Noah Ping makes his UK racing debut this season in the 2023 GB3 Championship with Arden VRD.
The 20-year-old from Gainesville, Georgia, has proven himself as a single-seater front-runner, having finished third in the 2022 USA F4 Championship with VRD, and taken the runner-up spot in the YACademy Winter Series, also with VRD.
His USA F4 campaign included four victories, with one each at Road America, the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, Virginia International Raceway and Circuit of the Americas, in addition to four other podium finishes, two pole positions and four fastest laps.
That success was preceded by strong performances in the YACademy Winter Series, where Noah finished just 12 points away from the eventual champion, with two wins and two further podium finishes from the six races.
His car racing career began in 2020 in the Radical Cup, and he took three wins in the category in 2021 on the way to claiming the Rookie of the Year honour. He’s also raced in the SCCA Spec Racer Ford series, two eight-hour World Racing League races at the Circuit of the Americas, and contested the first two weekends of last year’s USF Juniors series.
