The calendar, dates and everything you need to know about the new season


Elite Motorsport’s Tom Lebbon and John Bennett head to the penultimate GB3 Championship event of the season at Brands Hatch (10-11 Sep) buoyed by Lebbon securing his and the team’s second race victory.

Lebbon and Bennett lie sixth and ninth in the Driver’s standings with Elite fourth in the Teams’ rankings following the latest three races at Silverstone (30-31 Jul). 

Tom posted a sixth-place finish from a second row start in Race 1 before repeating his maiden GB3 victory scored at the Northamptonshire venue in May from a front row start. Traffic in quali cost Lebbon a likely pole start but led Race 2 throughout, holding on for the win despite a puncture on the last lap.

Bennett meanwhile enjoyed one of his strongest GB3 weekends in his impressive rookie season as he consistently battled among the front-runners to register two top-eight finishes from season personal best P5 grid slots.  

Eddie Ives, Team Owner & Manager

"Our latest visit to Silverstone treated us well - just as it did earlier in the season.

"Both Tom and John were strong in qualifying and they raced well.

"It was a shame for JB in Race 3 as he was looking extremely fast and making good progress.

"Obviously, I was very pleased to get another overall win from a front row start for Tom. 

"After a busy 2 weeks in GB3, we now have a little break before looking forward to the remaining two events, six races, of the championship."
