Hillspeed has confirmed highly rated British driver Oliver Clarke as their first driver signing for the 2020 BRDC British F3 season.

Kings Lynn-based Clarke, who has been racing in the Formula 4 United States Championship since graduating from karts to cars in 2018, has already enjoyed successful tests in one of Hillspeed’s race winning BRDC British F3 Tatuus-Cosworths, and the 16-year-old has already made a big impression on the team.

Clarke started racing at the age of eight in 2011 and established a very successful karting career, becoming the youngest member of the then MSA Academy and being selected for the talent development pathway for two consecutive years.

In 2017, although still aged just 14 at the time, Clarke stepped-up into the senior ranks in karting and also branched out onto the European stage alongside domestic commitments. Ending the European Karting Championship Senior X30 Class an excellent third overall, he also won the OK Junior British Open title and was third overall in the OK Senior British Championship. 

Moving into ‘slicks and wings’ cars in 2018 after heading across the Atlantic to America to race in the USA F4 Championship, Clarke scored the first points for the new Velocity Racing Development team with a highlight weekend at the Circuit of the Americas in Texas, supporting the United States Formula One Grand Prix. This year, he achieved a best result of fifth at Road Atlanta.
