2013 and 2014 Castle Combe Formula Ford 1600 champion Adam Higgins will enter the Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup this season with new team Hurricane Motorsport.
The 30 year old has some experience in a Ginetta GT racer, having taken a G50 to a pair of podium finishes in a one-off outing in the Welsh Sports and Saloon Championship.
The team is named after Higgins’ father Bob, who was named ‘Hurricane’ in his stock car days, and will also race the G55 in the Castle Combe GT Championship.
Hurricane Motorsport is the latest new team to enter the Supercup, joining the grid alongside Xentek Motorsport, Team HARD and Tecserv UK.
“The Supercup attracts me because of the high profile and the fact they are so tight on the regulations,” Higgins told Motorsport News.
“Formula Ford is getting a bit lapse with regulations – there seems to be some very powerful engines. The Supercup was very attractive because they are very fast cars and look mega.
“We bought a G50 in July and did one meeting with it. That gave me the bug – it was the most fun I had in a car for a while.
“I don’t know how I’m going to fare against everyone else. If I get a top five finish I will be overjoyed and if I get a podium then I would be absolutely ecstatic.”
