Randle to don Schumacher’s F1 debut colours

THOMAS Randle’s ride for the 2023 Adelaide Motorsport Festival has been confirmed, with the second-year Tickford Racing Supercars driver hopping in a Formula 3000 car.

Randle will feature in the event’s new Tipo F1 category aboard a 1990-built Reynard 90D designed by accomplished Australian engineer Malcolm Oastler.

The V8-powered beast is dressed in a 7 Up livery akin to the colours in which Michael Schumacher made his Formula 1 debut for Jordan at the 1991 Belgian Grand Prix.

Randle, who explored the European open-wheel scene before focusing on Supercars, will be part of a high-profile field of drivers at the March 25-26 event.

Sauber F1 star Valtteri Bottas will be in attendance and may even get a taste of a V8 Supercar, while Craig Lowndes, Tim Slade and Todd Hazelwood are among other key names getting involved.

Other cars entered in the Tipo F1 class include featuring a Dallara IR-07 IndyCar, the Rodin FZED, S5000 and Formula 5000 cars, and the Arrows AX3 F1 three-seater.

F3000 was the primary support category to Formula 1 prior to foundation of GP2 in 2005.
