1 Mins read

Benjamin Wallace has been confirmed as the latest car-racing rookie to join the Ginetta Junior Championship for 2014, competing with series front-runners Hillspeed.

Wallace joins the series with experience from competing in karting across Europe, including the UK, Germany and Italy. His previous successes include winning the 2011 KF3 Silver Trophy in Germany, and finishing third in the 2010 Cadet DMV Kart Championship.

“My goal for the first year in the Ginetta Junior Championship is to learn as much as I can about the cars and the circuits, so that I can challenge for the championship title in 2015,” said Wallace.

Wallace is the third signing for the upcoming campaign for 2010 and 2011 series champions Hillspeed, with fellow series newcomers Harry Mailer and Pedro Cardoso confirmed in the Derbyshire-based outfit’s line-up.

“We are really please to confirm our association with Benjamin for the forthcoming season,” added team principal Richard Ollerenshaw. “When we worked together late last year we were very impressed with Benjamin’s driving and the progression that he made in a very short period.

“His overall understanding, coupled with a willingness to learn will stand him in a good position to utilise 2014 as a foundation year to build a career on.”
