Carl Breeze will race a new Ginetta G55 with Total Control Racing in the first ever Ginetta GT Supercup, after confirming a deal to stay with the Wednesbury based team. Breeze once again teams up with Joachim Ritter in the team and will head into the series with his eyes set firmly on the championship win.
Breeze has enjoyed two years of success with TCR in the Ginetta G50 Cup, finishing third in the standings in 2009 and runner up in 2010. He will be hoping to go one better and add the Ginetta GT Supercup title to his trophy cabinet, with the added incentive that the championship winner gets a fully funded season in the British Touring Car Championship in 2012. The Kings Lynn based driver last raced in the BTCC back in 2004.
Breeze commented: “I'm really looking forward to competing in the first season of the new Ginetta GT Supercup, the G55 looks great and the lap times should be greatly increased from the old G50. The prize of a BTCC drive for the champion is what I am aiming for. Although I have won 17 races and taken 33 podiums over the last two years, a championship is missing and I want to change that this season!
“TCR is a great team and I am proud to have been their most successful TOCA support series driver during my time with them. There's absolutely no reason why we can't continue that this season and go for that championship title. Thanks, as always, to Blue Chip for continuing to put their support behind me – now we need to work hard over the next couple of months to find additional backing.”
Delighted to secure Breeze's services once again, team principal Lee Brookes said: “It's obviously fantastic news we've agreed a deal with Carl and his chief sponsor Blue Chip to remain part of TCR for the inaugural Ginetta GT Supercup.
“It promises to be a really exciting year with the new G55 and with Carl rejoining Joachim, it gives us perfect continuity. He's almost certain to start the season as the championship favourite and having come really close to winning a title with us over the last two years, he'll be hungrier than ever.”
