Fletcher joins Ginetta GT5 with BTCC team

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

The younger brother of BTCC new­comer and Emmerdale ac­tor Kelvin Fletcher will grad­u­ate into the Ginetta GT5 Chal­lenge this sea­son with Power Maxed Rac­ing.

Bray­den Fletcher, 19 from Old­ham, will con­test the full sea­son in the Bri­tish Gt-sup­port class, hav­ing fin­ished fourth in the Mighty Mi­nis Cham­pi­onship last sea­son.

The deal means the Power Maxed team will field both Fletch­ers, with the team also run­ning Kelvin’s Chevro­let Cruze in the BTCC.

Bray­den Fletcher said: “Ginetta has a well-pub­li­cised his­tory of pro­duc­ing top driv­ers and, for an as­pir­ing rac­ing driver like my­self, the GT5 Chal­lenge is the per­fect plat­form. It has large and com­pet­i­tive grids and to race in sup­port of both Bri­tish GT and the BTCC [for two rounds] was too good to miss.”
