British-born racer Aditya Kulkarni has signed with front-running GB3 Championship team Hillspeed for the 2024 season.

The multiple GB4 Championship podium finisher, who has Indian heritage, established a highly successful karting career prior to stepping-up into single-seater racing last year, and ended his rookie car racing season in a highly creditable fifth place in the driver's standings.

Now joining Markham Vale’s Hillspeed squad for his maiden campaign in the UK’s premier single-seater championship, Harrow-based Kulkarni is looking forward to adapting as quickly as he can to GB3, albeit with minimal pre-season testing under his belt. 

The 16-year-old, who was born in London, only started out his motorsport journey a few years ago but immediately impressed in karting – winning the 2021 Junior TKM Karting crown as well as that year’s ‘O’ Plate title in the British Open Championship. Additionally, he is a past TKM Festival winner and was a top-10 finisher in the British Karting Championship in 2021 and 2022.

Hillspeed claimed a total of five race victories in GB3 last year, the joint-most of any team in the series. 

Kulkarni will be sponsored for his debut season in GB3 by, with additional partners to be confirmed as the campaign progresses. His first official test runs in his new Hillspeed GB3 car will come this Thursday, 28th March, and Friday, 29th March, at Oulton Park.
