The JTR team has confirmed that it will continue its programs in British Formula 3 and Formula Ford after the death of founder Joe Tandy, who was killed in a road accident yesterday afternoon.
Tandy formed JTR after stepping back from his own highly successful driving career, which had seen him win the 2005 Formula Palmer Audi title in his first year of single-seater racing.
"Joe's loss is an immense blow for the team and, it goes without saying, for his family and many friends," said a JTR spokesman. "All we wish to communicate at this stage is our sense of loss, and our absolute determination to move forward with both the JTR Formula 3 and Formula Ford teams, exactly as Joe would have wanted."
JTR driver Nick Tandy – Joe's younger brother – currently holds second place in the British F3 standings after the opening four rounds.
