Matthew REES

One of Wales’ most-promising prospects in recent years, Rees’ career began with a successful stint in IAME Cadets from 2013 to ’17, graduating to OK Junior before family illness put his career on pause in 2019.

He resumed mid-way through last season, utilising JHR Developments’ state-of-the-art simulator to familiarise himself with the UK’s circuits, before impressing the team in testing to secure a seat for 2021.

Rees will run in Britain’s FIA Formula 4 series this year with the backing of Ecom GT, GJR Holdings and Cool Performance, and has Abbi Pulling, McKenzy Cresswell and Joseph Loake for team-mates.
