Kyle Hornby has moved to front-running outfit JHR Developments as he targets a title challenge in his second season in the Ginetta Junior Championship.
A hugely impressive debut campaign for Hornby saw him take a top ten overall championship finish, having secured overall podium finishes at Croft and Silverstone – the latter coming after he picked up pole position in qualifying.
In the Rookie Cup, Hornby picked up eleven podium finishes, more than any of his adversaries, and two class wins en-route to third in the standings.
Hornby’s racecraft was also showcased by the fact he gained 75 places from his grid positions in the 20 race calendar, more than any other driver.
With those accolades under his belt, Hornby is aiming for the front of the grid this season as he switches from R&J Motorsport to 2014 champions JHR.
“I can’t wait to get back out on track, this winter seems to have been one of the longest of my career!” said Hornby.
“I had a great debut season with Ginetta in 2015, and this year I intend to be a major contender for the Championship title. I want to make my mark Ginetta history books!”
Hornby is JHR’s fourth confirmed driver for 2016, joining Seb Priaulx, Cameron Roberts and Seb Perez.
