GB4 contender Chloe Grant has confirmed that she’ll graduate to the new F1 Academy series for the 2023 season, with French powerhouse squad ART GP.
The Scottish teenager was a full-time entrant in GB4 last year, recording 10 top-10 finishes across the final 12 races of the season, with two top-five results at Brands Hatch being her best scores of the season.
She was also a finalist in the FIA Girls on Track programme held towards the end of the year.
“I am really excited to contest this season with ART Grand Prix” Grant said. “We share the same ambition for winning and with the history and victory that ART Grand Prix carries, I look forward to seeing what we can achieve together. It's a privilege to join their long list of successful and talented drivers.
“The F1 Academy presents an opportunity to us female drivers that we haven't seen before, and I know we have a competitive inaugural grid. I can't wait to get started!”
ART Team Principal Sébastien Philippe added: “ART Grand Prix is happy to accompany Chloe in her first year of international competition. Last season, she showed a glimpse of her talent and determination, which had already enabled her to have a great career in karting. This development corresponds perfectly to the philosophy of our Company, which is proud to participate in this new sporting and individual journey.”
Grant joins fellow GB4 graduates Megan Gilkes and Jessica Edgar in the new series, with GB4 alumni now accounting for 20% of the 15-car grid for the inaugural F1 Academy season.
