Smalley And Emson Line Up For Elite Motorsport In Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 SuperCup

17th March 2020 • Simon Paice

Ginetta front-runners Adam Smalley and Tom Emson will contest the Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 SuperCup this year with reigning drivers’ champions Elite Motorsport.

Smalley will aim to continue a successful run in one-make Ginetta competition this year, having started his career as the Junior Scholarship winner in 2017. After securing the Winter Series title that year, he went on to taste overall championship glory the following campaign.

The 19 year old stepped up to the GT5 Challenge last year and was fighting at the front of the field throughout, with four race victories and six further podium results. He now makes his GT4 SuperCup debut as he enters his fourth season of racing with Elite.

Emson meanwhile made the move to the GT4 SuperCup for the final two rounds of 2019, following a two year spell in the Juniors. A regular top six contender throughout his time in the series, he scored a stunning maiden win last year at Brands Hatch.

The 17 year old from Kent curtailed his Junior campaign to enter the GT4 SuperCup for the Silverstone and Brands Hatch GP meetings. A strong start saw him finish in the top ten in three of the six races he contested, with a best result of seventh in the season finale.

Eddie Ives, team principal: “After a busy winter with a few changes to our driver line-up, we’re delighted to confirm we will be back to defend our Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 SuperCup title with two very quick Pro class contenders in Adam and Tom.

“Both drivers have been part of the team for a few years now and we’re pleased that they’re sticking with us for 2020. Having worked with them, we already know the talent they possess and they’ve shown in our pre-season testing that they have the pace to be at the front of the grid.”

The Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 SuperCup is Ginetta’s flagship championship, with a three-class structure incorporating Pro, Pro Am and Am categories. In 2020, the series will be contested in support of the British Touring Car Championship.
