Luke nominated for BRDC Young Driver of the Year Award

GB3 Championship leader Luke Browning has been confirmed as a finalist in this year’s Aston Martin Autosport BRDC Young Driver of the Year Award, along with three former GB3/BRDC British F3 contenders.

Browning has won more races than any other driver in GB3 this year, and leads the championship by 16.5-points heading to Donington Park in October. He also has more pole positions, podiums, and fastest laps than his rivals.

Alongside him at the Silverstone assessments will be three previous finalists in the shape of Ollie Bearman, Jamie Chadwick and Louis Foster.

The assessments include fitness and simulator elements before the two-day test at the Silverstone Grand Prix circuit in MSV F2, United Autosports Ligier LMP3 and Beechdean Aston Martin Vantage GT3 cars.

The winner will receive a prize F1 test with Aston Martin, £200,000, full British Racing Drivers’ Club membership and an Arai helmet.

“The Award is something I’ve been looking at since I stepped into car racing” Browning told Autosport Magazine. “It was a goal coming into the season. I’ve looked at the Award for years and years, and I was gutted when it didn’t run when I won British F4 in 2020, but I’m a much better driver than I was then. I can’t wait for the F2 car, it’s a monster!”
