Racing team reports theft of car, claims perpetrator is ‘involved in motorsport industry’

They believe it was stolen by someone in the motorsport industry and is now in Germany.

Evans GP have reported that one of their Formula 3 cars has been stolen by, they believe, someone in the motorsport industry. 

The team is just a year old and is run by Australian Josh Evans who has competed in Formula 3, Formula 4, Formula Renault and Formula Ford as a driver, winning in each of them.

This year they competed in the Formula Regional Asian Championship, previously known as the F3 Asian Championship, which came to an end in Abu Dhabi in February.

After that, their cars were apparently shipped to Europe, and they believe one has been stolen and is in Germany.

The team finished sixth in the Constructors’ Championship this year, scoring 118 points, claiming one win and one P2 finish.

It was a somewhat disappointing campaign given they won multiple races and finished P2 in the standings in their first season in 2021.

The 2023 campaign begins in January in Abu Dhabi, and Evans and co are aiming to win the title for the first time.

They will be hoping that their missing car can be located before then and are calling for anyone with information to contact them immediately.
