AK Motorsport Expand Line-Up For 2021 Ginetta GT4 SuperCup

7th April 2021 • Simon Paice

AK Motorsport have confirmed Carl Garnett, James Blake-Baldwin, Garry Townsend and Jack Sycamore for the 2021 Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 SuperCup.

Since making their GT4 SuperCup debut in 2018, AK Motorsport has established themselves as a competitive force in the BTCC support series. They enjoyed their strongest season to date last year as Garnett challenged at the front of the Am class.

Building on a good debut campaign in 2019, the Yorkshireman overcame a tough start to the season to fight for the class title. An incredible run of eight consecutive wins helped him finish as vice-champion, missing out on glory by two points having previously been 117 adrift.

Blake-Baldwin is ready to tackle his first full season in the GT4 SuperCup this year after enjoying an outing in each of the last two seasons. On both occasions the former Mazda MX-5 Supercup champion has shown his potential with overall top six finishes.

Townsend and Sycamore both join their team-mates in making the transition from Mazda MX-5 racing as they embark on their Ginetta debuts. Townsend has won multiple Masters class titles in the series with AK Motorsport, while Sycamore finished third overall last season in his best ever campaign.

Anthony Kane, team manager: “We’re delighted to be back in the Ginetta GT4 SuperCup this season and to be expanding the team’s presence on the grid. We’ve made good progress in the championship over the last three years, and we want to push on in 2021.

“Moving up to a four car line-up is great for us, and we’ve got a brilliant group of talented, successful racers who will all benefit from having team-mates to work alongside. We’re determined to be challenging as front-runners in each of the classes we’re contesting this year.

The Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 SuperCup is Ginetta’s flagship championship. In 2021, the series will be contested over eight race weekends in support of the British Touring Car Championship.
