F4 squad Richardson to Ginetta Ju­niors

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Bri­tish F4 team Richardson Rac­ing will en­ter the Ginetta Ju­nior Cham­pi­onship in 2017.

Richardson has most re­cently com­peted in the For­mula Ford and Bri­tish F4 cham­pi­onships, although it did run a pro­gramme in the 2016 Ginetta GT5 Chal­lenge.

It will now ex­pand to run a team in the Ju­nior cham­pi­onship, which is open to driv­ers aged 14-17.

Team boss Gwyn Richardson said: “In the past 12 months, we have tested a num­ber of young driv­ers in our F4 car who are look­ing to get onto the mo­tor­sport lad­der but who aren’t cur­rently old enough to race in the se­ries.

“With that in mind, we thought it was the ideal time for us to look at what op­tions were avail­able if we were to in­tro­duce a Ju­nior pro­gramme for young driv­ers like this, and there is noth­ing to beat the Ginetta se­ries.”

The team is also con­sid­er­ing an ex­pan­sion into the GT4 divi­sion of the Bri­tish GT Cham­pi­onship for 2017, and plans to test driv­ers through­out the win­ter in an As­ton Martin Van­tage.
