Tre­gurtha con­tem­plates GT4 step af­ter ti­tle

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Newly crowned Ginetta Ju­nior cham­pion Wil­liam Tre­gurtha is eye­ing a move up to the GT4 Su­per­cup next sea­son.

The 16-year-old wrapped up the ti­tle with two races to spare at Sil­ver­stone last week­end and is now con­sid­er­ing his 2017 plans.

“We’ve got a bunch of op­tions,” he said. “Ob­vi­ously the Ginetta Su­per­cup is prob­a­bly the big­gest of them at the minute and I’d like to do that. That is prob­a­bly what I’ll do but we do have other things go­ing.”

Tre­gurtha has be­come the fourth HHC Mo­tor­sport driver to win the ti­tle in the last five years and team boss Char­lie Kemp said: “It’s not just con­sis­tency that’s won it. If he’s not had the abil­ity to win be­cause some­thing has gone wrong or some­thing has hap­pened – as it does in Ginetta Ju­niors – he’s been able to keep his head, and that’s re­ally been some­thing very im­pres­sive.”

Tre­gurtha added: “I can’t de­scribe how it feels, I’m just in shock, and I can’t be­lieve that I’ve done it.”
