Reigning Ginetta Junior Ireland champion Andy O'Brien has announced his participation in the 2012 Total Quartz Ginetta GT5 Challenge.

O'Brien joins the series after two hugely successful seasons in Ireland, where he finished runner up to Niall Murray in the 2010 Junior series before going on to win the championship last season. O'Brien's prize for winning the title is the lease of a Ginetta G40 for the 2012 Challenge season, as well as having his entry and registration fees paid for the British GT/F3 supporting series.

O'Brien said: “I've been working extremely hard since the end of last season trying to source sponsorship to contest the Ginetta GT Supercup, however as it required a budget in excess of £100,000 it proved to be too tall an order and unfortunately we just fell short.

“However, with the Ginetta Challenge racing at all the same tracks as the GT Supercup, it seemed a more realistic option, as the budget is a fraction of that needed for the GT Supercup. I believe this will hopefully prove to be a strong stepping stone on the ladder for me in the future.

“I hope to win the Ginetta Challenge within the next two years and progress to the TOCA package and up through the Ginetta ranks in the G50 and then on to the G55 Championship in the coming years.”
