“FIA F3: Signature add first driver to Renault programme”

February 21, 2014

Signature Racing yesterday unveiled Óscar Tunjo as the first driver to lead their highly anticipated return to international Formula 3 competition.

The Colombian Tunjo comes to Formula 3 with some pedigree, having started car racing (and finishing as runner-up) in he Formula BMW Pacific Series at just 14-years of age.

Now 18, Tunjo have since competed in the Eurocup Formula Renault Series, the Formula Renault NEC and the Formula Renault Alps Series, with a best overall result of 4th in the latter (2012).
Following his good run in the Alps Series, Tunjo became part of the Lotus F1 junior team two years ago.

Tunjo’s move to Formula 3 with Signature is something of a leap of faith for the teenager. Not only will this be Signature’s return to the category, but it is also Renault’s return to F3 as an engine manufacturer, with a power unit built and maintained by French engineering company Oreca.
