“British F3 release season highlights reel”

As the year-end draws closer, SRO became the latest promoter to release a highlights reel of the 2012 season with a small feature remembering Cooper Tyres British F3 championship.

Following a tense three-way battle with Jazeman Jaafar and Felix Serralles (note 1}, the series was eventually won by Britain’s Jack Harvey {note 2} under the darkening skies at Donington Park.

Along the way, the leading trio saw off challenges from the likes of Alex Lynn and Carlos Sainz Jr during a campaign that visited circuits such as Brands Hatch, Pau, Silverstone, Monza, Spa-Francorchamps and Norisring amongst others.

Originally shown at the SRO Awards Ceremony at the start of November, the clip runs through a number of the highlights – and lowlights {note 3} – of the 2012 British F3 season.

As previously reported on this and a number of other sites, Fortec have now confirmed that Felix Serralles and British F3 teammate Pipo Derani are to move to the FIA European F3 Championship full-time in 2013, alongside two other yet-to-be-confirmed pilots. Serralles and Derani will also be competing in next year’s Toyota Racing Series. The team have still not fully revealed their British F3 intentions, but have ensured that they will have at least some presence in the category.

It was also confirmed in the last few week that Jack Harvey is set to join the GP3 Series with Lotus-ART. Harvey joins ex-Formula Ford racer Eric Lichtenstein who is to compete with Carlin and Samin Gómez Briceno who will be piloting one of the Jenzer Motorsport entries.

It would have been nicer to have less focus on the accidents; alas, that tends to be the nature of these reels, irrespective of the championship on show.
