Team LNT are preparing to defend their 2014 title at this year’s Henry Surtees Foundation Brooklands Team Challenge on June 30, with a team of Ginetta Junior racers past and present ready to race in the highly coveted annual event.
Ginetta-Nissan LMP3 factory driver Charlie Robertson, a successful karter and twice Ginetta champion will lead the team, which will feature current KICK Start Energy Ginetta Junior Championship competitors Billy Monger, Cameron Roberts and Kyle Hornby.
Monger currently lies second overall in in the KICK Start Energy Ginetta Junior Championship, having taken a race win and several other podiums already this year, whilst rookies Roberts and Hornby have both enjoyed strong openers to their sports car racing CV’s.
Ginetta Chairman Lawrence Tomlinson said;“I am delighted Ginetta can once again support this fantastic event. It gives Ginetta a great platform to showcase the talent we have racing with us in front of an influential crowd – and it’s even better when they beat some of the UK’s best racers to take the win! Charlie led Team LNT to victory in 2014, so we’re hoping he can do the same this time around!”
Team Manager Charlie Robertson added; "I'm honoured to have been asked to compete as part of Team LNT, and for such a great and important cause. It was a fantastic event last year, full of action all the way through. Team LNT took the win, so I'll be looking to lead my team to victory this year."
Each year the HSF Team Karting Challenge receives tremendous support from a host of star names from the world of motorsport, business and the entertainment industry and 2015 will be no exception. The action-packed day is a ‘must do’ event for all motorsport enthusiasts.
John Surtees OBE said:“Last year the Ginetta team won the karting challenge against fierce competition, beating 34 other teams on the grid. We are delighted that they will be joining us once again to defend their title. There are still a limited number of places available for teams to participate in the HSF Team Karting Challenge. Why not put a team of four together and come and join us at Brooklands - the original home of motorsport, where you will be able to enjoy the superb facilities of Mercedes-Benz World in the company of the Henry Surtees Foundation and our star guests.”
“This year we have organised a ‘special’ vehicle demonstration during the interval. We are delighted to welcome Damon Hill OBE who will take to the circuit in the 1965 Tasman 2.5 litre Climax Lotus type 32B that Jim Clark won the Tasman Series with (Courtesy of Classic Team Lotus). Damon’s parade laps will commemorate 50th anniversary of Jim Clark winning the second Formula One World Championship. Derek Bell MBE will also be reunited with the Surtees TS7 that he successfully raced for the team”.
John Surtees himself will drive the Surtees TS10 Formula 2 car that he won the Japanese Grand Prix and Imola Gold Cup in in 1972. Other formula cars will be driven by drivers to be announced’.
