Graham Brunton Racing has signed Seb Murray for the final two rounds of the GB4 season.

The 16-year-old made his single-seater debut in the Formula 4 United Arab Emirates Trophy event at Yas Marina Circuit that supported last year’s Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, and he finished his first two single-seater races with Xcel Motorsport in eighth and ninth place.

He spent most of 2022 in karting, coming ninth in the IAME UAE Series and 63rd in the IAME Euro Series for X30 Senior karts, and also racing those in a club event in England, and ninth in Rotax Max Challenge UAE’s Rotax Senior class.

The UAE-based Scot began 2023 in F4, joining Italian team Cram Motorsport to contest the full F4 UAE season. He had a best finish of 13th from 15 races, and his best qualifying result was 24th. Since then he has done F4 testing in Europe.

“I’m really excited about the opportunity to drive for GBR. New tracks, new car and a new team will be a fantastic learning experience and I can’t wait,” said Murray, who will debut at Brands Hatch this weekend.

Graham Brunton, boss of the eponymous GBR team, added: “We’re delighted to add Sebastian to our line-up for the final two rounds of this year’s GB4 championship. He has shown a lot of potential through his karting career, and joins our team with some good F4 knowledge courtesy of his races in the Middle East.

“Brands Hatch and Donington Park are very different circuits to those he is used to, but it’s all part of the challenge that with our help, will enable him to develop further as a driver.”
