Ginetta Junior ace Aqil Alibhai will make his single-seater debut in the GB4 Championship season finale at Donington Park this weekend (15-16 October). The just-turned 16-year-old joins Leicestershire-based race team Scorpio Motorsport for the three-race event as he prepares for the next phase in his junior career.
Prior to the step up to open-wheel car racing, Aqil completed a strong 2022 season in the Ginetta Junior Championship with Elite Motorsport, where he achieved five podiums, a pole position and a fastest lap. Additional career highlights include a Ginetta Junior Winter Series race win and being crowned the 2019 Rotax African Open Champion in karting.
Ahead of his debut, the South African racer has been working hard with his coaches at Kokoro Performance to prepare for the event, including thorough simulator and fitness training.
