After winning last year's British Formula Ford crown, the 21 year-old South Australian will compete in 2011 for Double R in the British-based F3 title.
In his first years of ‘wings and slicks' openwheel racing, he says that he will dedicate two years of his life to F3, but will need to have conquered it by then to make the steps towards his ultimate goal – Formula One.
“I am 21 and I am aware that time isn't on my side,” he told Speedcafe.com.au
“So while I want to move on and up as fast as I can, I want to improve as a driver. I am looking at Formula 3 as a two-year programme (and) we (ED: Pye and manager Perry McCarthy) felt that we needed to be in F3 as soon as possible and to start learning.”
