HHC Motorsport will expand to field two cars in next year’s British GT Championship, and has signed new Ginetta GT4 Supercup champion Callum Pointon to the programme.
HHC will run two Ginetta G55 GT4s in the full British championship next year, with Pointon sharing his all-Silver-graded car with European GT racer Patrik Matthiesen.
The team’s second car will be the Pro-Am pairing of British Touring Car Championship racer Will Burns and Mike Newbould.
HHC won this year’s GT4 drivers’ and Silver Cup titles with Will Tregurtha and Stuart Middleton, but that pairing is now expected to move on. HHC also won the GT4 teams’ crown, and will now push for a clean sweep of category titles with its added Pro-Am entry.
Team boss Charlie Kemp told Motorsport News: “We’re really excited about British GT for next season and we’ve definitely got two driver line-ups that can impress.
“In Callum we have a very proven young driver, who’s coming into British GT knowing the G55 inside-out, but from a sprint race format. Patrik we ran to the Ginetta Jr Rookie title in 2015 and we know his pace. He’s bringing endurance racing experience, so together they should be right at the front.
“In Will and Mike we have a developing Pro-Am partnership with good experience. They won on their debut in the GT Cup [at Snetterton in October] and will be out for the Pro-Am title.
Pointon, who scored two wins on his way to the GT4 Supercup crown this year, added: “I felt I proved something with the GT4 Supercup title this year and I’ve improved as a driver again.
“I’ve still got things to learn, and the full GT4 cars have a bit more torque but less overall aero and grip, so there will be an adaption. But I’m confident Patrik and I can be a great partnership.”
