Chris Dittmann Racing brings home best F4 result to date

Chris Dittmann Racing enjoyed its best result in the F4 British Championship after an excellent drive by Joel Pearson on just his and the team’s second weekend in the closely fought single seater series. Coming straight from a busy GB3 weekend at Silverstone, the team travelled to Brands Hatch to continue its dual campaign. Jumping back behind the wheel, youngster Joel was keen to apply everything he had learned last time out and continue his rapid progress. The 20-minute qualifying session was once again fiercely contested, but there was a bit of bad luck for the 16-year-old. As he went[…..]

Strong finish to tricky weekend for Chris Dittmann Racing at Silverstone

Chris Dittmann Racing continued its positive start to the GB3 Championship season with further point scoring finishes at the weekend (May 7/8), as the series had three races on the Silverstone Grand Prix circuit. Qualifying was competitive, with the top ten drivers finishing within one second of each other, and after an unlucky session for both drivers, the races would be an upward battle for the team. A technical issue for Branden Oxley resulted in decreased run time for the Thai/British racer, though he refused to give in and pushed to record the 12th quickest time, while McKenzy Cresswell struggled[…..]

In a championship in which the single qualifying session sets the grid for all three races – with the fastest times counting[…..]

Chris Dittmann Racing begins GB3 Championship season with quintet of top-ten finishes

Chris Dittmann Racing began the 2022 GB3 Championship season with a strong weekend at Oulton Park, recording five top-ten finishes – with two top-five results – giving both drivers and the team a good boost for the rest of the year. At a venue which is both spectacular but also tricky on which to cleanly overtake, qualifying was going to be extremely important. With the top 15 cars finishing the session within one and a half seconds of each other, small gains would pay dividends. There was drama for Branden Oxley at the start of the 20-minute qualifying session as[…..]

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

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.
