Liam Venter ready for F3 debut

“The focus though, is the main championship, which obviously doesn't start until April, but any positive results we can come away with from these two Winter Series events will be an added bonus. We will be looking to improve during the races at Paul Ricard and then at Jerez [March 1-2] and take the chance to get used to the series and test before we compete for 'real' in the proper championship.”

Venter is due to depart for Europe on February 10, and he will then be based in London for most of the year.

“South Africa will always be home, and I will come back whenever the schedule allows, but when the events are so close and testing is so crucial, it doesn't make sense to fly back and forth,” he explained.

“I want to be able to remain focused and fit and keep my eye on the ball. It is going to be an exciting year.”

Indeed, in addition to his outing at Paul Ricard in February, Venter is also heading to Sweden where he will do some driver training on ice. “I'm looking forward to the ice training in Sweden where professional rally drivers concentrate on extreme car control - if this was good enough for Michael Schumacher and Kimi Raikkonen it's certainly going to be good for me!” he concluded.
