Ginetta GT4 Supercup

Silverstone Supercup Debut For Clio Ace Cook

1 Mins read

Renault UK Clio Cup title contender Josh Cook will make a maiden appearance in the Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup at Silverstone this weekend.

Cook, who has taken five wins and four other podium finishes so far this season en-route to second in the Clio Cup standings, will run in a second Ginetta G55 GT4 for SV Racing alongside Supercup front-runner and fellow KX Akademy member David Pittard.

With the Clio Cup taking a weekend off from the BTCC package at Silverstone, Cook has seized the opportunity to clock up more track mileage and experience new machinery as he assesses his options for 2015 and beyond.

“My ultimate aim is to race touring cars, but the Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup is definitely an option for next season and going down the GT racing route is definitely a possibility for the future,” said Cook.

“I’m not expecting any miracles and there are no specific targets, but it will be nice to go racing and get away from all the politics we’ve experience in the UK Clio Cup recently.”

With the G55 he’s using this weekend currently at Spa Francorchamps in Belgium for testing, Cook won’t get the chance to get a run in the rear-wheel drive machine before official pre-event testing on Friday.

“I’m going to give it a really good go but, having never raced a rear-wheel-drive car before, it will be a learning curve,” he added. “The Ginetta G55 is quicker and more powerful than a Clio Cup car, but any half-decent driver should be able to adapt quickly between the two.”
