The 20-year-old, part of the Caterham Formula One(F1) team’s racing academy, stormed to third at Jerez on a rare appearance in the Formula Renault ALPS championship two weeks ago against many of his Eurocup competitors.

“I had a good result in 
the ALPS and the Eurocup guys were there, so we should have a strong weekend,” said Parry, who is 11th in the Eurocup — a championship won in the past by the likes of current F1 stars Felipe Massa and Valtteri Bottas.

Parry hopes to test a World Series by Renault car — the penultimate rung of the ladder en route to Formula One — following the Eurocup finale.

n Bury St Edmunds’ Charlie Ladell completed his Renault UK Clio Cup season with two top-six finishes at Brands Hatch at the weekend.

After finishing fifth in the first race at the Kent circuit, the WDE Motorsport driver secured a sixth-place result to end up 11th in the final championship standings.
