Ella Lloyd joins Rodin Motorsport for F4 debut in FWS

Ginetta GT Championship GT5 vice-campion in 2023, Ella Lloyd will make her single seater debut in the final two rounds of Formula Winter Series, as the 18-year-old joins Rodin Motorsport at Aragon and Barcelona.

Ella Lloyd will make her first single seater start on 1-3 March, as the Welsh 18-year-old driver joins Rodin Motorsport for the Motorland Aragon round of Formula Winter Series. Lloyd will also contest the final round of the Gedlich-promoted championship, which will be held at Circuit de Catalunya one week later, on 8-10 March.


"I’m excited to announce that I will kick start the 2024 season by competing in the final two round of the Formula Winter Series alongside Rodin Motorsports for my single seater debut ahead of the 2024 season", Lloyd wrote.

"I’ve been working very hard over the winter months for the upcoming season and can’t wait to get started, See you on track soon!"


The teenager has been racing in the GT5 class of the Ginetta GT Championship in 2023, alongside an intensive Formula 4 testing program with Rodin Motorsport.


Racking up an impressive tally of 10 race victories across the 2023 season, Lloyd ended the year as one of the winningest female drivers in 2023. A further 8 podium finishes - and 6 fastest laps - meant that the teenage racer finished second in the GT5 Pro class of the Protyre Motorsport Ginetta GT Championship.


Ella looked set to claim the title midway through the year, before a controversial incident at Brands Hatch derailed her charge. Nonetheless, Lloyd’s one-lap pace was excellent and has often put her in premium position to battle for the wins - a crucial skill as she takes the step into single seaters.


Her 2023 testing program as well as her Formula Winter Series debut suggest a full-time move into F4 in 2024, but no full plans have been yet announced.

In a partnership with Spanish F4, Formula Winter Series has seen its starting grid expanding to close to 40 entries over the Jerez and Valencia weekends - where also Carrie Schreiner, Bianca Bustamante and Lia Block competed in. Bustamante and Block are expected to be back in Aragon.
