FIA Formula 3 race winner Martinius Stenshorne joins Chris Dittmann Racing for Silverstone weekend

Chris Dittmann Racing is delighted to welcome Martinius Stenshorne to the team for the upcoming GB3 Championship meeting at Silverstone, over the weekend of April 27/28.

The Norwegian born racer is already a winner in the FIA Formula 3 Championship, having clinched victory in the Sprint Race in Melbourne last month, fighting his way into the lead in the early stages and fending off late pressure to cross the line first.

In 2023 he made his way into the Formula Regional European Championship history books as the first Rookie to take pole position at the opening race of the year and then took the win on his debut.

Martinius was born into a racing family, with his father Martin a competitor in the World Rally Championship. He had his first laps in a kart at the age of four, began racing at ten, and won both the WSK Master Series and Italian Championship before moving to cars.

His appearance at Silverstone comes as part of Chris Dittmann Racing’s link up with the Hitech Academy, with full-season GB3 Championship racers Flynn Jackes and Seb Murray joining the team through the partnership.

After two days of testing on the Silverstone Grand Prix circuit, the team will tackle qualifying and the opening race on Saturday, April 27th, with races two and three the following day. Live coverage of all the action will be carried once again on the MSV TV channel on YouTube or the GB3 Championship website.

“I’m really excited to join Chris Dittmann Racing for round two of the GB3 Championship. It’s a new car and a new track, so it’s going to be a great and difficult learning experience, but a good one to take forward to the future.”

Dan Hodder, Hitech Academy

“We are delighted to have Martinius compete alongside our regular Hitech Academy drivers, Flynn Jackes and Seb Murray, as we look to tackle this weekend’s second round of the GB3 Championship at Silverstone. His experience will be very well received in the team, and we look forward to a strong weekend with Chris Dittmann Racing.”

Chris Dittmann, Team Owner

“We’re very happy to welcome Martinius to the team at Silverstone. We’ve built a positive relationship with the Hitech Academy, helping to get seat time for talented youngsters, helping develop their skills as racing drivers in key stages of their careers. It will be a new challenge for him, learning both the car and circuit, but we’ll be working hard as always to give him the best chance of success as possible.”
