Total Control Racing set to add British GT4 attack to 2017 plans
Ginetta squad Total Control Racing is poised to make its British GT debut next season with a GT4 Class entry.
TCR wants to field two Ginetta G55s as it looks to expand beyond its current GT4 Supercup and Ginetta Junior sportscar programmes.
The team is headed up by former touring car racer Lee Brookes and has experience in saloon and sportscar racing, having taken titles in the Renault Clio and SEAT Cupra Cups before winning championships in Ginettas.
“We’ve always wanted that link from our junior series into professional GT or touring car racing and GT4 is the best place at the moment,” said Brookes.
“The Ginetta G55 is easily upgradable to GT4 spec – it’s a simple bolt-on splitter and smaller rear wing – so the chassis can be used in both the Supercup and British GT. A lot of the drivers we’ve run like Jonny Adam, Tom Onslow-cole and Alex Macdowall are now successful in GT racing, so it makes sense for us to offer that.”
GT4 Supercup podiumfinisher Callum Pointon has held talks with the team.
