Biography

Accomplished tin top racer Dylan Hotchin will step up to the GB4 Championship in 2023, after confirming plans to enter as a privateer.

Hotchin will become the first fully-blown private entry in GB4, with the 18-year-old switching from Ford Fiesta racing to single-seaters, and competing under the Dylan Hotchin Racing banner. 

The Lincolnshire resident has been racing since the age of eight, having gone wheel-to-wheel in karting against drivers now competing in FIA F3, British Touring Cars and W Series. 

Hotchin's karting career ended in style in 2019, finishing as runner-up in the British Super One Junior ROK Championship, and qualifying for the GB Team at the World Finals in Italy, which he considers his career highlight thus far. 

He moved up to car racing in 2020, competing as a privateer in the BRSCC Fiesta Junior Championship before moving up to the Senior Fiesta 240 ST Championship in 2021, where he continued in 2022. 

When Hotchin isn’t racing, the single-seater newcomer is an Apprentice Control and Instrument Technician, and together with his father Richard, plans to invite fellow Mechanical and Electrical/Control trainees from workplace apprenticeships and colleges to be part of the team at race weekends, with additional guidance from British Steel senior engineers.
