Ginetta star Michael Crees will graduate into the GT4 Supercup championship next year for just his second season of racing.
The 34-year-old from Broadstairs will run with the Century Motorsport team in the car previously campaigned by Ben Green.
Crees won the Leeds firm’s GRDC+ title in his maiden season of racing this term, having only done arrive and drive karting beforehand. He took seven wins from the 18 races and never finished lower than fifth.
“The Supercup is going to be a massive step up, but I’m over the moon to even be thinking about it,” he said. “This time last year I was just karting at Buckmore Park, and somehow managed to finish second in last year’s Henry Surtees Trophy event. Things just snowballed from there to get me racing this year and now it’s gone nuts!
“I’ve had a few laps around Blyton Park in the G55, and it’s very different. I have to get my head around racing with aero and having no traction control or ABS. But Century seem like a great team and I’m a fast learner so I’m going in wanting to win the Am Class title and mix it with the Pros as an where I can.”
