Major European winter testing programme begins for Hitech GP

After a busy first few months of operation, including a hugely impressive outing in the final event of the FIA Formula 3 European Championship, the Hitech GP team is to embark on a major winter test programme throughout November with exciting driver pairing George Russell and Nikita Mazepin.

Elated to welcome British 17-year-old Russell, winner of last year’s coveted McLaren Autosport BRDC Award and the 2014 BRDC Formula 4 Championship title, and 16-year-old Russian Mazepin to the Silverstone squad, team owner Oliver Oakes is also relishing the prospect of working with John McGill who has joined Hitech as Engineering Director.

After eight years at renowned title winning F3 squad Prema Powerteam, McGill’s appointment underlines the commitment to excellence Hitech GP is fostering and solidifies the desire the team has to shake-up the established order during its first full season in FIA F3 next year.
