Chloe Grant has announced her plan to return to the GB4 Championship, where she will join reigning team champion KMR Sport.


The 18-year-old Scottish racer competed in the series inaugural season in 2022, where she scored 12 top ten finishes in the UK-based series, in her first year of single seater competitions – finishing ninth in the points' standings with also two top-5s to her name.


Having been selected for the third edition of the FIA Women In Motorsport's promoted Girls on Track - Rising Stars in the same year, Grant impressed in the F4 selections at Paul Ricard and advanced to the FDA stage at Maranello, where she drove the new gen Tatuus F4 car.


She would then graduate to the inaugural season of the F1 Academy in 2023, as she joined ART Grand Prix alongside Léna Bühler and Carrie Schreiner.

In the all-female series, Grant scored points straight away in Austria, then enjoyed her best performance of the season at Valencia where she claimed a fourth place in race 1. She continued to score points with consistency in almost every round, with the exception of Monza, where a big accident at the start ruled her out for the entire weekend.


Having finished in the top-ten on 9 occasions, she collected a total of 34 points to finish 12th in the standings.

Grant will now move back to GB4 in 2024, thus getting back to a car and on tracks where she has plenty of experience.


“I’m excited to contest the competitive grid that GB4 boasts, especially now I feel I have developed as a driver since my last time in the series", Grant commented. “Having raced alongside KMR Sport in 2022, and watched them win the championship title last year, I know I’m in good hands.”


Joining the ranks of KMR Sport, Grant will again count on the support of Laser Tools Racing and John Clark Motor Group, as well as Specsavers.


“I’m very pleased that Chloe is joining us at KMR Sport", said Team Principal Kevin Mills. "We are excited to get underway and will work hard to get her to the front of the grid.” 


The series has recently announced a €30,000 prize fund for the highest-finishing female driver in the championship, towards a F1 Academy drive. Grant is the third woman to enter the 2024 GB4 season, joining Alisha Palmowski and Megan Bruce.


The season will get underway on 30 March/1 April at Oulton Park for the first of seven triple-header rounds. The MSV-promoted series will also visit Silverstone, Donington Park, Snetterton and Brands Hatch.
