Having confirmed the signing of Australian Formula Ford champion John Martin last week, Alan Docking Racing has now announced the signing of Italian Francesco Castellacci for the 2007 British F3 International Series season.

The 19-year-old, who lives in Milan but is originally from Rome, will drive a Mugen Honda powered Dallara in the Championship Class and admitted he was looking forward to making the move into Formula Three for the first time.

"I'm very happy to have joined the Alan Docking Team for the Formula Three British Championship class this year," he said. "This for me is really a great adventure and opportunity and I have chosen to continue my motorsport carrer in England because it simply always been my dream since I started racing in Karting.

"I think also that the British F3 is the racing category where drivers who aim to a professional carrier in motorsport can learn the most."
