The motorsport world is buzzing with excitement as Hitech Pulse-Eight officially announces the arrival of Martinius Stenshorne to their FIA Formula 3 team for the 2024 season. This move marks a significant step in the young Norwegian's burgeoning career, showcasing not just his talent but also the confidence Hitech Pulse-Eight places in his potential.
Stenshorne, a remarkable prodigy in the racing world, has been making waves ever since his karting days. His journey, which began with multiple titles between 2018 and 2020, including the prestigious 2018 WSK Master Series in 60 Mini and the Italian Championship in the same category, has been nothing short of spectacular. The announcement by Hitech Pulse-Eight is a testament to Stenshorne's exceptional skills and his rapidly ascending trajectory in motorsport.
The 17-year-old's shift to FIA Formula 3 with Hitech Pulse-Eight in 2024 comes on the heels of a successful stint in the Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine. In 2023, Stenshorne finished second overall, clinching the top rookie honors with an impressive tally of four poles, five wins, and six podiums. This performance underscored his readiness for the more competitive and challenging environment of FIA Formula 3.
Stenshorne's transition to single-seaters in 2022 saw him complete a season in Italian F4, where he finished an impressive seventh overall, setting the stage for his move up to FRECA. The Norwegian's dedication and skill have shone through every step of his career, and his latest achievement is no exception.
His recent participation in post-season testing with Hitech Pulse-Eight earlier this year further highlighted his prowess. Stenshorne finished the final day in Jerez as the fastest driver, a feat that not only showcases his raw speed but also his ability to adapt and excel in new environments. Speaking about his promotion to FIA F3, Stenshorne expressed his excitement and eagerness to begin his journey with Hitech in the coming year.
"I am looking forward to making the step up to FIA F3 with Hitech next season. I have every confidence that they will allow me to develop in my rookie season in the championship. It will be a new challenge for me, however, I am feeling eager to be fighting for the top spots from the get-go,” said Stenshorne.
Paul Bellringer, the F3 Team Manager for Hitech Pulse-Eight, shared similar sentiments about Stenshorne's addition to the team. "We are delighted to add Martinius to our Formula 3 line-up for 2024. He showed great potential during testing and given his race-winning form in FRECA this year, we are confident that we will have an exciting and successful season together," Bellringer commented.
The motorsport community eagerly anticipates what the 2024 season holds for this young, dynamic driver. With Martinius Stenshorne at the wheel for Hitech Pulse-Eight in FIA Formula 3, the racing world can surely expect thrilling performances and perhaps the emergence of a new star in the making.
