Will Palmer is set to contest his first full season of motorsport in 2012 after announcing a deal to compete in the Ginetta Junior Championship with HHC Motorsport.

The 15 year old made his debut in the series at Snetterton last year and went on to complete in two further events towards the end of the campaign, picking up a best result of eighth with the Hillspeed team. He will now embark on his first full campaign and heads into it in confident mood after strong runs in recent pre-season testing.

Palmer said: “I’m really excited to be doing my first full season of Ginetta Juniors with HHC Motorsport, having raced in several meetings last year where I learnt a lot, and now I am looking to build on that experience this season, with a target of fighting for the top six positions in the championship.”

Charlie Kemp, Team Principal at HHC Motorsport, commented: “We're delighted to have Will onboard. He's done three days of testing with us at Brands Hatch, Snetterton and Donington Park and we've watched him really come on as a driver, and we're confident he'll be challenging for podiums this season.”

Will's father Jonathan Palmer added: “Ginetta Juniors is an excellent series; the cars look good, are safe, fast enough and reliable.  It's also very competitive, so Will was inevitably towards the back of the field last year.  However he is very determined and has already proved quicker than me in his race car!  HHC are a very nice, motivated team and I think top six results are realistic this season.”
