“Hurst moves up to FIA F3 with West-Tec”

March 19, 2014

F3 Open race winner Hector Hurst is to move up to the FIA European F3 Championship this season with Team West-Tec.

Hurst’s confirmation with West-Tec continues a relationship that began toward the end of last season, when they competed together in the final round of the F3 Open season.

The 21-year-old finished the season 7th in points after taking a win and an additional podium, but while this new challenge is a step up, Hurst is keen. “This is a great opportunity for me. I was able to work with Team West-Tec towards the end of 2013 and really enjoyed it. The chance to compete in the FIA F3 with Team West-Tec is huge. I can’t wait to get in the car and start testing and for the season to begin.”
Hurst will be partnering Puerto Rico’s Felix Serralles and will be powered by Mercedes-Benz units.

With 29 entries confirmed for the European Championship, only Jo Zeller Racing has still to announce its driver for the season.
