Late Ginetta Supercup Move For Radical Ace Bradley Smith


Four-time Radical champion Bradley Smith will compete in the Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup this season with his family team Mectech Motorsport.

The 24 year old only stepped up to car racing in 2011, but has made quite an impression winning the Radical Clubman Cup and Supersport class in 2012, the Radical SR3 Challenge in 2013 and the Radical European Masters crown last season.

Smith’s successes in 2013 earnt him the Sunoco Challenge prize drive in the Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona the following year, the Essex-based racer carding a top ten prototype class finish.

Smith was initially signed to compete in the new LMP3 class of the European Le Mans Series this year in a Greaves Motorsport-run Ginetta-Nissan, but that has not come to fruition with the team postponing their entry to 2016.

Instead, Smith will remain in one-make racing in the Ginetta GT4 Supercup, with his Mectech team adding the championship to its existing portfolio of Radical racing, karting and BRDC Formula 4.

“We are really looking forward to the challenge, it’s been a last minute deal and I would like to thank Lawrence Tomlinson and Jamie Robinson for their help in making it happen,” said Smith.

“It’s going to be tough as we won’t have much testing before the first race, but I am sure we can hit the ground running!”

Smith is the latest exciting addition to the Supercup grid this week, with Mitchell Hale and Michael Caine announced in the last couple of days to join the likes of Carl Breeze, Tom Oliphant, Will Burns and Ollie Jackson.
