Blendini Motorsport To Run Chrissy Palmer In Ginetta GT5 Challenge


Former Mazda Mk3 Champion Chrissy Palmer will be taking part in the Protyre Motorsport Ginetta GT5 Challenge this weekend at Brands Hatch with British GT regulars Blendini Motorsport

“The opportunity to run a car in the Protyre Motorsport Ginetta GT5 Challenge is great for Blendini Motorsport;” said Tom Roche, Blendini Motorsport owner.

Blendini are currently running an number of cars across multiple championships in the UK and are looking to encourage their current drivers to sample the GT5 Challenge in a view to running a full season in 2014.

“We run over ten cars in the BRSCC Mazda Championship and also a GT3 and GT4 car in British GT so we see GT5 as a great intermediate Championship between the Mazda’s and British GT; especially since the package is a support to the British GT.”

Chrissy has done very well in Mazda racing over the past couple of years and we hope that he can improve over the weekend and surprise a few people – we are looking forward to it.”

“It’s great to see a successful and respected team such as Blendini Motorsport join the Ginetta paddock,” said Ginetta Championships manager Max Gregory. “We hope this is just the start of a successful relationship. Chrissy is a quick driver and it’s certainly going to make things interesting with the series regulars this weekend. Watch this space.”
