For­mula Ford team Geva Rac­ing ex­pands into sportscars with new Ginetta GT pro­gramme

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Crack For­mula Ford team Geva Rac­ing will ex­pand into GT rac­ing this year with a cam­paign in the Creven­tic En­durance Se­ries.

The Dutch squad has pur­chased an en­durance-spec Ginetta G50 and will cam­paign it in the full pan-Euro­pean Tour­ing­car En­durance con­test, which in­cludes the Sil­ver­stone 24 Hour event in April.

Geva has formed a part­ner­ship with Bed­ford-based TDF En­gi­neer­ing for the project, with the car run­ning un­der the TDF.GEVA ban­ner.

Geva reg­u­lar and Dutch For­mula Ford cham­pion Mel­roy Heemskerk and Sven van Laere are the first two driv­ers con­firmed, with two more set to join the team for the Sil­ver­stone event.

“GT rac­ing is growing and is the purest form of sport­car rac­ing, much like For­mula Ford is the purest sin­gle-seater com­pe­ti­tion, it’s the driv­ers that make the dif­fer­ence,” said Geva’s Nel­son Valken­burg.

“We’ve done some shake­down test­ing with the Ginetta and it’s a highly de­vel­oped car. It should be an ex­cit­ing season.”
