Xen­tek to field four cars in GT4 Su­per­cup

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Ti­tle-win­ning Ginetta GT5 Chal­lenge team Xen­tek Motorsport will launch a four-car as­sault on the GT4 Su­per­cup next sea­son.

The team won the GT5 cham­pi­onship with Ol­lie Chad­wick this year, but will now step up to the Bri­tish Tour­ing Car Cham­pi­onship sup­port cat­e­gory.

Chad­wick com­pleted a toe-inthe-wa­ter week­end in the series for the team at Sil­ver­stone and now the squad’s GT5 rac­ers Jac Con­sta­ble and Alex Tay­lor will move up. The team will also run race win­ner Carl Board­ley in part­ner­ship with the Hot Rod cham­pion’s own team, as well as a fourth driver.

“It [the Su­per­cup] will be the best bet to move in the right way for us with big­ger cars and a higher level cham­pi­onship,” said team co-owner Chris Richards.

“Nick [Hart, team co-owner] has run GT4 cars be­fore with JHR so we’ve got ex­pe­ri­ence. We’ve got the driv­ers and they want to move on and rather than find a new set of driv­ers we will stay on with those we al­ready know.

“We’ll also run Board­ley in co­op­er­a­tion with his own team – he is pro­vid­ing me­chan­ics.”

Xen­tek is likely to con­tinue run­ning cars in the GT5 Chal­lenge, along­side its GT4 ex­pan­sion.
