Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Ginetta race-win­ner David Pit­tard will join Lanan Rac­ing for a Bri­tish GT4 cam­paign this year, as a late re­place­ment for Joey Foster.

Pit­tard will share the team’s G55 GT4 with Alex Reed, af­ter Foster was forced to with­draw from his plans to con­test this sea­son due to busi­ness com­mit­ments.

Pit­tard joins Bri­tish GT off the back of sev­eral strong sea­sons in sportscars. He was run­ner-up in the Ginetta GT4 Su­per­cup in 2014, when a mem­ber of the KX Akademy pro­gramme.

“I’m ex­cited to be join­ing Lanan, with their pedi­gree in sin­gle­seaters and pro­to­types,” said Pit­tard. “Their im­pres­sive de­but sea­son in Bri­tish GT [in which Reed and Foster fin­ished sixth in the points with one win at Spa] un­der­lines their en­gi­neer­ing and devel­op­ment skills.”

Lanan’s Gra­ham John­son added: “Hav­ing to re­place Joey was al­ways go­ing to be a tough task, but af­ter dis­cus­sions with driv­ers, I felt David and Alex would be an awe­some pairing.”
