Catch me if you can, says Day, 19

    Israeli racing hopeful Alon Day could be competing in the US next season, and insists that he still has his mindset on breaking into Formula One.

    Day, who is competing in the German Formula 3 Championship, raced at Silverstone on Sunday and came seventh out of 12 after struggling throughout the weekend, experiencing problems with the set up of his car.

    The 19- year-old lies fifth overall in the F3 standings, just two points off third with two races remaining.

    "Third place will be really tough, I know that, but I hope we can do it," said Day. "We will do the best we can."

    Day said that he has "a few opportunities," including the American Indie Lights Series and the Renault World Series, but admitted that money was the main problem in his quest to reach Formula One.

    He was at Silverstone for the official launch of the Jewish Racing Drivers Association, formed earlier this year. The organisation wants to get a Jewish driver into Formula One within five years.

    They revealed plans to create the Jewish Racing Drivers Foundation, which will support drivers financially in their quest to reach Formula One.

    Joe Williams, one of the founders of the organisation, explained that as well as philanthropy, they were looking for donors who were willing to invest in the careers of Jewish drivers in return for a share of their future salaries.

    "There has been a lot of positive interest in investing in some young Jewish racing drivers," he said. "We've had a few people who've come to us and we've found a number of potential investors.

    "The next phase is to promote the fund. We want to have a constant flow of drivers coming through."
