2010 British Formula Renault Champion, Tom Blomqvist was rewarded with a British F3 test with Litespeed as part of his prize for winning the Championship.

Heavy rain and cold weather did little to dampen the youngsters’ spirits after his prize test run. “It was very wet and really slippery,” said Blomqvist, the son of rally legend Stig. “Tough but fun sums up the day. I was lucky enough to have already had a run with Litespeed in the dry, at Silverstone, so I knew what to expect from the car at least.” Essex-based Tom, who turns 17 at the end of the month, hopes to be on the 2011 British F3 grid but says “nothing is sorted yet…” His best time of the day from the three sessions he completed was 1m 35.630s.
