Gamble, Pointon To Lead TCR In 2014 GT5 Challenge

1 Mins read

Total Control Racing will continue in the Ginetta GT5 Challenge for the 2014 season, with George Gamble and Callum Pointon leading their attack.

Gamble will embark on a full season in the GT5 Challenge after a successful one-off appearance during the final round at Donington in 2013, having previously been a front-runner in Ginetta Juniors and the Protyre Formula Renault Winter Series in 2012.

“I’m really looking forward to it, the Challenge is a good championship and the racing is so close”, said Gamble.

“We did that last round at Donington last year with Lee [Brookes] and it went really well, he’s put together a good deal for us and he’s set me the target of trying to win every race! I don’t think we’ll quite manage that, but I’ll give it a good go.

“I want to try and win the title and then maybe step-up and do the final round of the G55 [Michelin Ginetta GT Supercup], that’s the plan anyway.”

Staffordshire youngster Pointon had a strong maiden campaign with TCR last season on his way to seventh in the final standings, and is aiming for a top-three finish in 2014.

“My first year with TCR was absolutely amazing”, said Pointon. “We went into it just as a learning year but we ticked all the boxes along the way, had a cracking season and ended up seventh in the championship – we weren’t aiming that high at all when the year started.

“I should be trying to finish in the top three, I’m aiming as high as possible.” 

Team boss Lee Brookes said: “We’re delighted to have both George and Callum on board again, it’s a fantastic way to start 2014 for TCR. I really think we’ll have one of the strongest and best line-ups out there, George will definitely start the season as a championship favourite and Callum should be right up there fighting for podiums as well.

“Callum really came on strong last season, he did a fantastic job in his first year and improved massively to become a really consistent front-runner. With a team-mate like George to help push him on, we’re confident he can be a top three regular.”
