GB3 stars Voisin and Loake inducted into BRDC SuperStars programme

02 February 2024

Reigning GB3 champion Callum Voisin and title rival Joseph Loake have been inducted into the BRDC SuperStars programme, amongst several other former championship contenders.

Voisin claimed the GB3 title for Rodin Carlin in the final race of the season at Donington Park, having won two races and stood on the podium nine other times throughout his sophomore campaign.

Loake meanwhile was a four-time winner in his first GB3 season, and took the title challenge all the way to the final event of the year, before being announced as the latest winner of the Aston Martin Autosport BRDC Award in December. Both drivers have been confirmed in Rodin Motorsport’s FIA F3 line-up ahead of the 2024 season.

For 17 consecutive years, the BRDC SuperStars programme, fronted by Director Andy Meyrick, has focused on developing the most promising young British drivers across all racing categories and exists along the Club’s introductory offering for young drivers, the BRDC Rising Stars programme.

These carefully selected individuals benefit from the unique experience and guidance provided by the BRDC’s influential network of Members, as well as specialised performance training, driver development work, and fitness sessions. Former BRDC SuperStars have progressed to compete Formula 1, at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and have secured professional contracts with a variety of factory teams.

Other GB3 graduates in the scheme include 2021 and 2022 champions Zak O’Sullivan and Luke Browning, plus race winners Oliver Bearman, Louis Foster, Matthew Rees and Tom Gamble.

 “The British Racing Drivers' Club has always been a strong supporter of young drivers and this year’s list of BRDC SuperStars is testament to that,” said BRDC President David Coulthard.

“Andy Meyrick and the team have done a brilliant job over the years to help nurture and guide these talents and mould them into professional racing drivers. There is no doubt that we will be seeing the names of some of these SuperStars on the Formula 1 grid in the years to come.”

Loake added: “It’s an exciting opportunity to be included in the BRDC SuperStars. Some very big names in motor sport have come through the Programme and it's a privilege to be joining it. Andy has already spoken to me and there's a lot more that goes on than meets the eye from the outside, which is really exciting, and it means that new opportunities are going to open up for me."

“Since I was announced as the Aston Martin Autosport BRDC Award winner, things have really moved forward for me, so it’s great to get the continued support of the Club as I take the next step in my career.”
