John Bennett switches to Rodin Carlin for the 2023 GB3 Championship, having made his single-seater debut in the series last year.
The British racer took his maiden podium in the series at the final round of 2022 at Donington Park, off the back of a strong season which saw his consistency rewarded with eighth in the final standings.
Prior to racing in the GB3 Championship, Bennett enjoyed a fantastic season competing in the Ginetta GT5 Challenge. A brilliant showing of five race victories and ten podiums saw him crowned the 2021 Vice Champion in only his second year of car racing. Following his success, Bennett made the switch to single seater racing in 2021.
Bennett took his experience of British racetracks from his Ginetta racing and applied it well to his maiden season with GB3’s Tatuus MSV-022 chassis. Proving his consistency, Bennett was a frequent top-five finisher and collected regular points to secure his position of eighth in the standings. A podium at the final round at Donington further highlighted his great form as the championship concluded.
