Kart­ing ace Crees to Ginetta

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Henry Sur­tees Chal­lenge run­ner-up Michael Crees will grad­u­ate into car rac­ing this year, tak­ing part in the Ginetta Rac­ing Driv­ers’ Club Plus.

The 33-year-old has four years of kart­ing ex­pe­ri­ence but has never pre­vi­ously raced a car. He will race for Team wan­t2race in the series, which will split away from the GT5 Chal­lenge for four of its six rounds.

“I’m a happy-go-lucky guy who just loves rac­ing, with some fan­tas­tic re­sults re­cently against some of the best kart driv­ers in the world and com­ing sec­ond in the re­cent Henry Sur­tees Chal­lenge,” said Crees. “We are look­ing for a suc­cess­ful start to my mo­tor rac­ing ca­reer and be­lieve the GRDC+ is a great step­ping stone and plat­form to learn the ropes and gain more ex­pe­ri­ence.”
