Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

HHC Mo­tor­sport is close to agree­ing driv­ers for its planned sec­ond Bri­tish GT4 en­try af­ter sign­ing Cal­lum Poin­ton.

The for­mer BRDC F4 cham­pion team is plan­ning to run two Ginetta G55 GT4S in the Bri­tish cham­pi­onship next year, and is await­ing con­fir­ma­tion of its en­try.

HHC has al­ready signed Ginetta Ju­nior stars Will Tre­gurtha and Stu­art Mid­dle­ton for the first car, and has now en­listed Poin­ton for the sec­ond.

Poin­ton has worked his way up Ginetta’s lad­der, fin­ish­ing third in the GT5 Chal­lenge in 2015 be­fore tak­ing sixth in the GT4 Su­per­cup this sea­son.

“Our GT4 pro­gramme is tak­ing shape nicely and with some­body of Cal­lum’s abil­ity, we are con­fi­dent of a good 2017 cam­paign,” said HHC boss Char­lie Kemp.

“It would be a dream come true to have a two-car en­try ac­cepted into Bri­tish GT. It is a tes­ta­ment to how hard the team has worked that we can fill a two-car team hav­ing only an­nounced the pro­gramme two weeks ago.”

HHC is still in talks for its fourth driver, but one name linked to the pro­gramme is Ginetta Jr grad­u­ate Char­lie Fagg. The 17-year-old raced a SEAT Leon at Anglesey last week­end as he gains sig­na­tures aim­ing for his In­ter­na­tional C li­cence that is re­quired for Bri­tish GT.
