Christian Lester has confirmed that he will return to the GB4 Championship for the 2023 season, reuniting with his family-run squad Rossoverde Racing.
The Northern Ireland native competed in the majority of the inaugural GB4 campaign last year, and showed a consistent improvement in pace as the season progressed, allowing him to take up front row starting positions for the final races at Donington Park and Silverstone.
He claimed a best result of sixth during his most impressive round of the season on the Silverstone Grand Prix circuit, where he also secured his best qualifying positions of the campaign.
GB4 provided the foundations for his return to racing last year, having competed in selected rounds of the British F4 Championship in 2018, and then participated in the Australian Grand Prix-supporting F4 round in 2019, where he was the rookie class runner-up.
He’s also competed in tin tops, and was a pole-sitter in Ford Fiestas before turning his attentions to single-seaters. Lester intends to race car number five, as piloted by his hero Sebastian Vettel in F1.
