenborough and Jordan King.
Tincknell will make the move to Europe following his 5th place finish in the 2012 British International Series, claiming four victories and nine podium finishes. The Devon-based Tipton St John racer has already tasted success on the continent, following a famous victory at last year’s European Championship event at the Norisring, Germany. He went on to end the season with a 9th place finish at the Macau Grand Prix, regarded as the Formula Three World Championship.
Looking forward to the season ahead, Tincknell said: “I’m delighted to have the opportunity to continue with Carlin Motorsport for the coming season. It will be the first time in my career where I have had the continuity of the same team and car for two years running and I aim to make the most of that. I learned a lot last year and have improved over the winter. I’m ready to mix it with the best guys in Europe and claim as many race wins as possible and hopefully the championship.”
Over the off season Tincknell has been put through a rigorous development program on a state of the art racing simulator in Holland, coupled with a demanding physical fitness schedule.
“I’ve been beating all the records in the simulator and I’ve been beating all my personal bests in the gym,” the 21 year old explained. “This is the most prepared that I have ever been and I can’t wait for pre-season testing to begin next week”.
Team boss Trevor Carlin commented: “I’m extremely pleased to have four such talented drivers with us for the season ahead. Harry makes an extremely welcome return to the team and his experience of F3 will be key. We have high hopes for him this season.”
