Scott McKenna will enter the 2017 Ginetta Junior Championship for his first season of car-racing.
The 15 year old will team up with reigning champions HHC Motorsport, their first driver confirmed for next season.
McKenna enters the series with seven years experience of ice driving race and rally cars in Sweden and Norway.
“I’ve grown up around motorsport and have been aware of Ginetta since I was very young,” said McKenna.
“The Ginetta Junior Championship is definitely the most prominent Junior racing series in the UK and I’ve always wanted to race in it, in order to have the very best start to my sports car racing career.”
HHC Team Owner Charlie Kemp added: “It’s great to have drivers with new and interesting routes into the Ginetta Junior Championship, and ice driving is certainly one!
“We have a good test program planned for 2017 and we hope to get Scott up to speed as fast as possible and challenge for rookie podiums from the outset.”
