Adam Higgins is the latest new face to join the Michelin Ginetta GT4 SuperCup Class of 2017 after confirming his entry with the Hurricane Motorsport team.
The 30 year old HGV driver from Chippenham joins the British Touring Car Championship support series following a one-off in a Ginetta G50 during the Welsh Sports and Saloon Championship, which saw him pick up a pair of podium results as well as the Ginetta GT4 bug.
Adam Higgins, driver;“I’m incredibly excited to be a part of the Ginetta family. I’ve wanted to join the series for a number of years now, so to finally be ‘doing it’ is fantastic. The G55 GT4’s results in Endurance and GT racing speak for themselves and I hope to progress my career with Ginetta for years to come.”
The Michelin Ginetta GT4 SuperCup is Ginetta's flagship championship. Seen as a stepping stone into global GT and prototype racing, it caters for career drivers and gentleman racers alike. Featuring both Professional and Amateur classes, both of which enjoy their own points structure and prize giving, the format ensures competitors with time-consuming workloads are not at a disadvantage to those career racers who can test and train throughout the week.
The championship provides the ideal next step from competition in the Ginetta G40 and the Ginetta G55 GT4 car itself is eligible for a number of international GT races, making it the perfect training ground for graduation into the Ginetta G55 GT3 and Ginetta G57-P2.
The opening rounds of the 2017 Michelin Ginetta GT4 SuperCup will take place at Brands Hatch in Kent on 1 and 2 April 2017.
