Born on 23 December 2000 in Avignon, France, Clément Novalak is a professional racing driver for Trident Motorsport in the FIA Formula 3 Championship. Clément’s career began driving karts when he was just ten years old, where he won his first of mulIple karIng Championships in 2015. His entrance into single-seaters came at the beginning of 2018 in New Zealand, where he raced in the Toyota Racing Series NZ. Securing two wins, four podiums and three fastest laps, Clément ended the season fiRh overall in the Championship standings. His impressive performance during the campaign didn’t go unnoticed – with many highlighing the achievements of the rising star.
Shortly after his success in New Zealand, Clément returned to race in the United Kingdom, running a dual campaign in both the 2018 Formula Renault 2.0 Championship, and the 2018 BRDC British Formula 3 Championship, where he took pole in the first race of the season. In 2019, after having secured a full-time drive with Carlin in British F3, Clément piloted his car to two poles & two wins, securing the Championship in his first and only full year in the series.
Following his British F3 title win, Clément had his first taste of FIA Formula 3 at the post-season test in Valencia. In February 2020, he was named as part of Carlin Buzz’s lineup for the 2020 season, where he claimed two podiums, and had two fastest laps in his rookie debut. At the post-season test at Catalunya, Clément joined the Trident Motorsport outfit and set the fastest time of the second day’s morning session. Clément will campaign for Trident Motorsport in the 2021 FIA Formula 3 Championship.
