Eduardo Coseteng will step up from British Formula 4 to join the grid of the GB3 season finale at Donington Park with Fortec Motorsports.
The Filipino has spent his rookie year in single-seater racing so far with Argenti Motorsport, and last weekend claimed his first F4 podium at Donington.
He will pilot the third Fortec entry in GB3, previously driven by a trio of F4 champions: Ollie Bearman, Hunter Yeany and Luke Browning.
“I want to start by saying a massive thank you to Fortec Motorsport, as well as my sponsors Petron and Autoplus for this amazing opportunity,” said Coseteng.
“I’m feeling really excited to try something new, and to seeing what I’m capable of in the GB3 car.
“It’s a very competitive series, and I’m coming up against opposition with far more mileage in these cars, so there’s no expectations; I can go out, enjoy my racing and continue gathering experience to help inform my future.”
Prior to racing cars in Britain, Coseteng had spent two seasons primarily campaigning X30 Senior karts. His single-seater career is set to remain in the country, with GB3 one of the options under evaluation to race in for 2022.
“We’ve monitored Eduardo’s progress all season, albeit as his competition, and have been impressed, so it’s good to have an opportunity to work together,” Fortec’ team manager Oliver Dutton said.
“In Roberto [Faria] and Mikkel [Grundtvig], he has two good team-mates as a reference point for his first weekend in the series. There’s no expectation on him, this is just an exercise in getting some mileage in the car and getting a feel for what the championship is like.
“We look forward to seeing how he gets on and supporting him in that process.”
