Grahame Tilley will return to the Michelin Ginetta GT4 SuperCup in 2017, as he makes his debut with his own team, Tecserv UK.
The 65 year old business owner enjoyed a successful career in single-seater’s during the 1970’s and was straight back to his winning ways when he joined the Ginetta family. Picking up 11 podiums, including a class win at Donington Park, he went on to finish third the AM class.
For 2017, Grahame is aiming to go two better and has his sights firmly set on the overall AM class honours. Having established his own team, Tecserv UK, Grahame will run the car himself during the British Touring Car Championship weekends.
Grahame Tilley, driver;“The Michelin Ginetta GT4 SuperCup is an excellent championship to be a part of and I’m really looking forward to getting back on circuit and mounting my campaign to take the AM class title. I’m going to prepare the car myself this year, with a little help from Alan Mugglestone during the week, so hopefully between us we can be on the pace from the get-go.”
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.
