Kell Joins Reigning Champions Rob Boston Racing For Supercup Bow

1 Mins read

James Kell will make the move from the BRSCC Mazda MX-5 Super Series to the Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup next season with Rob Boston Racing.

Kell will step up to the BTCC support series in only his second year of car-racing competition, following an impressive campaign in the MX-5’s. 

Breaking into the top ten early in the year at Snetterton, the 21 year old fought his way to regular top six finishes as the season developed. 

The Morpeth-based racer’s continued progression was highlighted by a breakthrough podium finish during the season finale at Donington Park.

“2019 will be a learning season for me, a year to understand the car and its capabilities, having not raced with slicks, aero, and a paddle-shift gearbox before,” said Kell.

“It’s going to take some time to adjust my driving, but hopefully I will adapt quickly and become more competitive as the season progresses. 

“I’m thrilled to be a part of the 2019 Supercup, to be in the RBR team driving the G55, and look forward to the exciting challenges ahead.”

Kell is Rob Boston Racing’s first driver for 2019, with the team looking to build on two drivers’ titles in the last three seasons with Tom Wrigley and Charlie Ladell.

“James has completed a season in the extremely competitive MX5 series, and now feels ready and is looking forward to the new challenge,” commented team boss Rob Boston.

“The MX5 and Ginetta are both front engined, rear wheel drive and well balanced machines, so it is a logical progression for him.

“We are really very excited to help and will enjoy watching James’ progression in 2019. Welcome onboard James, it’s going to be epic!“
