Lanan Rac­ing re-signs Reed and Foster for Bri­tish GT4 at­tack

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Top Bri­tish GT4 squad Lanan Rac­ing has re-signed ris­ing star Alex Reed and Joey Foster for a sec­ond shot at the 2017 crown.

Reed and For­mula Ford 1600 con­vert Foster have starred over the sec­ond half of this sea­son, tak­ing a break­through vic­tory at Spa-fran­cor­champs and a pole and podium fin­ish last time out at Snet­ter­ton. They are third in the driv­ers’ stand­ings.

Lanan has now bought a Ginetta G55 from the fac­tory, hav­ing only had this year’s car on rental af­ter its deal to buy a Porsche Cay­man Club­sport GT4 fell through ear­lier in the year.

Team head Gra­ham John­son said: “With Alex and Joey we know we’ve got a mega driver pair­ing and we’ll be go­ing for the GT4 cham­pi­onship next sea­son, no doubt.

“If it hadn’t been for the car prob­lems at the start of this year, where we didn’t know whether or not we’d be get­ting the Cay­mans and then hav­ing to adapt to the Ginetta at late no­tice, we’d have been in the ti­tle fight more this sea­son.

“It’s been a learn­ing year for both driv­ers, as Joey has had to adapt to the ex­tra weight trans­fer and han­dling of a GT4 car, and as he’s adapted his driv­ing style Alex has been able to learn along­side him. They com­ple­ment each other.”
