Lanan Racing have confirmed karter Joshua Mason as their first signing for the 2018 BRDC British F3 Championship.
The 15-year-old began racing in karts just last year and has competed in both the Junior Rotax and x30 categories. Despite his relative inexperience, he has already demonstrated his natural ability, winning both novice and rookie trophies.
Mason has signed a two year deal with the Lanan Racing team, who have worked with several car racing novices in recent years and developed them into race and championship-winning candidates.
In Joshua's first season in karts, he finished in the top-six in the Buckmore Park Club Championship and seventh in the Trent Valley Kart Club Championship, ending this season as the top Junior Rotax rookie.
He now makes the move up to cars after evaluating the BRDC British F3 car, and has also enjoyed plenty of mileage in an F4-specification machine as he acclimatises himself to single seaters.
