Motopark has made its third signing for the 2023 Euroformula signing, adding Bryce Aron to its line-up.

The 19-year-old American graduates from GB3, where he has come 12th in the standings the past two years. He claimed two fourth places in his rookie season in with Carlin, then won a race and had two other podium finishes with Hitech GP in 2022.

Before that he raced in Formula Ford 1600 as a Team USA scholar, finishing fifth in the FFord Festival and third in the Walter Hayes Trophy in 2020. That year he also came fifth in the BRSCC National championship. In 2019 he had come third in his home country’s F1600 Championship Series.

“I couldn’t ask to join a better team for my first foray into racing in mainland Europe,” said Aron.

“Motopark has been the name to beat in recent seasons and I fully expect to be keeping them at the front of the field in 2023.

“Of course, I will be seeing many of the circuits for the first time, but I’m a quick learner and, knowing that this season is an important step up the ladder, want to use it to gain vital knowledge and experience of venues that I hope to return to in higher series in the future.”

Aron’s career is looked after by Peak Performance Management, which is run by former GP3 racers Matthew Parry and Kevin Korjus.

“We are delighted to have Bryce on board,” Motopark team principal Timo Rumpfkeil said.

“We have been testing with Bryce a couple of times last year and all the time he has been really competitive right from the go. He has a huge potential and he’ll be a title contender, we look forward to a great 2023 with him.”

The Euroformula grid now has four confirmed drivers and five confirmed entries across Motopark and BVM Racing. Double R Racing has recently been testing in Portugal with its cars, and Van Amersfoort Racing will continue to test drivers in its Dallara 320s even though it has told Formula Scout it will not be returning to the series this year.
