Sports car racer Lexie Belk will make her single-seater debut in the GB4 Championship at the Donington Park season finale on 21/22 October, after confirming plans to join the series as a private entrant.
The 16-year-old from Doncaster is a podium finisher in the GT5 Pro category of this year’s Ginetta GT Championship, having taken two third place finishes from 14 races in 2023, with both coming at Donington Park in May.
Prior to her graduation into Ginettas, Belk had impressed in the BRSCC Fiesta Junior Championship last season, finishing fourth overall and second in the Rookie class. In total, she claimed six top-six results and was inside the top-10 in every race in which she took the chequered flag.
Her career began at the age of nine in Cadet Karting, after which she moved up to Minimax and Junior Rotax levels before moving into cars for the first time last season.
The move into single-seaters will come with assistance from fellow privateer Dylan Hotchin, and at the wheel of a Tatuus F4 T-014 car purchased from 2022 frontrunners Hillspeed.
She has already completed test days at Oulton Park and Donington in recent weeks, and will now make her series debut at the East Midlands venue on 21-22 October. She will run under the Belk Racing banner.
