Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Ginetta Ju­nior podium fin­isher Tom Wood will switch to the ti­tle-win­ning HHC Motorsport squad for this sea­son.

The 15-year-old took two podi­ums in the cat­e­gory last sea­son with Elite Motorsport as he fin­ished 11th in the stand­ings. That was his first sea­son of car rac­ing af­ter win­ning the now-de­funct For­mula Kart Stars Ju­nior ti­tle in 2015.

HHC driv­ers have claimed the Ginetta crown four times in the last five years, in­clud­ing last sea­son with Will Tre­gurtha.

Team boss Char­lie Kemp said: “Be­fore he did the Ginetta Ju­nior Schol­ar­ship in 2015 we had a test with Tom so we have pre­vi­ous ex­pe­ri­ence of work­ing with him. I think he should be a con­sis­tent podium fin­isher and hope­fully be in the cham­pi­onship hunt.”

Wood joins the al­ready-con­firmed Char­lie Digby, Scott Mckenna and Ruben Del Sarte in HHC’S line-up.
