Arthur Rogeon will switch teams to Rodin Motorsport for his second season in GB3.

The Frenchman drove for Chris Dittmann Racing in GB3 last year, and the single-seater rookie came 21st in the standings with three podiums in reversed-grid races. His move to Rodin comes as a surprise as he signed a two-year deal with CDR.

Rogeon stepped up to GB3 after two years in senior karting, coming 23rd in the Champions of the Future series, 26th in CIK-FIA European championship and 30th in the WSK Euro Series for OK karts in 2022.

“At Rodin Motorsport, they believe in my potential to fight for victory,” the 17-year-old said of his GB3 team switch.

“There’s always a little pressure when tackling such a challenge, but no stress. I’m going to have a winning car so it’s up to me to do my best to make it happen. I know what has to be done; you have to be impeccable in all areas: the speed on the track, the work between sessions, the physical fitness and simulator preparation.

“In short, I will stack all the odds in my favour to compete at the front because that too is what will help me progress.”

Rodin’s GB3 team manager Ricky Taylor added: “Arthur has already shown brilliant potential in the GB3 car and we are looking forward to seeing how he develops with us this year. We believe he is in a brilliant position, knowing a lot of the tracks and the car from 2023 will help him take that next step and eye up race wins.”

In the supporting GB4 series, Fox Motorsport has added Megan Bruce to its line-up. The 19-year-old switches to single-seaters after one season in the Caterham Academy, where she came 10th in the standings for the ‘Green’ group of drivers. The series’ entrants are split into two seperate groups for on-track action due to high competitor interest.
