Reigning Ginetta Junior champion Tom Gamble will step up to the 2018 BRDC British Formula 3 Championship with Fortec Motorsports. He makes the move to single seaters after a dominant season in 2017, where he secured eight victories with 17 podiums on his way to winning the title.
The talented 16-year-old from Epperstone, Nottinghamshire, wasted no time showcasing his natural talent as he produced strong performances at Donington, Thruxton and Rockingham Speedway, stepping onto the podium in every race. A treble victory at Silverstone moved him closer to the title, before clinching the crown in the penultimate race on the Brands Hatch GP circuit.
Prior to his controlling 2017 season, Gamble had great success in karting, winning the Rotax Max Wintercup Junior category in 2015 and narrowly missed out on winning the Senior category the following year, finishing runner-up. The young Brit was also one of few to be crowned double Kartmasters Champion.
Gamble has recently commenced a pre-season testing campaign with Fortec’s British F3 team, and was an impressive second fastest in the recent Media Day official test at Donington Park. He completes Fortec's three car line-up for the forthcoming season, alongside Frenchman Tristan Charpentier and Venezuelan Manuel Maldonado.
