11 / 12 September
Brazilian rising star Roberto Faria will remain with Fortec Motorsports for a full season assault on the 2021 GB3 Championship.
The 16-year-old made his series debut at Donington Park in September and improved rapidly, claiming top-six finishes in each of the final six rounds of 2020. His progress was highlighted by an extremely strong weekend at Silverstone, the season finale, where he secured two top-three starting positions in qualifying and ended his year with an excellent second place in the final event of the season.
The Rio de Janeiro resident finished 14th overall in the championship standings, despite only competing in the final 13 races of the year.
Prior to his graduation, Faria had proven himself as a front-runner in the British Formula 4 Championship, taking two overall podiums and a pole position with Fortec.
His single-seater debut came with the team in 2019, claiming 21 British F4 Rookie Cup podiums on his way to third in the class standings. Before this, he’d enjoyed a strong karting career, where he claimed multiple State Championship honours in his homeland, before moving on to the CIK-FIA OK-Junior European Karting Championship.
