Will Tregurtha and Stuart Middleton will turn from rivals to team-mates next season after being announced as HHC Motorsport’s first ever driver pairing for the British GT Championship.
The two teenage racers fought it out for this year’s Ginetta Junior Championship, with Tregurtha prevailing to give HHC their fourth drivers title in the last five years in the series.
The Yorkshire-based team, who won the Ginetta GT4 Supercup crown in 2014, are expanding their GT racing portfolio this season after recently electing to end their single-seater programme.
For both Tregurtha and Middleton it will mark a first step into endurance racing after two years each in the Juniors – Middleton being a former Scholarship and Winter Series winner.
“This is a major commitment from all of us – team and drivers – and a big challenge. It is a step up for us into long-distance GT racing and it is the first time that two drivers will move straight from Ginetta Junior racing into British GT,” said team boss Charlie Kemp.
“We are sure that the spotlight will be on them but they have both proved to have plenty of ability and old heads on young shoulders and hence we believe that, together, we will be a major force in the GT4 class next year.
“We have chosen to run a Ginetta G55 in GT4 and it is a car that we know inside out thanks to our time in the Ginetta GT4 Supercup. It is our intention to be at the front of the GT4 grid at the first round and to challenge for the title.”
