Scottish team Graham Brunton Racing has added another Canadian youngster to its GB4 line-up for 2024, with 15-year-old Mayer Deonarine joining to make his slicks-and-wings debut.

So far Deonarine is only confirmed for the season-opening round at Oulton Park which takes place on March 29 and April 1.

Deonarine and his future team-mate Callum Baxter are both members of the Road To Racing Canada programme, a charity which supports racing drivers who are yet to make it as professionals and has fully funded Deonarine’s Oulton Park outing through its Diversity and Inclusion scholarship.

“Open-wheel racing in the UK has been a lifelong dream of mine, and I am incredibly grateful to Road to Racing for providing me with this incredible opportunity,” said Deonarine. “I am eager to learn and grow as a racer and to showcase my talent on the international stage.”

At the start of this month, when he was still only 14, Deonarine started his car racing career by entering Radical Cup North America’s season opener at Sebring. He sits third in the Pro 1340 standings after making the class podium in all three races, and plans to make further appearances in the series.

Last year he was 12th in the Florida Winter Tour and 13th in the ROK Vegas final for ROK Junior karts, and came 22nd in the final for KA100 Junior karts in Superkarts USA’s SuperNationals event.

GBR team principal Graham Brunton added: “I’m thrilled to have Road To Racing Canada supporting our GB4 drivers Mayer Deonarine and Callum Baxter. Their dedication to nurturing young talent aligns perfectly with our mission, and I’m excited to see the impact they’ll have on these promising young racers.”
