Hitech Pulse-Eight has confirmed that its British F4 runner-up, Will Macintyre, will graduate to the GB3 Championship with the team in 2024. 

In his first full campaign of single-seaters last year, the British driver was a winner at Thruxton and Knockhill with the Silverstone-based squad, and secured 12 additional podium finishes. He finished just 13 points behind the eventual champion, having kept the title battle alive all the way to the final race of the season at Brands Hatch. 

Macintyre was also among the final 10 nominees for the Aston Martin Autosport BRDC Young Driver of the Year Award, and has been inducted into the BRDC Rising Stars programme. 

His successful British F4 stint followed a front-running campaign in the 2022 Ginetta Junior Championship, also finishing as the runner-up, having contested the Winter Series in 2021. In all, he took six victories, 15 podiums and claimed the Rookie title, before making his single-seater debut in the final round of the 2022 GB4 Championship, earning two second places. 

His karting career began in 2017, and Macintyre has earned several accolades over the years, including being the only Briton to have won the Italian Championship title in the 60 Mini category (in 2019). He was the IAME Nations Cup Champion and Vice Champion in the WSK Euro Series, and also finished third in the Rotax Max Challenge International Trophy and the IAME Winter Cup in 2021.
