Camren Kaminsky is to step up to the British Formula 3 International Series this year with Double R Racing.
Managed by MB Partners and under the guide of former Formula One driver Mark Blundell, the young American racer took 8th overall in the British Formula Ford Championship last year, claiming a single victory with JTR.
Kaminsky will be racing alongside the already confirmed Andy Chang at the Woking-based squad. Following a brief tenure in karting, Kaminsky made his car-racing début in 2012 in the Pacific Formula 2000 championship, where he took five podiums on his way to the runner-up in the standings.
The Arizona native certainly left a positive impression upon the mind of Double R team principal, Anthony Hieatt. “Camren really is a fantastic young prospect and we’re thrilled he’s signed with Double R for the new British F3 season,” said Hieatt.
Naturally, Kaminsky’s fast rise up the motorsport ranks could prove tricky, but it is an element already factored by Hieatt. “The step from Formula Ford to F3 is still big, even though Ford now has slicks and wings, but I’m confident from what I saw of Camren last year he’ll be a very capable, very quick young driver. He certainly has a lot of potential.”
Alongside his Formula 3 commitments, Kaminsky is also competing in the MRF Challenge against more experienced talent such as Tio Ellinas, Arthur Pic, Harry Tincknell and Rupert Svendsen-Cook. Kaminsky currently lies 14th in points, with the final round set to take place in Chennai next week.
