Fuller and Wil­mot test Team Hard Ginetta

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

For­mer Bri­tish Tour­ing Car Cham­pi­onship drivers Howard Fuller and Andy Wil­mot tested a Team Hard Ginetta G55 GT4 at Brands Hatch last week as the pair eval­u­ate a cam­paign in Bri­tish GT with Tony Gil­ham’s team.

The pair have been as­so­ci­ated with the squad since its cre­ation in 2012, when they were signed as its first two drivers, but be­tween them have had lim­ited rac­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties over the pre­vi­ous 12 months.

Both got their hands on the G55 for the first time as part of a gen­eral track­day test on the Indy cir­cuit last Tues­day, and are ex­pected to drive the car again dur­ing a semiex­clu­sive test next month.

Fuller and Wil­mot are now in talks about driv­ing one of the G55s with Team Hard – which won the GT4 teams’ ti­tle in Bri­tish GT this year – in 2017.

“The team is very in­ter­ested in try­ing to get the two of us as a pair­ing be­cause it makes a re­ally good story,” said Fuller. “[We were] the first two drivers to race for Team Hard, so to have us back to­gether is a great selling point for the team.”
