Ex BTCC Star Watts Joins Ginetta Supercup

Tim Harvey Driving The Ginetta G55 That Patrick Watts Will Be Racing


Former British Touring Car Championship star Patrick Watts will join Total Control Racing for a guest appearance in this weekend's Michelin Ginetta GT Supercup rounds at Brands Hatch.

Since last competing in the BTCC in the late-nineties, Watts has mainly raced in historic racing, meaning the Ginetta appearance will be his first outing on slick tyres for ten years. The 54 year old will race the G55 that former BTCC sparring partner Tim Harvey competed in earlier this season and will be a popular addition to the paddock as he competes at his local circuit.

Watts said: “It's a great opportunity given to me by TCR and Ginetta but having not raced anything with slicks on for 10 years, I'm looking forward to driving the 2011 Ginetta G55 – which could be different to my 1950 Allard J2!

“I hope to be in the top 10 but I'm sure there are some good drivers out there. To be honest, I've no idea what the cars look like and I've never seen one of the races but I will 'You Tube' Ginetta before the weekend!”

Team Principal Lee Brookes added: “We're absolutely delighted to welcome Patrick to the team and although the Ginetta will be something completely different for him to get used to, we're sure he'll get up to speed quickly. It's been a long time since he was on the BTCC package so it'll be great to see him out there again, we're really looking forward to working with him.”
