Pointon in as HHC sorts GT4 lineup
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.
