Recently crowned Ginetta Junior Winter Series champion Harry Woodhead has confirmed he will stay with HHC Motorsport for the 2013 Ginetta Junior Championship.

Woodhead finished sixth overall in the main 2012 championship with five podium finishes to his name, before joining HHC Motorsport for the Winter Series, picking up a maiden race win on his way to the title. The Staffordshire racer will now stay with the reigning champions for a challenge for the title in 2013.

“The Ginetta Junior Championship 2012 has been a great series to experience my first season of racing cars,” said Woodhead. “I completed the second half of the season as a privateer with my dad, race instructor and a mechanic with some success; it just goes to show that it is possible to be competitive as a dad and lad team if you have the time and commitment.

“Due to my dad’s business commitments and the goal of taking a real shot at the title, I decided that we need to run with a team. I believe HHC Motorsport are the team who can give me a competitive car, and the rest will be up to me!”

“We are delighted that Harry has signed with us for 2013, he has shown real pace throughout 2012 in only his first season in cars, and the move to HHC Motorsport will give Harry the full support he needs to try and take the Championship title. To go out and win his first outright Ginetta Junior race whilst taking the Winter Series title in true style shows how well the team and Harry have gelled in only a short time,” added HHC Team Principal Charlie Kemp.
