The successful Formula Ford team Ammonite Motorsport will join the GB3 grid next season with two cars.

The Northamptonshire-based squad have embarked on an extensive testing programme and acquired a couple of Tatuus-MSV 022 machines.

The highly experienced Andy Low will spearhead the team’s efforts next season, pitting against giants of the junior categories, Rodin Carlin and Hitech among others.

Low has brought more than a decade’s worth of knowledge to the team after working with Formula 3 cars and in the World Endurance Championship prior to acquiring the outfit from Cliff Dempsey in 2020.

Ammonite took 16 wins last year including the highly prestigious Formula Ford Festival and Walter Hayes Trophy meetings at the end of the season.

The team also has some notable alumni within the 2023 GB3 grid, Max Esterson and Shawn Rashid, with the former winning the Formula Ford Festival last year, building on his Walter Hayes Trophy success from the previous year.

As well as their great success in Formula Ford, Ammonite Motorsport have helped to develop a few IndyCar drivers Conor Daly, Kyle Kirkwood and the reigning Indy 500 winner Josef Newgarden through the Team USA Scholarship.

Team Owner and Manager Low said: ”We are extremely thrilled at the opportunity to expand our team with our new GB3 programme. In the last 3 seasons, 15 drivers from Formula Ford, including 5 drivers from our FF1600 team, have progressed into the MSV paddock, so we’re really looking forward to being able to offer our drivers that next step.

“The grids in GB3 speak for themselves, they are strong, competitive and full of driven individuals. We have already done a chunk of testing this season with much more planned for the rest of the year, and it is going really well. We can’t wait to bring our GB3 cars to the grid next year and are really excited about our future with MSV.”
