Ginetta Racing Drivers Club graduate Richard Tetlow is set to join the GRDC+ series in 2017 as he joins new outfit, Team County End.
The 42 year old from Oldham has nothing less than the championship honours in his sights as he makes the step up to the GRDC+ field. He hopes to continue picking up champagne and silverware whilst helping Team County End establish themselves as a championship-winning team.
Richard Tetlow, Driver: “I’m really looking forward to returning to the grid with team County End. I picked up plenty of podiums last season and I want to win the championship in 2017. I’ve already proven myself as a driver after coming from 19th [following a spin] to second in class and I hope to show off more of my driving skill in 2017.”
The Ginetta Racing Drivers Club Plus (GRDC+) is a natural progression for those drivers who have recently discarded their 'novice' plates and are often graduates from our GRDC series, though not exclusively.
This second year series gradually ups the circuit time for racing drivers. It continues to be a support series to the British GT, taking in six circuits - including an overseas round at Spa Francorchamps - with a trio of races at each venue.
GRDC+ is also the ideal starting platform for drivers who have too much circuit racing experience for the purely entry-level Ginetta Racing Drivers Club, enabling them to retain all the member benefits, whilst racing amongst drivers of similar ability and experience.
Drivers can continue to compete in their road legal G40 Club Car, with a few minor changes. The uprated suspension and semi-slick tyres unleash the next level in performance, making the Ginetta Racing Drivers Club Plus a perfect fit for those wanting to push themselves on track whilst still seeking a collegiate feel.
