11 / 12 September
Luke Browning will make his debut in the GB3 Championship on home turf at Oulton Park this weekend after re-kindling his partnership with Fortec Motorsport.
The 18-year-old from nearby Kingsley in Cheshire re-joins Richard Dutton’s outfit, with whom he was crowned FIA British Formula 4 champion in 2020, scoring seven race victories, a further nine podiums and six pole positions en route to the title.
Since then, Browning has excelled overseas in both the German and Italian F4 categories, including a victory in the former at the Red Bull Ring and a podium at Paul Ricard in the latter.
His impressive CV also includes a race-winning stint in the highly competitive Ginetta Junior Championship, but the step into GB3 marks an important milestone in Browning’s career.
Both team and driver arrive in optimistic mood; Oulton Park has been a happy hunting ground for both team and driver in the past, not least a hat-trick of victories in F4 last season, and Browning’s pre-season running in the GB3 challenger was very positive.
Browning will slot into the team’s three-car line-up alongside teammates Roberto Faria and Mikkel Grundtvig and will run his trademark #11 on the car.
