Exeter's Harry Tincknell has been rewarded for an impressive season by securing a place in the British Formula Three International Series.

Tincknell finished fifth in last year's Formula Renault UK Championship, winning at Rockingham and Snetterton.

The 19-year-old, who will race with Fortec Motorsports, said: "This is the next step on an exciting ladder.

"It's one step closer to GP2 and Formula One - it's a Championship that people really take notice of."

Tincknell is part of UK Motorsport's elite driver development scheme, a scheme which helps young talent progress in the sport.

Fortec Motorsports owner Richard Dutton said: "I'm delighted that Harry has signed for Fortec.

"Having watched him over the last couple of years his progress has been outstanding and we look forward to a successful year ahead in Formula Three."
