New Ginetta GT5 Challenge champion Chadwick eyes next move
New Ginetta GT5 Challenge champion Ollie Chadwick will look to test both GT3 and GT4 machinery ahead of his next move after sealing his first car racing title at Spa.
Chadwick’s two wins from three races in the Ardennes – his 12th from the 16 races so far this term – put him clear in the GT5 points with three races to spare.
Chadwick, 19, has had British GT entries already this year as part of the GPRM Toyota GT4 crew. He is now aiming for a full-time British GT seat, but will also test a Ginetta G55 with a view to moving into the GT4 Supercup series.
“It’s great to get the title wrapped up early as it takes the pressure off,” said Chadwick. “I’ve achieved all I can here now so I’ll be somewhere else next season. British GT is the goal and I’d like to try a GT3 and a GT4 car and see what’s available. I’ve also got a test planned in a G55 as the Ginetta ladder is a good way of progressing as a driver.”
