VRD Racing by Arden


American Shawn Rashid has confirmed that he will remain in the GB3 Championship in 2024, as he switches to the VRD Racing by Arden team for his second campaign in Britain’s leading single-seater series. 

The Atlanta resident made his slicks and wings debut in the category last year after a single season of car racing in the National Formula Ford Championship in 2022, where he was crowned Rookie Champion, following several podiums and two wins, including a dominant heat victory at the world-renowned Formula Ford Festival. 

Rashid also showcased his talent with a successful showing at the Walter Hayes Trophy, before transitioning to GB3 in 2023 where he finished strongly with a season-best sixth place at Zandvoort, underlining his adaptability and determination.

Having shown his potential in GB3, he now makes the move to the VRD Racing by Arden squad, with the team initiating a tailored off-season testing programme, fine-tuning his skills for the season ahead. This has included time on track at Monza, Barcelona and the Red Bull Ring, allowing the American driver to gain experience on some of Europe’s most challenging circuits.
