Douglas Motorsport has confirmed that Australian rising star Marcos Flack will complete the team’s driver line up for the 2022 GB3 Championship partnered by the BRDC.

The 15-year-old will join compatriot Tommy Smith and American driver Max Esterson in a three-car entry for the Northamptonshire based team, which is set to contest its tenth consecutive season in the UK’s leading single-seater championship.

Flack, who turns 16 in March, moved into single-seater racing last year with a great karting pedigree, having enjoyed success at both domestic and international level. An impressive maiden campaign in British Formula 4 saw him secure three overall podium finishes and a Rookie Cup class win.

Alongside that, the Brisbane based racer contested one-off rounds in the Italian and German Formula 4 championships and a busy 2022 season will see him continue to build his single seater skills and experience by combining his GB3 efforts with an Italian F4 entry.

Having enjoyed several GB3 tests with Douglas Motorsport at the latter end of 2021, and after showing impressive pace in the official pre-event test for the Donington Park season finale, Flack is ready to hit the ground running in pre-season testing.
