Robbie Watts sets his sights on 2013 F3 Cup title

30/12/12 - Robbie Watts is focussing all of his efforts on an assault for the 2013 F3 Cup title.

06/02/13 - Single seater champion Robbie Watts has revealed he will contest a full season of F3 Cup in 2013 focussing all of his efforts on a tilt for the title.    

The experienced single seater racer made sporadic appearances in the championship during 2012 while also contesting the Monoposto Championship and the 750MC Formula 4 Championship. After romping to the F4 title last season, he is now setting his sights of a new challenge by competing in a full season of F3 Cup in 2013.   

The Essex-born racer made his F3 Cup debut in 2011 before purchasing a 2006 Dallara which he raced at Spa, Brands Hatch GP and Snetterton 300 in 2012. The 45-year-old thoroughly enjoyed his F3 Cup outings, which he fitted in around his other commitments, and is now eager to challenge for the 2013 F3 Cup title.      

Watts said: "We are going to concentrate on F3 Cup in 2013 with the same determination we have contested F4 in the last three years. We have had an extremely busy couple of years contesting three championships in three different cars and it will be a little bit of a relief to concentrate on one car.

"I'm excited by the challenge and I would really like to add another title to my collection. The car is pretty much ready to go so I cannot wait for the first round of the season."   

Preparations for the new season are well underway with Watts enjoying a successful test day at Brands Hatch.
