Freddie Lee Announces Ginetta Switch With Hillspeed

1 Mins read

Ford Fiesta Junior Championship front-runner Freddie Lee has confirmed a mid-season move in to the Ginetta Junior Championship.

Lee, who sits sixth in the Fiesta championship, has decided to make the switch after a productive test day with Ginetta at the Bedford Autodrome, where Lee managed to set some quite impressive times in his first time in the car. He will join Pepe Massot and Keith Donegan at Hillspeed, starting with the upcoming rounds at Snetterton.

Freddie commented: “I'm a little sad to be leaving the Junior Fiesta championship as I have met some great people; it's a good starter series as the cars feel familiar as they are based on a road car. But I have to think of the bigger picture and my long term objectives and the Junior Ginetta championship provides not only a great race car to drive on track but also delivers greater exposure and sponsor appeal. I'm looking forward to working with the Hillspeed team and I'm very excited to be making this initial appearance at Snetterton, I can't wait to get out testing next week.”

Hillspeed team principal Richard Ollerenshaw added: “Freddie's reputation precedes him and we are delighted to have this opportunity to work together. Obviously a Ginetta is very different from the cars Freddie has experienced to date, but he clearly has the ability to make the transition. Freddie will be joining team mates Keith Donegan and Pepe Massot and I'm confident that this line up will produce some good results for both the boys and Hillspeed”.
