Rob Boston Racing Targeting Supercup Expansion In 2016


Rob Boston has told The Checkered Flag that his eponymous team is looking to run four cars in the Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup next season, and challenge for both the outright drivers’ championship and the AM class honours.

The Rob Boston Racing outfit entered the championship for the first time this season, initially running Boston himself for a one-off meeting at Donington Park, before Tom Wrigley, Jordan Stilp and Fraser Robertson joined their ranks over the second half of the season.

Boston, a former race-winner himself in the category in 2013, took a top six finish, while the partnership with Wrigley proved immediately fruitful with race victories at Snetterton and Knockhill, plus pole position at Silverstone.

It was at Silverstone that Stilp made his Supercup debut, taking a second place finish on his maiden weekend as part of four top five finishes in a five race stint – with Boston expressing his pride at the team’s front-running results.

“We’re delighted with the results over the second half of the season,” he said. “We saw that Tom [Wrigley] had potential early in the year and we won on our first weekend together, so the future looked bright from the outset.

“We’ve got a brilliant relationship, we love working with him, he’s shown on track he’s a very quick racing driver and he’s a very exciting prospect for next season.

“We worked with Jordan years ago, he had his very first car-race with us in Mazdas like five years ago, so the chance to work together again was one we didn’t want to miss. We knew he was very good and he’s shown that by being straight on the pace.”

Boston feels the key to their immediate success is the small, close knit nature of the team: “It’s not just business for us, we all really enjoy working together, we’re passionate about what we do and it’s a really exciting team we’ve got together.”

After running three G55’s in the final two meetings of the season, Boston says the team are ready to expand to a four car line-up next season: “We’re hoping to run a pair of drivers in each class of the championship,” he concluded.

“Hopefully Jordan can come back and have a full run with us, though his limit will be finding the budget over the winter, while Tom is already well along the way to getting full sponsorship together for a championship challenge.

“We’re hoping to run a couple of Amateurs as well, and hopefully challenge for that class title too. We’re here for business next season.”
