With the start of most championships approaching every weekend, 19 year old British racing driver Megan Bruce announced her racing plans for 2024: she will make her debut in the GB4 Championship with Fox Motorsport, as the teams first signing ahead of the upcoming season.


The young woman from West Sussex made her racing debut in 2023 in the Caterham Academy and made some great impressions as she qualified for the front row in her third race, finished on the podium during the season and showed great progress without any prior racing experience.


She now steps up to single seaters in the first-gen F4 Tatuus – moving from the stripped-down sportscar – and will make her racing debut from 29th March to 1st April at Oulton Park for the first race weekend of the season.


“This move is so exciting. Adapting to the change from a Caterham on treaded tyres to a GB4 single-seater with slicks and wings has been interesting so far, but the Fox Motorsport team have made me feel at home so I feel I’ve had the best possible starting point", Bruce said. "Having Liam [McNeilly] as someone who’s raced and won in these cars in the past year has been an added bonus to the work Jamie [Stanley] and the other coaches do here and should be a real help. I know it’s going to be a learning year, but I can’t wait for the opening round” – she added.


Fox Motorsport made their debut in GB4 in 2023 and won on their debut weekend in the series after previously competing in GT championships.


“We’re very pleased to announce Megan as our first GB4 driver for 2024 as part of what will be an all-new line-up", Paul McNeilly, Team Principal commented. "Although she’s never raced a single-seater before – and the GB4 car is very different to the Caterham she competed in last year – she’s getting stronger every time she climbs into the car."


"Her progress has been doubly impressive when you remember she’d never raced at all this time last year. I’m sure that the rate of improvement we’ve seen so far is going to continue during the season too.”


The season starts at the end of March at Oulton Park followed by 6 race weekends, which will see the season finale at the end of September at Brands Hatch.
