Ginetta GT4 Supercup

Six Newcomers Enter Supercup For Silverstone

1 Mins read

The Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup grid will be at a season-high nineteen this weekend at Silverstone, with a host of new entries joining the grid for its penultimate meeting of the 2014 season.

The majority of the new entries come as Ginetta’s trials its new Pro-Am format for the first time, ahead of the introduction of a second class for gentlemen drivers in 2015.

Four drivers will be competing in the ‘Am class’ this weekend, with only one, Fraser Robertson, having competed in the category before after making his debut earlier this year with an appearance at Croft in a G50.

Joining him at Silverstone will be two drivers who have campaigned Ginetta G55 GT4’s in the British GT Championship this year, Ade Barwick and Paul McNeilly. Both drivers will run with the teams that have taken them to GT4 class podium finishes this season, Team Parker and Fox Motorsport respectively.

They will be up against Ginetta GT5 Challenge regular David Pattison, who makes the big step up from a G20 to a G55 with Tolman Motorsport.

Outside of the Chairman’s Cup, also stepping up from the Challenge is Will Moore with Academy Motorsport, competing in the G55 used by fellow graduate Dennis Strandberg last time out at Rockingham.

Joining Barwick and McNeilly in moving across from the GT4 class of British GT too is Aleksander Schjerpen. Fresh from cruelly being denied a maiden class win at the Donington Park finale two weeks ago, the Norwegian could well spring a surprise with Century Motorsport.

The final new entry for the weekend is Renault UK Clio Cup front-runner Josh Cook, who makes his Ginetta racing debut in a second SV Racing G55.
