Adam Smalley could line up on the Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup grid next season with Elite Motorsport following a successful first test in a Ginetta G55 recently.

Smalley was crowned the 2018 Ginetta Junior champion last month following a brilliant campaign with the Elite team, taking seven wins and ten other podium finishes.

With his prize for winning the title being a season loan of a Ginetta G55 GT4 car for use in the 2019 Supercup, Smalley is assessing the series as an option for next year.

The seventeen year old tested a G55 at Donington Park with Elite, who themselves made their Supercup debuts this season with Harry King and took multiple race victories. 

“In karting I had driven on slick tyres but it was nothing like that – the grip level was unbelievable and the power was amazing,” Smalley told Autosport.

“It was really good. That’s the way we’re looking at going, but it’s all down to budget. It’s still on the touring car package with ITV4 coverage and that’s attractive for sponsors.”
