Christian has considerable junior formula expertise to bring to his brief New Zealand campaign, including several seasons in karting, experience in Formula 4, Euroformula Open, the GB3 Championship and in 2023 FIA Formula 3, where he became a regular points scorer and took a maiden podium finish at the Silverstone round.

He also competed at this year’s Macau Grand Prix, finishing 16th in the main event. His broad range of experience should make him well-suited to the Castrol Toyota FR Oceania cars and he hopes it will help him settle quickly into a race-winning pace.

“I’m super excited to be competing in the Castrol Toyota Formula Regional Oceania Championship next year, and it’s great to partner up with Castrol,” said Mansell.

“I’m thankful for the opportunity to race in this highly competitive series and I’m eager to take some trophies back with me. Let’s hit the track!”
