Pittard Seeking GT3 Drive In 2016


David Pittard has told The Checkered Flag that he is hoping to make a progression into GT3 competition next season.

The 2014 Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup vice-champion made a return to the category last weekend at Silverstone thanks to a last minute deal with Team LNT.

Pittard impressed to take a pair of top six finishes in a brand new, untested G55 GT4, but admits he’s not looking to return to the championship next season.

The 23 year old has set his sights on a progression into GT3 machinery, as a Pro driver in a Pro-Am partnership in British GT or a similar championship.

“It’s still early doors for me in regards to 2016 following the British GT finale recently, but I’ve put myself in the shop window and spoken to all the team managers I could get my hands on really,” Pittard told TCF.

“While I haven’t raced much this season, I’ve had a couple of strong outings with Ginetta in the USA and in the Supercup and I’ve been kept my eye in working with Pure McLaren coaching in their performance academy and track days.

“I’m ready to come back next season and really prove myself as the full package. I hope to be there to suit the right AM driver who can work with me and my budget, as I feel GT3 is the next step for me in my career.”
