AFTER taking his maiden round win in the Forpark National Formula 3 class at Sydney three weeks ago, Todd Hazelwood is more than ready to jump back in the Formula 3 for the fifth round of the Australian Formula 3 Drivers Championship.

Despite never having raced at the Ipswich circuit, Hazelwood is confident he can once again produce strong results in the Forpark National class at Queensland Raceway this weekend.

“I’m hoping to add another strong result to my debut Formula 3 season this weekend at Queensland,” Hazelwood said.

“My rivals have past-experience at the track, but we have proven this year that we are fast straight out of the gate and can challenge for the win by the end of the weekend.

“The track looks fast and challenging and I am looking forward to racing around the technical circuit for the first time.”

Todd Hazelwood is currently second in the Forpark National class, hoping to close the gap on the championship leader.

Australian F3 Driver on the Road to Recovery

Fiasco Sports, Formula 3 Australian Drivers Championship

Despite being involved in a monstrous crash at Hidden Valley in Darwin a few weeks ago, Steel Guiliana will be racing his Formula 3 at Sydney Motorsport Park this weekend. 

Australian Formula 3 driver Steel Guiliana is set to race at this weekend’s round of the championship at Sydney Motorsport Park despite being involved in a crash at Hidden Valley a few weeks ago.

The 22-year-old endured the effects of a high impact crash at turn one, hitting the tyre barriers at the end of the 1.2km straight reaching speeds of 230 k/ph.

Fortunately Guiliana walked away unhurt due to the safety standards of the Formula 3 cars, however his car was too damaged to continue the rest of the round at Hidden Valley.

Guiliana climbed into Team BRM’s car for this weekend’s round of the championship at Sydney Motorsport Park, with the team at R-Tek Motorsport working tirelessly to prepare the car in a short period.

“The team have done a great job to turn this car around ready for Sydney and have been very supportive after my big accident,” said Guiliana.

“It certainly knocked me around but shortly after the race I felt fine and was keen to get back out there.”

“I hope we can have a strong return to the front at my home race and get our championship back on track.”

Guiliana will be racing at his home circuit this weekend, with the Sydney driver currently sixth in the Australian Formula 3 championship.

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.
