Branden Oxley remains with CDR for new-look GB3 campaign

Chris Dittmann Racing is excited to confirm that Branden Oxley will remain with the team for the 2022 GB3 Championship season.

The Anglo-Thai driver made his series debut with the team at Snetterton in August and made an immediate impression by qualifying fifth, despite it being his first taste of driving the car in the wet and his first visit to the Snetterton circuit.

In all, Oxley banked six top-10 finishes in his half season, finished every race and very nearly claimed a podium finish at the Silverstone Grand Prix circuit in August.

Before his GB3 debut, the 17-year-old had competed in Spanish Touring Cars, making his racing debut in 2020. He then moved into single-seaters earlier this year with a maiden campaign in Spanish F4 while also taking part in a one-off round of the EuroFormula Open championship at F1 venue Imola.

Branden has already started a comprehensive GB3 pre-season testing programme with the team ahead of the series’ introduction of the Tatuus MSV-022 car. The new machine will boast more power, greater aerodynamic performance and include the halo safety device.

Team Principal Chris Dittmann said: “I’m really pleased to welcome Branden back to the team for the 2022 GB3 season. Through the four race weekends we worked together this year, he made massive progress and I’ve got every confidence that will continue to happen over the winter and into the new season.

“The introduction of the new car will be a challenge, but having really impressed on his EuroFormula appearance earlier this year, in a car that should have similar characteristics to the new GB3 one, I’m confident that Branden will be fighting his way towards the front next season.”

Branden Oxley said: “I’m excited to announce that I’m remaining with Chris Dittmann Racing for 2022 in the GB3 Championship. We have already made a lot of progress together this year and we keep working hard, hence I’m confident and can’t wait to get behind the wheel of the new car in a few weeks. See you on the grid in April!”
