Logan Hannah to race in new GB4 championship
Formula Ford regular Logan Hannah steps up to F4 machinery in the brand-new GB4 Championship, as the Scottish racer is the first announced driver on the entry list. Hannah will race with Graham Brunton Racing and backing from Laser Tool Racing.
20-year old British racing driver Logan Hannah will compete in the inaugural GB4 Championship for Graham Brunton Racing, with support from Laser Tool Racing. She is the first driver to be announced on the new series entry list.
Hannah had a remarkable karting career before stepping up to single-seater cars 2018. Since then, she has been a regular in Formula Ford events, as well as the Walter Hayes Trophy on home soil. Furthermore, in 2018 and 2019 Logan competed in the UAE-based Formula 4 championship, including the Trophy Round at YAS Marina in support of the Abu Dhabi F1 GP. She was the first female racer to enter the series.
The new GB4 championship will partner the BRDC and will visit all the UK's premier circuits in conjunction with British GT and GB3 Championship. Formerly known as British F3, the series was rebranded as GB3 last year and will switch to the significantly upgraded Tatuus MSV-022 car, opening a gap at F4-level that will be filled by the brand-new GB4.
GB4 will employ the extremely-successful Tatuus T014 F4 car, that ran in the Italian, German, Spanish, UAE series among the others. With outings in the Emirates, Logan Hannah already has a few races under her belt in the same machinery, as she will join Knockhill-based Graham Brunton Racing.
“I’m so looking forward to this coming season! Having competed in the UK National and Scottish Formula Ford 1600 championships for three seasons, I feel that I am ready to move up to the more sophisticated formula." - commented Hannah.
“GB4 is a tremendously exciting new championship that will progress aspiring drivers forwards in single-seater racing and with Laser Tools Racing’s support, I’m very proud to be involved at this early stage."
Hannah will continue her successful relationships with GBR, who will prepare and run the race car as in the past few years - as well as with Laser Tools, which supported the Scottish lady at the BRSCC National Formula Ford 1600 round at Oulton Park, at the Formula Ford Festival at Brands Hatch and at the Walter Hayes Trophy at Silverstone in 2021.
“Logan provided an impressive performance in 2021 which gave us the confidence to continue our support for 2022." - added Martin Smith, chairman of Laser Tools.
"Laser Tools Racing is all about spotting young talent and then developing that talent on the race track. That’s exactly what we will be doing with Logan this year.”
Hannah, who was at the start of the 2022 Virtual Le Mans 24 Hours a few weekends ago, will tackle her first full season of slick-and-wings racing. The season is scheduled to start at Snetterton on 2-3 April for the first triple-header, before moving to Oulton Park in mid-April. The 8-event calendar then includes more visits to Silverstone, Donington Park, Snetterton, Silverstone, Brands Hatch and Donington for the season finale on 15-16 October.
