John Bennett is a talented young racing driver working his way up the motorsport ladder, competing in the GB3 Championship this year.
Following in the wheel tracks of his father Tony, a successful club racer, John started corporate karting at the age of 7 and competed regularly for a number of years.
The 19 year old driver, who resides in Salisbury, Wiltshire, made his car-racing debut in 2020 in the ultra-competitive Ginetta GT5 Challenge.
A maiden campaign ended with a great run of three podium finishes in the final four races, setting him up for a championship challenge the following year.
Bennett did exactly that, with a brilliant season featuring five race wins, ten podium finishes and two pole positions as he finished as the overall vice-champion.
An exciting transition to single-seater motorsport followed in 2022, as he stepped up to the UK’s premier single-seater category, GB3.
Competing against some of the brightest young talents from across the globe, he produced a superb rookie campaign to net regular top six finishes and record a breakthrough podium result.
Buoyed by that success, he returns for a second year in the championship in 2023 with multiple champions Rodin Carlin.
John’s standout performances in recent years have led to Motorsport UK recognising his “exceptional potential” and inducting him into their Team UK Futures programme.
