The title in the Japanese Formula 3 championship is within grasp for Carlo van Dam, but the Dutchman isn’t too concerned about that. This weekend he can become the champion at the Fuji Speedway. The TOM’s Toyota driver goes for victory and that automatically leads to the title.

Carlo: “Our goal for this weekend is as always to win the races. The focus is to have a good result. I can become champion at Fuji Speedway, but in order to do so I have to perform good.”

That has to happen at the home circuit of Toyota. “That’s a nice bonus. It has been raining a lot in Gotemba the past few days. The expectation is that there is more rain to come. It’s been a while since I’ve driven on a wet circuit. To prepare myself I’ve trained hard and studied the data from the previous race at Fuji.” 

“On Friday we will try some new things with the set-up in the free practices. I’m very motivated to perform well here and to win both races. Fuji is the only circuit where I haven’t been so quick, so I really want to excel this weekend and win the championship with flair.”
