Ginetta Racing Drivers Club graduate Phil McGarty has joined forces with SVG Motor Sport for his 2016 GRDC+ title bid.
In what will be his second year as part of the British GT support race package, Phil – who only obtained his racing licence in 2015 - will make the step up from the entry-level racing driver series, into the next level of competition. Having taken a podium result during his maiden campaign in 2016, there’s no doubt Phil has his eyes on more silverware.
Phil McGarty, Driver: “I had a fantastic time with the GRDC in 2015, so moving up to the GRDC+ class was an easy decision. I want to have even more success out on track this year, and to that end, I can’t wait to tap into the experience of Andy and the team at SVG Motor Sport.”
Andy Johnson, SVG Motor Sport owner:“We are delighted to have Phil join our team this year. We learnt a lot in our first year with Ginetta last season and achieved some excellent results, including several podium finishes. We will build on what we learnt and plan to get Phil back on the podium too.”
The GRDC+ provides Ginetta Racing Drivers Club graduates with an arena in which to race their road-legal Ginetta G40 Club Cars. It is also the ideal starting platform for drivers who have too much circuit racing experience for the pure entry-level Ginetta Racing Drivers Club.
In support of the British GT, the 2016 GRDC+ calendar will feature standalone races, plus outings as part of the Ginetta GT5 Challenge grid. Drivers can take in Brands Hatch, Rockingham, Silverstone, Spa Francorchamps, Snetterton and Donington Park.
SVG Motor Sport intend to enter three Ginetta G40’s on the British GT support series for 2016. To find out how you can join their team, visit www.svgmotorsport.com.
