British driver Zak Taylor will move up to the GB3 Championship partnered by the BRDC in 2022, and will complete Fortec Motorsport’s line-up alongside Scandinavian duo Mikkel Grundtvig and Joel Granfors.
The 19-year-old moves to GB3 after a promising first year of single-seater racing in British F4 last year, which saw him claim a victory at Brands Hatch and additional podiums at Thruxton, Snetterton, Knockhill and Donington Park.
Taylor’s single-seater debut followed two productive years in the Ginetta Junior Championship, starting with a partial campaign in 2019 after his GCSEs were completed, before attending six of the eight events in 2020, where he stood on the podium an impressive seven times.
His karting career commenced in 2016 in Junior TKM and the British Schools Karting Championship. The following season he was sixth in the Super One National Junior TKM Championship, as well as winning the PF International Junior Winter Series.
Following several days of testing in the older-specification GB3 car, Taylor is now gearing up for a maiden campaign in Britain’s premier single-seater category with regular winners Fortec Motorsports.
