Double GB4 race-winner Tom Mills will complete KMR Sport’s three-car line-up for the Oulton Park season opener this weekend (7-10 April).
The 17-year-old made his slicks and wings debut in GB4 last year with the family-run squad, with victories at Brands Hatch and Donington Park, plus six additional podiums helping him to fourth in the overall championship standings, while also helping KMR to take the teams’ title.
The Gloucestershire squad has purchased an additional GB4 car during pre-season, which will be piloted by Mills at the Cheshire venue, and he heads there having topped all four sessions in the newly-acquired machine at the recent Donington Park media day test.
Mills’ step up to GB4 last year came after impressing during his first year of car racing in 2021, where he took wins in the National Formula Ford Championship, and was a front-runner at the Formula Ford Festival. He returned to Formula Ford at the end of last year, and took fourth place in the end of season Walter Hayes Trophy event at Silverstone.
The British driver completes a cosmopolitan line-up for the reigning teams’ champions at the opening round, as he partners American Jeremy Fairbairn and Australian Jack Clifford at the squad.
GB4 Championship - fourth overall with two wins and six additional podiums
National Formula Ford Championship – fourth overall with one win and five additional podiums, three fastest laps
