German racing driver, David Beckmann enters a new chapter in his racing career, as he joins Team Trident for the remainder of the 2018 GP3 season. With a pole position and promising pace in the series so far, David looks to thrive in his new partnership as the season continues.
Graduating from a successful joint campaign in Formula 4 in 2015, the Iserlohn-born racer made his debut in European Formula 3 Championship, as one of the youngest ever competitors at the age of 16. During his two-year stint in the competitive series, he earned two podiums and a series of strong points-scoring positions.
Joining the GP3 field for 2018, David now moves to Team Trident to form the successful team’s four-driver line up, alongside Pedro Piquet, Giuliano Alesi, and Ryan Tveter.
Speaking on their new partnership, Trident team manager, Giacomo Ricci comments:
“David Beckmann is a driver of undisputed value and I am delighted to see him join the line-up of Team Trident in the GP3 Series. I am sure that he will find an environment to thrive in so to lay good foundations and achieve great results already this season and in the future. David is joining a well-established and successful context and he will definitely be able to benefit from it.”
“I am delighted to join such an ambitious and passionate team. I think that, by working hard together, we will be able to experience a successful second half of the season.”
Director of Infinity Sports Management, Harry Soden echoes:
“It’s a good move for David in a team that has proven it can run at the front and win races in GP3, like David we are excited and looking forward to getting out on track”
