ART Grand Prix has completed its line-up for the new F1 Academy series with the signing of Chloe Grant.
The 16-year-old Scot came ninth last year in GB4, a series that uses first-generation Tatuus Formula 4 machinery, and went on to make the final four of the FIA Women in Motorsport Commission’s Girls on Track Rising Stars programme.
Previously, Grant won several karting club titles in Scotland and was 14th in the Junior Saloon Car Championship in 2021 in her first season of car racing after being awarded a scholarship.
She will partner Lena Buhler and Carrie Schreiner at ART GP in the all-women F1 Academy series, which will use Tatuus’s second-generation F4 cars.
“I am really excited to contest this season with ART GP,” said Grant. “We share the same ambition for winning and with the history and victory that ART GP 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. 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 GP team principal Sebastien Philippe added: “ART GP 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.”
