Silverstone Preview : Ginetta Racing Drivers Club

Silverstone Preview : Ginetta Racing Drivers Club

Following their competitive motorsport debut at Rockingham Motor Speedway earlier this month, the Ginetta Racing Drivers Club class of 2015 are looking forward to another exciting race weekend, all behind the wheel of their brand new, fully road legal Ginetta G40 Club cars.

The man to beat this weekend is Adrian Campbell-Smith who picked up both wins on offer last time out, but he will undoubtedly come under pressure from Mike Jarvis, who secured a third and second place and has his sights firmly set on a win at the Home Of British Motorsport.

As the only other two drivers to have picked up silverware on their racing debut, Phil McGarty and Richard Smith will be looking for more of the same, whilst Richard Evans – who narrowly missed out on qualifying on pole position for the opener - and Simon Walker will be snapping at their heels, having narrowly missed out on the champagne celebrations in Corby.

Drivers to watch out for include top five finisher Paul Garstang, Mike Newbould, who was particularly racy at the Rock and Roy Perkins, Steve Hughes and Stefan Nadarajan, who enjoyed some great on track battling in their last outing, and will no doubt be picking up where they left off. Others to look forward to include Mark Cundy, Colin Plumb, Dan Collinson and Jim Finneran – with the foursome regularly position swapping during their debut a few weeks ago.

Joining the grid for the first time will be Yorkshiremen Paul Zwicky-Ross and Richard Elliker, CAR Magazine Staff Writer James Taylor. Plus Paul Oliphant - father of Team LNT GT3 driver Tom - and Xtrac boss Peter Digby.

In what will be the last race meeting before the Ginetta Racing Drivers Club head off on the road trip of a lifetime to the Le Mans 24 Hours as guests of Ginetta boss Lawrence Tomlinson, the grid will undoubtedly be racing hard for bragging rights around the pool of their French chateau.
