Skip Barber Racing School proudly announces that Nicholas Maloy will compete full-time in the 2023 Skip Barber Formula Race Series season. The 17-year-old Utah native is a recent Skip Barber graduate, completing his 3-Day and 2-Day Advanced Racing Schools at Circuit of The Americas in January of this year, and is aiming to have a strong debut season.
Maloy brings a solid racing resume including three podium finishes in the Yokohama Porsche Sprint Series behind the wheel of his Porsche GT4 last year in the last race of the 2022 season at Sonoma Raceway. Of those three podium finishes, one included being on the top step with his first ever race win. Nicolas plans to compete in the 2023 Porsche GT4 Junior Series, as well as the Skip Barber Formula Race Series. Coming from the sports car over to the open-wheel car, Maloy says he felt right at home almost immediately and loved the car. When Nicholas isn’t behind the wheel of a car, you can find him working out at the gym or practicing on his racing simulator.
“My goal for the year is to be able to win both the Skip Barber Formula Race Series Championship and the Porsche GT4 Junior Series Championship,” Maloy said. “In the long-run, I hope to be competing at one of the top levels of open-wheel racing in either Formula 1 or IndyCar.”
