Chris Dittmann Racing has confirmed that Kanato Le will join the team for this weekend’s (1/2 June) GB3 Championship races at Spa-Francorchamps.

The 16-year-old Japanese racer has already bagged plenty of experience despite his young age, managing the transition from karts – where he finished second in the 2020 IAME Euro Series and the 2021 IAME Winter Series – to cars with ease.

Moving to Europe, he started at 14 in the Ginetta Junior Championship in 2022, scoring two wins, five podiums, and one pole position as he ended as the Rookie runner up. He switched to single seaters at the end of that year, adding a drive in F4 UAE and taking a second place at Yas Marina F1 support race.

After contesting the full F4 UAE campaign early in 2023, he joined the F4 British Championship, scoring two wins, four podiums, and recording four fastest laps. This year Kanato is contesting the full Formula Regional European Championship and took part in the final two rounds of the Middle East equivalent in February.

Further bolstering his race, car, and circuit experience, the teenager will tackle the first of three European visits for the GB3 Championship, at the legendary Spa-Francorchamps, where the series headlines the annual Spa Euro Race event.
