Reign­ing Scot­tish BMW Compact Cup cham­pion Steven Dailly is eye­ing a move to the Ginetta GT5 Chal­lenge.

The 23-year-old en­joyed a dom­i­nant sea­son in 2015, win­ning all 16 races and was also crowned the SMRC’S Cham­pion of Cham­pi­ons in only his se­cond full year of rac­ing cars.

He is now tar­get­ing a move to the Ginetta cat­e­gory with his fam­ily-run KC Mo­tor­sport squad.

“I tested the car at Sil­ver­stone and loved it,” said Dailly. “It’s go­ing to be a steep learn­ing curve as I’ve only raced at Thrux­ton, Oul­ton Park and Don­ing­ton Park of the English tracks. But I’m a fighter and will al­ways try my best.

“I’m def­i­nitely aim­ing for the top three and am con­fi­dent I can be up there.”

Dailly’s ul­ti­mate aim is Le Mans: “The plan is to get to Le Mans level and this is the start­ing point. I was de­lighted to win the ti­tle this year and now want to move on.”
