Riccardo Brutschin18-year-old German racer Riccardo Brutschin, who is the reigning ATS Formula 3 – Trophy Class Champion, has secured a seat with Performance Racing to compete in the 2011 German ATS Formula 3 Cup.

2009 marked the dawn of Riccardo’s car racing career as he looked to develop experience and understanding in the ADAC Formula Masters series. He first tasted Formula 3 when he tested at the end of 2009, before making his Formula 3 race debut the following season, by entering the Trophy category of the German F3 series. To date Riccardo scored an impressive 12 wins from 29 race starts during his short but successful single-seater career.

The step-up from the Trophy class to the main class will provide an important challenge and Riccardo is working hard to ensure he is ready for the next step in his career. An off-season training programme has allowed him to fully prepare himself, both mentally and physically for the upcoming season.

Performance Racing first tested Riccardo in 2009; the team are confident he will rapidly develop during 2011 and will emerge as a regular contender for podium places. Riccardo will race alongside reigning British Formula Renault Champion Tom Blomqvist.

Riccardo Brutschin- career to date:
2010 – ATS Formula 3 Trophy Class CHAMPION
15 races. 12 wins. 15 pole positions. 15 podiums. 14 fastest laps.
