Japanese looking forward to GB3 challenge after team and series début at Donington last October



Japan’s Ayato Iwasaki will remain with Elite Motorsport for a full maiden GB3 campaign this year having made his début in the GB3 finale last October with the Norfolk squad.
 


Ayato posted a sixth place finish in the final race at Donington Park, his first-ever car event in Europe, finishing less than four seconds behind the race winner.
 


Iwasaki, who contested three Formula Regional Middle East Championship races in Kuwait earlier this year, has since tested at Valencia and MotorLand Aragón in readiness for the season.
 


He made his car racing debut in the 2022 Formula Regional Asian Championship at Yas Marina and also contested two Japanese F4 Championship events last year.
 


Ayato joins previously announced McKenzy Cresswell while Elite expects to announce a third driver for the series in the coming weeks.
 


* The Tatuus MSV-022 GB3 car is powered by a two litre, four cylinder normally aspirated Mountune engine, producing over 250bhp.

Age: 19
Born/Lives: Osaka, Japan




“I feel GB3 is the best series for me at the moment in my career, both in terms of cost as well as the competitive level. The car is great to drive and the series goes to some very nice tracks. I really enjoyed my first time in the UK at Donington last year. The series is very well organised and the car is really fun to drive.
 
“I was very comfortable with Elite at Donington. All the mechanics, engineers and coaches were super friendly and made me feel very welcome. It is also a very competitive team with great results, always fighting at the front. I hope to be able to score more podiums and wins for them.”
 




Eddie Ives, Team Owner & Manager



“I’m extremely pleased to have Ayato competing for us this season. He surpassed our expectations in the final GB3 event of the year last October especially considering it was his first races in the category and at Donington Park - in fact first time racing in the UK.


Testing has been going well for him over the winter and I’m very much looking forwards to how Ayato develops in GB3 during the year.”
