Ginetta GT4 Supercup

Huyton Out, Munemann In For Thruxton

1 Mins read

Sean Huyton has been forced to miss this weekend’s Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup action at Thruxton due to a shortfall in budget, a meeting in which Michael Munemann will make his category debut.

Reigning G50 class champion Huyton has started the season with four top ten finishes in the first six races in his Academy Motorsport-run Ginetta G55 GT4, showing potential for a podium finish on more than one occasion.

The 24 year old headed into the season with the chance of completing a unique Ginetta title hat-trick, having won the GT5 Challenge in 2012, however he will unfortunately be sitting on the sidelines this weekend after being unable to raise the budget required to compete.

Munemann meanwhile joins the series with Priocept Racing, joining Dan Norris-Jones as the team expands to a two-car entry. Munemann is believed to be driving the G55 machine raced by James Owen earlier this season.

The 46 year old joins the championship with years of racing experience under his belt, having previously competed in a number of championships including the Portuguese GT Championship, Megane Trophy Eurocup and the Dutch Supercar Challenge.

The Portuguese racer, who finished second in class in the Barcelona 24 Hours in 2012, has been attracted to joining the GT4 Supercup to compete on the UK race circuits, and is expected to also compete at Oulton Park, Silverstone and Brands Hatch later in the season.
