Former Title Contender Will Burns Returns To Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 SuperCup

11th March 2019 • Simon Paice

2016 Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 SuperCup vice-champion Will Burns will make an exciting return to the championship this season with Rob Boston Racing.

The Weston-Super-Mare based driver brings a wealth of experience to the 2019 grid, having previously completed six seasons in one-make Ginetta competition alongside spells in the UK’s two highest profile series, the British Touring Car Championship and the British GT Championship.

Starting his Ginetta journey back in 2011 in the GT5 Challenge, a three year run in that series culminated in him ending as the 2013 vice-champion, before he graduated to the BTCC-supporting GT4 SuperCup the following season.

The 28 year old picked up no less than 32 podium finishes during three seasons in the SuperCup and narrowly missed out on the 2016 championship, coming back from a deficit of over 90 points to finish just three points shy of glory following a thrilling season finale.

Will Burns:“I’m delighted to be returning to the Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 SuperCup in 2019. I’ve loved my time in the championship previously and I’m excited to see what success I can achieve this year with Rob Boston Racing.

 “The team’s recent success in the Supercup speaks for itself and when I started looking at the Supercup for 2019, I knew they were the team for me. I feel right at home behind the wheel of a Ginetta G55 GT4, so I’m confident we can hit the ground running together.”

Rob Boston Racing head into the new season as the defending champions after winning their second drivers' title in three seasons last year with Charlie Ladell. Burns joins the team’s 2019 entry alongside championship debutant James Kell.

The Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 SuperCup is Ginetta’s flagship championship, with a two-class structure for Professional and Amateur drivers. In 2019, the series will be contested over eight race weekends in support of the British Touring Car Championship.
