2016 GT4 Teams’ champions confirm that it will be running a pair of Ginetta G55’s in this years championship.
After winning the Teams’ Championship in 2016 in their debut year, 2017 was a frustrating one for the Kent based outfit. Today’s news also means that the championship will now have four confirmed Ginettas after HHC Motorsport already announced that they would also be running a pair.
News of the driver line up is still to be announced, but one car is an all-Silver pairing and the other will have a driver with GT4 experience.
Team principal Tony Gillham said “GT4 is growing at a very fast rate and the level of competition is very high,” he said. “We are under no illusions how strong the grid will be this year but are more than ready and as a team we are always up for the challenge.
“I think the rise of interest in the GT world as a whole and especially GT4 makes it a very appealing career move for up and coming racing drivers. Couple that with our unique concept as a team and that is arguably one of the best overall packages available.”
Gary Allen (Team manager) added “It was touch and go for a while as to whether we had our two cars accepted for 2018. The appeal of GT racing and the SRO package has meant that the series is in fact over-subscribed, so it was a case of working as hard as possible to make sure we were in the best shape possible for 2018 following approval of our entries.
“We now have a dedicated GT factory and have built a very solid infrastructure as we look to challenge again for the team championship we won in 2016.”
The season starts at Oulton Park on March 31-April 2nd.
