Career[edit]

Karting[edit]

Dan Ticktum in 2015

Born in London, Ticktum entered karting at the age of eight, competing in Honda Cadets with Project One Racing. He enjoyed early success, culminating in him becoming Vice Champion of the National Super One Championship in 2010 before moving into Comer Cadet.

In 2011, he completed the Grand Slam of British national cadet titles — winning the British FKS Championship, National ABkC Super One Championship, British Open Championship and British Grand Prix Championship. This has been achieved by only one other driver in history.

A year later, Ticktum moved into the international scene, competing in the WSK Euro Series and WSK Masters Series, finishing both championships as the highest placed rookie.

In 2013, Ticktum joined Ricky Flynn Motorsport, becoming Vice Champion of the CIK FIA European Championship, tying on points with the Champion, and Vice Champion in the National Super One Championship. The same year Ticktum was awarded the KFJ Andrea Margutti Trophy; previous winners include F1 stars Giancarlo Fisichella, Robert Kubica and most recently Daniil Kvyat.

The following year, Ticktum became Vice Champion of the WSK Masters and during his first test with Lanan Racing, in BRDC Formula 4 Championship, he memorably broke the lap record at the Brands Indy circuit.

MSA Formula[edit]

In 2015, Ticktum graduated to MSA Formula with Fortec Motorsport.[2] He led the early rounds of the Championship, until an infamous incident at Silverstone, where he overtook 10 cars during a safety-car period and deliberately crashed into Ricky Collard, saw him receive a two-year ban from motorsport. This included a suspended ban for the second year.[3][4] As a result, he finished 6th in his first season of single seater racing.

FIA European Formula 3 Championship[edit]

In 2016, Ticktum returned to motorsport, competing in the final round of the FIA European Formula 3 Championship in Hockenheim with Carlin. He then raced in the Macau Grand Prix with Double R Racing finishing 8th in Saturday's qualifying race before retiring early in the main race.[5]

Formula Renault[edit]

In January 2017, Ticktum was announced as a member of the Red Bull Junior Team and will race in the 2017 Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 with Arden International.[6] He claimed his only win in the season at Hungaroring and finished the season seventh in the driver standings.[7]

GP3 Series[edit]

In September 2017, Ticktum made his debut in the series at Monza with DAMS.[8] He claimed a podium finish in only his second full race weekend at the season finale in Abu Dhabi.

FIA Formula 3 World Cup[edit]

In November 2017, Ticktum competed in a one-off race at the Macau Grand Prix with Team Motopark and claimed victory.[9] He would win the race again in 2018.

FIA European Formula 3 Championship[edit]

In December 2017, it was confirmed that Ticktum would contest the FIA Formula 3 European Championship with Team Motopark in 2018.[10] He would finish the chamiponship in second after leading during the early part of the season.

FIA Formula 2 Championship[edit]

Ticktum drove for Arden in the final round of the 2018 FIA Formula 2 Championship in Abu Dhabi.[11]
