Biography

GB3 front-runner Fortec Motorsport has completed its 2023 GB3 Championship line-up with the signing of British F4 graduate Edward Pearson.

16-year-old Pearson claimed 17 top-ten finishes in a consistent maiden single-seater campaign in 2022, as he stepped up to British F4 from Ginetta Juniors. His season ended in impressive style in October as he banked two top-five finishes on the Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit, his best results of the year. 

The Surrey resident’s F4 campaign came after a strong Ginetta Junior season in 2021, where he first demonstrated traits of his constant improvement trend, banking a maiden car racing podium in the final race of the year, also at Brands Hatch.

Preceding his graduation to car racing, Edward was an impressive contender in a brief karting career, placing fifth overall in the 2019 British Kart Championship X30 Mini division, and he took the same position in the IAME Winter Cup X30 Junior category a year later. 

He now steps up to another level for the fourth consecutive season, and joins Max Esterson and Jarrod Waberski in Fortec’s GB3 line-up for 2023.
