11 / 12 September
Mikkel Grundtvig will contest the 2021 GB3 Championship with Fortec Motorsports, joining the team for his first full season of racing on British circuits.
The 18-year-old from Denmark makes a return to single-seaters this year, following a season in the Danish Endurance Championship in 2020 where he claimed three victories behind the wheel of a Lamborghini Huracán.
Hailing from Vejle, Grundtvig began karting in 2015 before graduating to cars in the entry-level Aquila Synergy Cup. Prior to racing a GT car last year, Grundtvig was a race winner in single-seaters, claiming victories in Renault Danish F4 and French F4 throughout 2018 and ’19.
Grundtvig claimed two victories and six podiums in the Denmark-based F4 series in 2018, before improving with a further three wins and eight podiums in the same championship the next year despite contesting just a partial schedule, as he dovetailed his appearances with a French campaign where he claimed a single win.
Grundtvig is Fortec Motorsports’ second confirmed signing for the GB3 Championship, following the earlier announcement that Brazil’s Roberto Faria would return to the squad following his part-time campaign last year.
