Cooper Webster will race in Eurocup-3 next year with a new alliance between two teams he raced for on opposite sides of the globe in 2023.
Webster finished runner-up in GB4 this year with Evans GP. He took his first two wins at Snetterton in June and when dominant champion Tom Mills skipped the final round at Donington Park, Webster swept all three races – ultimately finishing just 11 points behind Mills in the standings.
He also raced in his native Australia in the S5000 championship with Versa Motorsport and finished third in the standings – repeating the result he achieved with the same team in 2022.
Those two Australian-owned teams have now formed a partnership as Versa Evans GP to enter Eurocup-3, “following a successful informal partnership” in GB4.
“I’m thrilled to be joining Versa Evans GP for the 2024 Eurocup-3 Championship,” Webster said.
“It’s an exciting opportunity to compete at an elite international level and showcase my skills on world-renowned circuits. I’m looking forward to continuing to work with Versa Motorsport and Evans GP and to contribute further to their success.”
The team has two more seats available for Eurocup-3 and says it is “already in advanced discussions with multiple prospective drivers”.
On Webster, Evans GP boss Joshua Evans said: “Having worked with him in GB4, it’s clear that he’s a talented driver with a lot of potential.”
Versa’s Toby Pope added: “Cooper has been racing with Versa Motorsport in S5000 since 2021 and has made remarkable progress as a driver. We’re looking forward to developing this further.”
