German born karting ace Sophia Floersch today completes the 2015 KICK Start Energy Ginetta Junior Championship line-up at Boroughbridge-based team HHC Motorsport.
Floresh has her sights firmly set on challenging for the highly competitive Rookie Championship, and a proven racer, she already has the capability. At the tender age of 14, Floersch has already amassed seven competitive years of international karting, having been crowned SAKC Bambini Champion and European Easykart Champion in that time, along with a plethora of podium finishes along the way.
The KICK Start Ginetta Junior Championship is fast becoming the series of choice for naturally talented, fast, and ambitious karters looking to progress into sports cars, with Floersch fitting that profile perfectly.
Charlie Kemp, Commercial Director of HHC Motorpsort said; “I am very happy to be welcoming Sophia to our team for 2015. From the first day we tested with Sophia we knew she was something special. We will be mounting a strong challenge for the Rookie Championship, along with aiming for overall podiums by the end of the season.”
Floersch added; “I am very happy to be taking part in the KICK Start Energy Ginetta Junior Championship with HHC Motorsport. The team is one of the top teams in British Motorsport, and we have seen this already in some tests we have completed as we were able to be very fast.
“I am looking forward to some hard work throughout the season and it is my aim to show some good racing during the year. I am excited to be in such a strong championship and am looking forward to getting to know many of the famous British racing circuits.”
Throughout her debut year, Floersch will be guided by her management team, Harry Soden and Gary Catt of Infinity Sports Management. Soden said of their new association with HHC Motorsport; “We are delighted to be working with HHC Motorsport and feel it is a perfect place for Sophia to start her car racing career.”
Floersch will be joining her team mates, Patrik Matthiesen and current Winter Series Champion Jamie Caroline at the opening round of the 2015 KICK Start Ginetta Junior Championship at Brands Hatch from 3rd-5th April.
