The motorsport world is abuzz with the exciting announcement that Hitech Pulse-Eight's British F4 runner-up, Will Macintyre, is set to make a significant leap in his racing career by joining the GB3 Championship with the team in 2024. This move marks a pivotal moment in Macintyre's journey, showcasing his rapid ascent in the world of motorsport.
Will Macintyre's trajectory in single-seaters has been nothing short of meteoric. In his first full campaign, he demonstrated remarkable prowess with a triumphant performance at both Thruxton and Knockhill. Competing with the esteemed Silverstone-based squad, he amassed an impressive 12 additional podium finishes. His tenacity kept fans on the edge of their seats, as he remained a title contender right up to the final race of the season at Brands Hatch, finishing a mere 13 points behind the champion.
Macintyre's talents have not gone unnoticed. His stellar performance earned him a nomination among the final 10 for the prestigious Aston Martin Autosport BRDC Young Driver of the Year Award. Additionally, his induction into the BRDC Rising Stars programme further cements his status as a rising star in motorsport.
Before his stunning British F4 stint, Macintyre was already making waves in the Ginetta Junior Championship in 2022. There, he also finished as the runner-up and took home the Rookie title. His journey in motorsport, however, began much earlier. Macintyre's karting career, which started in 2017, is decorated with numerous accolades. He is notably the only Briton to have won the Italian Championship title in the 60 Mini category in 2019, among other prestigious titles.
Reflecting on his move to GB3 Championship 2024 with Hitech Pulse-Eight, Macintyre expressed his enthusiasm and gratitude. "GB3 is the logical next step for my second season in single-seaters," he said.
