Charlie Digby is teaming up with reigning champions HHC Motorsport for his Ginetta Junior Championship debut this weekend at Snetterton.
While it will mark a first appearance in the main series for the 15 year old, he made his car-racing bow in the Winter Series last November at the same circuit.
On that weekend, Digby secured three finishes across the four races, with a best result of seventeenth in the final encounter around the 300 circuit.
Alongside that, the Hampshire-based racer has been gaining experience in his G40 with an extensive testing programme at circuits including Thruxton, Croft and Silverstone.
Digby will make it a five car entry from HHC as the series returns from its summer break, joining Will Tregurtha, Lewis Brown, Tom Gamble and Charlie Fagg.
“I have always been passionate about cars, so I’m looking forward to getting behind the wheel now and not just watching from the sidelines,” said Digby.
“The guys at HHC Motorsport have been amazing in getting me this far so I want to go out there and do them proud.”
The addition of Digby to the grid and the return of Anthony Ayres means that despite the loss of Cameron Roberts, there is set to be a season-high matching 22 cars in action this weekend.
