Supercars racer Thomas Randle will drive a Formula 3000 car in the new Tipo F1 category at the 2023 Adelaide Motorsport Festival.
The Reynard 90D was designed and developed by Australian engineer Malcolm Oastler and constructed and built by Reynard Motorsport in 1990. Formula 3000 was the support category to Formula 1 between 1985 and 2004, replaced by GP2/F2 from 2005.
The car heading to the 2023 Adelaide Motorsport Festival was raced in Europe and is powered by a Mugen Honda three-litre V8 engine, producing 500 horsepower.
It features the iconic 7 Up green livery made famous by the Jordan Formula 1 team in 1991. Formula 1 great Michael Schumacher made his Formula 1 debut in the 7 Up livery at the 1991 Belgian Grand Prix.
Randle races in Supercars for Tickford Racing, joining fellow Supercars drivers such as Craig Lowndes, Tim Slade and Todd Hazelwood at the 2023 Adelaide Motorsport Festival event. Randle's open-wheel background includes Formula Ford, Toyota Racing Series, Formula 3, Formula V8 3.5 Series and S5000.
The Tipo F1 category is new to the Adelaide Motorsport Festival, featuring a Dallara IR-07 IndyCar, the Rodin FZED track car, S5000 and Formula 5000 cars, the Arrows AX3 three-seater F1car and more.
