Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 Supercup gearing up to make their mark

The Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 Supercup will crown new champions in both the Pro and Am classes this year, and the journey to doing just is set to begin this weekend (April 6/7) at Brands Hatch.

Captivating at almost every turn in 2018, Ginetta’s flagship championship has become a proving ground for some of the UK’s top motorsport talent, and the class of 2019 are primed and ready to make their mark.

With Charlie Ladell not returning to defend his title, Rob Boston Racing have turned to 2016 runner-up Will Burns to spearhead their line-up alongside former Britcar Endurance front-runner Simon Rudd.

There is a Britcar connection over at Team HARD too as Tom Barley steps into the GT4 category after partnering Rudd last year. Barley will be joined in the Team HARD stable by former BTCC and Renault UK Clio Cup competitor Mike Epps, who is making his debut in Ginetta machinery.

Harry King and Elite Motorsport proved to be a tour-de-force last year and King could yet be a threat once more along with rookie Fin Green, three-time winner Tom Hibbert and Carl Shield.

Having triumphed in the Am category with Michael Crees last year, Century Motorsport are bidding to make it back-to-back titles starting this weekend and boast a strong driver line-up.

Jack Oliphant, brother of former champion and now BTCC racer Tom Oliphant, has stepped up whilst 2017 British Rallycross title winner Nathan Heathcote has elected to swap dirt for tarmac and tackle circuit racing.

Dan Kirby, Lee Frost, Lucky Khera, James Kell, Paul Taylor, Darron Lewis and Carl Garnett round out the impressive list of Am competitors for this weekend’s opening event, and all can’t be discounted from prevailing come Sunday evening.

This weekend will see a total of two 24-lap duels take place. For more information on the Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 Supercup’s opening event of the 2019 season, including links to timetable and live timing, click here.
