Arden calls time on GP3

Leading international motorsport team Arden have decided to end their GP3 programme, when the series becomes the FIA F3 Championship in 2019.

Leading international motorsport team Arden have decided to end their GP3 programme, when the series becomes the FIA F3 Championship in 2019.

The team, which was originally named MW Arden, and was formed in association with Mark Webber, are looking to a wider focus for their future motorsport operations.

Arden have been involved in GP3 since the series began in 2010, and are the second most successful team in GP3 history, with only ART ahead of them. Highlights include winning Driver Championships in 2012 and 2013 with Mitch Evans and Daniil Kvyat.

Arden also compete in the F2, FR2.0 and FIA F4 Championships and this year have, in partnership with JOTA, operated R-Motorsport’s successful entry into the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Championship.

Garry Horner “We have been involved in GP3 since its inception in 2010, and were actually one of the founding teams. Arden have also enjoyed considerable success in GP3 winning the Driver’s Championship with both Mitch Evans and Daniil Kvyat.
However, after a successful year running the R-Motorsport Aston Martin programme in the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Championship, and with potential for an increased involvement in sports car racing and with other opportunities in other forms of motorsport on the horizon for the Arden group, we have decided, for the time being, to concentrate our single seater focus on our F2, FR2.0 and F4 programmes.
We have enjoyed being part of the GP3 family and feel that as a team we have made a significant contribution to the success of the GP3 Series over the last 9 years. We would like to thank Bruno Michel for his support and wish him, and all of the teams competing in FIA F3 in 2019, all the best for the forthcoming season."
Bruno Michel “I would like to thank Garry Horner and Arden International for their hard work and passion over the years of GP3. They were a force to reckon with which led to the success of Mitch Evans and Daniil Kvyat. I am pleased to continue our fruitful relationship in the FIA Formula 2 Championship.”
