Alisha Palmowski will step up to the GB4 Championship with Elite Motorsport this year, as the Derbyshire teenager stays with the Norfolk squad for a second consecutive year.

The former Ginetta Junior Scholarship winner finished fifth in the Junior Championship last year with the team, having scored 10 podiums.

The 17-year-old from Glossop embarks on only her third full season of car racing, having claimed the 2018 BirelART Series UK Junior Rookie Champion kart title and finished as runner-up in the Daniel Ricciardo Series UK National Junior Championship in 2020 and 2021.

The British Racing Driver’s Club (BRDC) Rising Star recorded impressive lap times in a two-day test at Oulton Park last week (13/14 March), topping the combined timesheets. Palmowski will join Finn Harrison in Elite’s two-car line-up, with Finn also graduating full-time from Ginetta Juniors this year. He recorded the second fastest time at the Cheshire venue. 

Alisha recently received the Goodwin Trophy for finishing runner-up in the overall British Women Racing Drivers Club Championship. She also won the VIP Adrenaline Trophy for the best performance in a sports car as well as receiving the BWRDC Junior Gold Star Award.
