Jack Aitken joins Arden for the 2016 GP3 Series

Jack Aitken will line up for Arden International for the 2016 GP3 Series following an impressive showing in the winter testing sessions.

General Manager, Julian Rouse said: “We first worked with Jack in 2013 in the young driver test in FR3.5, he was already impressive then and now he has finished his studies and had the chance to fully focus on the racing in 2015, the performance from him has been outstanding in what was a very competitive year in FR2.0.

“We had a very good test in Abu Dhabi as well at the end of the year, it showed Jack is clearly ready to challenge for race wins in his rookie season in GP3 so we are really looking forward to continuing our success with him.”

The Anglo-Korean participated in post-season testing with Arden’s Formula V8 3.5 team at Jerez and Motorland, and then with the GP3 team in Abu Dhabi. He put in an excellent performance in the latter, by topping the timesheets on the afternoon of the second test day.

Aitken commented: “After working together once back in 2013, and having become close to all the guys here during the early years of my career, I’m extremely excited to be racing with Arden this year in GP3.

“Having come off the back of a championship-winning year in a very competitive series, I’m keen to not rest on our laurels and take the fight to the next level in GP3.”
