Jonny Wilkinson

Fortec Motorsport are pleased to announce Ginetta GT5 Challenge front-runner Jonny Wilkinson will join the team for the upcoming BRDC British Formula 3 Championship season finale at Silverstone this weekend [07-08 November].

Rising star Wilkinson, who currently sits third in the highly-acclaimed tin-top category with a race victory, seven further podium finishes and a one-hundred percent top-five finish record in 2020, also counts a part-season in Ginetta Juniors and a one-off appearance in the F4 US Championship at Road Atlanta amongst his experience to date.

On that F4 outing stateside, Wilkinson also set a record for becoming the youngest-ever polesitter in an FIA-certified Formula 4 category, showcasing his rapid one-lap pace as well as race craft.

He will partner Brazilian racer Roberto Faria at the Daventry-based outfit for the final triple-header of the season in the UK’s premier single-seater category at Silverstone.

Wilkinson’s only previous racing visit to the Northamptonshire circuit came in late September this year, the 16-year old taking a brace of fifth-place finishes to put down a solid foundation for his biggest single-seater challenge to date this time out.

It also keeps the Abthorpe-based driver on the high-profile British GT Championship package, which has been granted ‘Elite Sport’ status by Motorsport UK amidst the current COVID-19 restrictions, and therefore can conclude the 2020 season this weekend.
