Formula One Esports champion Lucas Blakeley makes his slicks and wings racing debut in the GB4 Championship at Snetterton with KMR Sport.
The 21-year-old Scotsman won the 2022 F1 Esports Series for McLaren, having been a front-runner for several campaigns before that. He was also the winner of the eROC title at the Race of Champions earlier this year in Sweden.
As well as being one of the world’s leading Esports competitors, Blakeley has also made a high-profile switch to real-world competition, notably beating F1 stars Valtteri Bottas, Mika Hakkinen and Sebastian Vettel in head-to-head contests in the past two Race of Champions events in Sweden.
In addition, he has also sampled circuit racing in Formula Ford, and was the runner-up in the Scottish Championship last year. He has since competed with KMR Sport at the Silverstone round of the United Formula Ford series, and then the Oulton Park event for the National Formula Ford Championship back in April.
Blakeley sampled slicks and wings machinery for the first time in GB4 testing with the team at Snetterton this week, and having made considerable progress across Thursday and Friday, will now make his debut in the series this weekend with backing from KMR’s sponsor SD Sealants.
