Reigning Production Touring Car champion Gary Duckman will leave the series for the 2013 season, migrating into the cockpit of a Ginetta G40 in the Ginetta GT5 Challenge.

Duckman clinched the title in 2012, scoring wins and 12 further podiums and – after a club racing career that also includes success in one make Porsche racing looks upon the move into the GT5 Challenge as a step upwards.

“Following 15 years of karting and nine years of saloon car racing, I now have two club championships under my belt and think it’s time to move on to bigger things,” he said. “I am running this season with EJM Preparation, who bring a wealth of knowledge and experience with them from previous Ginetta seasons, along with BTCC and WTCC expertise, so I think we are well placed to be challenging for wins in the Ginetta GT5 Challenge.”

Duckman is aiming – in the longer term – for a return to the Ginetta GT Supercup, where he made a one-off appearance at the final round of the 2012 season at Brands Hatch at the wheel of a Ginetta G50.

“The Ginetta GT5 Challenge is a great feeder series for the Ginetta GT Supercup, which is where I am aiming to be in the next couple of years. My sponsors are keen for me to deliver results and expressed interest in the Ginetta GT Supercup if we have a successful 2013 campaign, so we will be pushing hard to do well.”
