Chris Dittmann wins F3 Cup title and F2 test at Snetterton

Sunday, October 28 2012

28/10/12 - New F3 Cup champion Chris Dittmann admitted it will take some time for his success to sink in and is already looking forward to his FIA Formula Two test reward.    

The 23-year-old from Tewkesbury cmade history by claiming the inaugural F3 Cup championship with a Trophy class victory, in tricky damp conditions at Snetterton 300 today (28 October).
Dittmann was involved in a three-way title deciding final round with Snetterton local Tristan Cliffe and Italian Gino Ussi, but the Silverstone National race winner just about did enough, finishing seventh overall in race one to take the title.
Coupled with the honour of becoming the first F3 Cup champion and picking up his first championship title, Dittmann has been rewarded with a prize FIA Formula Two test drive which he is eagerly awaiting.
The moment is arguably the former Ginetta racer's career highlight and revealed it will take time for the enormity of what he has achieved to sink in.
He said: "It's a brilliant feeling to win the F3 Cup title. It hasn't sunk in yet, it has been a long year but for me it's been great. The F3 Cup has been absolutely fantastic this year and it will be even better next year so hopefully I can win it again.
"I'm very excited about the opportunity of an FIA Formula Two test drive. Hopefully I can show what I can do in the car and enjoy the experience."
Dittmann is likely to feature on the grid in F3 Cup next season hoping to defend his crown.
