Positive FIA Formula 3 Championship test for Hoggard and Hitech GP

Positive FIA Formula 3 Championship test for Hoggard and Hitech GP

11.11.2021: FIA Formula 3 Championship racer Johnathan Hoggard returned to the track last week for three days of official post-season testing, joining British team Hitech GP at Circuit Ricardo Tormo, just outside of Valencia in Spain.

FIA Formula 3 Championship racer Johnathan Hoggard returned to the track last week for three days of official post-season testing, joining British team Hitech GP at Circuit Ricardo Tormo, just outside of Valencia in Spain.
 


After finishing the 2021 season with two sixth place finishes in the final three race weekends, despite suffering bad luck when race two at Sochi was cancelled when he was due to start from pole position, the Spalding-based 20-year-old relished the opportunity to return to action, this time with a team which he has raced against in both FIA Formula 3 and what was then known as the BRDC British F3 Championship.
 


While the test, which provides both teams and drivers the chance to evaluate fresh options, was a chance for some competitors to push for ultimate lap times and try to finish near the top of the leader boards, Johnathan’s experience and ability meant that his role with Hitech was to try new parts and settings, developing the car ahead of next season, rather than simply trying to go quickly.
 


There was a shot at a flying lap on the final day for Johnathan, who is a member of Motorsport UK's Team UK and the prestigious BRDC SuperStars programme, but red flags and increasing track temperatures thereafter thwarted his attempts. However, he and the team finished pleased with the progress made ahead of next season’s campaign.
 


Johnathan, who was backed during his 2021 campaign by Travel Planet – which specialises in providing travel management services to medium and large public and private sector organisations, is now evaluating options for the 2022 campaign and will make announcement his plans in due course.






Johnathan Hoggard

 
“It was a good experience and I enjoyed being at the test with Hitech GP. It was a good three days learning and helping the team to really move forward and possibly finding some things that I liked as well. I know some of the Hitech crew from when they've been with previous teams and I've worked with a couple of them before as well, so I got on well with them, which was nice.
 


“We were mainly focused on development work, trying new bits out, and seeing how they affect the car and if they worked or not. There were a couple of issues mainly on the last day with red flags when we were doing our second new tyre run, which kind of ruined it and then the track temperature was too high then to set a representative lap time.

“It was a little bit difficult, in that respect, but we were focusing more on how we can improve the car and the feeling of the car, rather than solely on the lap times, and I thought it went well. I was happy that I was able to find some things that I enjoyed, and I think the team were happy with getting to try what they wanted to.
 


“Kaylen [Frederick] and I were mainly trying different bits on the car and really using the data that were available to look at and see what improved for the team. It was useful having good data and good references alongside myself.
 


“I've raced against Kaylen in British F3 in 2019 and again this year, and I get on with him well, and it was my first time sharing a team with Isack [Hadjar]. Everyone worked well with the team, and we got what we needed to get done.”






About Johnathan Hoggard
 


Johnathan was a star in karting, recording excellent results despite prioritising his education during his formative years. He made his debut in the F4 British Championship in 2017, recording a podium at Silverstone on just his ninth ever car race and followed that up with eight wins and finished third in the championship standings.
 


Moving to the BRDC British F3 Championship in 2019 he claimed seven wins and 12 podiums as he became Vice-Champion, while his performances in the series earned him a drive at the 2020 Rolex 24 At Daytona as part of the Sunoco Whelen Challenge.
 


That year was memorable for another reason too, as he was awarded the prestigious Aston Martin Autosport BRDC Award against tough opposition, earning him time behind the wheel of Red Bull Racing’s title winning RB8 at Silverstone.
 


He impressed while in the States, taking part in the ‘Roar before the 24’ in LMP2 but, when the car was withdrawn, moved to a Lamborghini Huracan GT3 Evo, taking it all in his stride despite sustaining a painful knee injury during driver change practice the afternoon before the main race.
 


Johnathan joined Jenzer Motorsport after the opening rounds of the 2021 FIA Formula 3 Championship and impressed, taking two sixth place finishes despite missing out on pre-season testing.
