R&J Motorsport Sign Nicosia And Hornby For Ginetta Juniors

1 Mins read

R&J Motorsport have signed Geri Nicosia and Kyle Hornby for their second season in the Kick Start Energy Ginetta Junior Championship.

Family outfit R&J was formed last year to run brothers Ryan and Jonny Hadfield in the BTCC support series, with Ben Pearson also competing with the team.

Nicosia continues with the team after making his Ginetta debut with them in the Winter Series last November, the 2014 BRSCC Fiesta Junior champion notching a podium finish in only his fourth race.

“I am really excited to join the KICK Start Energy Ginetta Junior Championship and begin the next chapter of my motorsport career,” said Nicosia.

“It’s obviously an incredibly competitive series thanks to its position as a training ground for the BTCC and GT racers of the future so here’s hoping we can prove our might in year one.”

Former Super One Junior TKM karter Hornby meanwhile will be making his car-racing debut having got his first taste of Ginetta’s during the Scholarship competition in October.

“The time feels right to take my motorsport career to the next level by graduating from a five and a half year karting career into sports cars,” commented Hornby.

“R&J Motorsport have a proven track record despite being a relatively new team to the Ginetta Junior paddock and I look forward to working with them.”
