Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Wil­liam Phillips will swap from Ginetta to As­ton Martin ma­chin­ery for next year’s Bri­tish GT4 at­tack af­ter join­ing the Macmil­lan Rac­ing team.

The 22-year-old will han­dle Macmil­lan’s Van­tage GT4 along­side an as-yet un­named team-mate. Phillips is the team’s sec­ond sign­ing, af­ter con­firm­ing that Jack Mitchell will grad­u­ate to its new GT3 pro­gramme, also in an As­ton Martin.

Phillips shared a Team Hardrun Ginetta G55 with Jor­dan Stilp last year. The pair fin­ished third in the GT4 Sil­ver Cup class.

“I re­ally en­joyed the As­ton, it’s a good all-round car and very well en­gi­neered,” said Phillips. “We’re tar­get­ing race wins and the cham­pi­onship next year. I like the fact Macmil­lan are look­ing to cre­ate a GT lad­der with its GT3 plans too. Hope­fully we can progress as a unit.”
