Chapman to replace Fuller in Autoaid/RCIB Insurance Racing Ginetta

1 Mins read

Matt Chapman has been announced as a late addition to the Team HARD run Autoaid/RCIB Insurance Racing team in the British GT Championship.

The 2016 Ginetta GT5 Challenge runner up has taken the #63 Ginetta G55 GT4 seat previously announced as Howard Fuller’s and will partner Sam Webster.

Chapman has already sampled the GT4 at a test at Oulton Park and is quickly learning to adjust from the G40 used in the GT5 Challenge.

“I’m absolutely over the moon to be racing in British GT this season; it’s an amazing opportunity,” he said. “I’ve not spent that long in the car but could feel the difference straight away. The GT4 has more than double the horsepower and more grip, so will take some getting used to. 

 “The opposition also looks very tough this season with a few drivers stepping down from GT3, but the team are clearly very motivated to retain their Teams’ title. Sam and I are equally up for the challenge and expect to be mixing it at the sharp it.”

Team boss Tony Gilham said Fuller would be part of the team’s plans in 2017, but not in the British GT Championship.
