SOUTH AUSTRALIAN Todd Hazelwood has had a great start to his rookie season in the Formula 3 Australian Driver’s Championship, and is looking to continue that form for the fourth round of the series held at Sydney Motorsport Park.
Hazelwood is yet to race at the circuit, but has tasted success in the state of New South Wales, becoming state champion a few years ago in his sprint karting career.
The Fujitsu Racing driver is currently second in the Forpark National Formula 3 Championship, and is looking forward to tasting more success and to get on the top step of the podium.
“After showing good pace at Darwin having never raced at Hidden Valley before, hopefully we can continue our strong form facing a new track again,” Hazelwood stated.
“The main goal for this round is to continue to collect strong championship points and remain consistent throughout the whole weekend.
“I’d love to have a win, but we have to be realistic and see how the racing goes.”
The teenager is looking forward to the great challenge to learn the grips of the circuit, as he believes it will be an exciting track in a Formula 3 race car.
“I can’t wait to test my ability on a great track, as the fast corners and fast braking is very demanding in a Formula 3.”
Todd Hazelwood will first hit the Sydney circuit on Friday (12 July) for practice.
