16 / 18 April
Reigning US Formula 4 champion Hunter Yeany will make his debut in the GB3 Championship with Fortec Motorsports at Spa-Francorchamps this weekend (23-25 July).
The 16-year-old from Virginia, United States is currently a front-runner in the Formula Regional Americas Championship. Yeany claimed pole position at Mid-Ohio and has scored points in all but one of his twelve race starts thus far.
Yeany’s graduation to Formula Regional came off the back of a dominant run to the US Formula 4 title in 2020, claiming seven victories and a further six podium finishes on his way to an eventual winning margin of 57 points.
Now, Yeany will make his European debut in single-seaters at the high-speed, sweeping 4.3-mile Spa circuit, famed for hosting the annual F1 Belgian Grand Prix.
He joins new team-mates Roberto Faria and Mikkel Grundtvig in the UK’s premier tier of single-seater racing, with Daventry-based Fortec looking to maintain their recent run of form after scoring a first victory and a fifth podium of the campaign at Donington Park a fortnight ago.
