Callum Ilott is one of Britain's most exciting upcoming driving talents with a strong background in international karting. He had his first drive in a kart just before his 7th birthday and took his competitive novice race licence as soon as he was 8. By 12 years old he had begun to impress the international karting scene by winning the under 16s Formula Kart Stars British Championship and finishing 3rd in the German National Championship (KFJ category). He was selected in late 2017 by Ferrari to join its driver development programme, the Ferrari Driver Academy. After a title-challenging GP3 campaign in 2018, he is racing with the Sauber Junior Team in the FIA F2 Championship in 2019.
During his time at Heath Mount, Callum also enjoyed success as part of Heath Mount's Bax choir which the 2012 BBC Songs Of Praise Choir of The Year.
