Ginetta Junior racer Wood moves to title-winning HHC squad for sophomore season
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.
