Rob Bos­ton signs karter for Ginetta at­tack

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Rob Bos­ton Rac­ing will move into the Ginetta Ju­nior Cham­pi­onship for the first time this year, run­ning karter Greg John­son in the se­ries.

The team has pre­vi­ously raced in the Ginetta GT4 Su­per­cup with Tom Wrigley and it was through him that this deal came about. RBR has also fielded mul­ti­ple Mazda MX-5 and Lotus Elise cars in club classes.

John­son has raced at the Red­nal kart track, which Wrigley owns, and he rec­om­mended the 14-year-old should switch to Ju­niors.

“He will prob­a­bly be the least ex­pe­ri­enced driver on the grid as he has done very lit­tle kart­ing so he’ll be go­ing straight in at the deep end,” said Bos­ton. “We have no im­me­di­ate plans for any other driv­ers in the se­ries, we’ve not ac­tively looked for driv­ers – Greg came to us.

“The Ju­nior car is like a scaled-down Ginetta Su­per­cup car. It’s a nice car and I’m ex­cited for this sea­son.”
