Rob Huff has announced that he will be the first guest driver to take the wheel in the Ginetta G50 Cup when he takes part in the BTCC support race at Thruxton this Easter.

The car will be prepared by front runners DynoJet with Huff lining up alongside Frank Wrathall, Julien Draper and Benji Hetherington.

Lawrence Tomlinson, Boss of Ginetta was happy with his first guest driver, “Its great to start the season with Rob in DynoJet's guest Ginetta G50 and a real opportunity for Ginetta front runners to pit their skills against a World Touring Car driver.”

Rob Huff, who is currently taking part in the WTCC with Chevrolet and RML revealed his excitement at the opportunity, “I've followed the G50 Cup for the last three years so am incredibly excited about getting behind the wheel of a G50. Having never tested one before I think its going to be a very interesting weekend of racing – there are some seriously big contenders in this year's championship but I cant wait to get out on track and see what I can do!”

Frank Wrathall Snr of DynoJet commented: “The Dynojet team are delighted to be able to run Rob at Thruxton. He's had some impressive podiums with Chevrolet and it will be interesting to see how he handles the G50. There is some strong competition from G50 long-timers but I'm sure he will challenge the front runners!”

Further guests will be announced on a round by round basis.
