ART Grand Prix GP3 Series 2018 line up

The 23-year-old Brit began his racing career at the age of 15 in karts, and brilliantly concluded his first year of motorsport in 2013 with a championship title in Formula 4 BRDC.

Awarded with a nomination in the prestigious McLaren Autosport BRDC Award and the status of being a BRDC Rising Star Member, Jake continued his progression in Formula Renault 2.0, GP3 and Formula 3, three competitive championships in which he achieved wins, pole positions and lap records between 2014 and 2017.

During the offseason tests in Abu Dhabi, Jake impressed ART Grand Prix with his adaptation and maturity by recording the best time of the session on the final day and integrating perfectly into the team.

Jake Hughes:

“I’m very proud and excited to be joining a team as successful as ART Grand Prix for a crack at GP3. The team’s performances in the series over the last few years especially, have been extremely impressive. So, when the opportunity came about to be able to be jump in one of their cars for 2018 it was impossible to say no. I tested for 3 days with everyone in Abu Dhabi and felt immediately confident in and out of the car. The aim is clear when racing for a team like ART, so I cannot wait to get down to the workshop and get going!”

Sébastien Philippe:

“ART Grand Prix has followed Jake’s progress for several years and he has continued to impress us. Last year, he was the spearhead of Hitech in F3, with whom we have been collaborating with for several years, and we are happy to give him a second chance in GP3. Jake is a great talent that only wants to express himself fully and ART Grand Prix can rely on him to help the team retain its titles.”
