The Arden Motorsport GB3 team will run under the Arden VRD banner in 2023, after further strengthening ties with the USA-based VRD Racing operation.
Arden, founded by Garry and Christian Horner, is a renowned European single-seater powerhouse courtesy of successful F3000, FIA F2, GP3, Formula Renault, Formula Regional and F4 campaigns in addition to GB3 over the past 25 years, while VRD, headed by Briton Dan Mitchell, has taken multiple titles in FIA-sanctioned F4 and Formula Regional Americas categories in the USA.
The collaboration will step up another level in 2023, with opportunities for VRD’s USA-based drivers to sample GB3 machinery and for Arden’s roster to explore options in the States, opening up significant career opportunities for young drivers in both teams.
"GB3 is a great championship, and one we've monitored for a while now. It sits perfectly between our other programmes, giving drivers the opportunity to graduate from British F4 into GB3, and then onwards to Formula Renault.
"The British GT package is a very appealing one for sponsors, with excellent live coverage, and it means our UK-based teams now run at the two largest national events, which helps drivers at this stage of their career when they're starting to build a name for themselves. It also offers opportunities for development for our in-house engineering staff as they scale the ladder, which is something else we're very proud of.
