Both drivers will continue their Ginetta journeys in the new-for-2021 championship and join the previously announced Robin Grimwood, Martin Wills and Julian Wantling in an impressive five car line-up for the two-time Ginetta G40 Cup title winning team.

Alderslade started his career in the 2018 Ginetta Racing Drivers Club and went on to impressively win the G40 Cup ‘Chairmans Cup’ title the following year. He returned to the grid for two outings last year and shone again with three class wins.

Goldsmith meanwhile is another driver to have started his career by following the GRDC and G40 Cup route. The Monaco based racer then contested a partial campaign in the GT4 SuperCup last year with Assetto, securing four Am class podium finishes.

Jim Edwards, team manager: “Simon Traves and I are delighted that our drivers have chosen to continue with us this season as they move into the Ginetta GT Academy. This is a significant step for the guys and we are confident that they all have the speed and experience to be successful this season.

“I am personally excited that Roy has committed to joining us for the first time, as he’s a friend of the team, whilst at the same time, he’s been an extremely tough competitor of ours in the G40 Cup. He will certainly be a formidable championship contender this year.

“Lee will be looking for some strong results having enjoyed some podiums in the GT4 SuperCup, while Robin achieved his best ever results towards the end of last season. He showed just how fast he can be, which we expect to continue in 2021.

“We’re delighted to welcome Julian and Martin back to the team as well and both have huge potential in this new car. All in all, we are expecting a hugely competitive and enjoyable season of Ginetta GT Academy racing.”

The GT Academy is a new addition to Ginetta’s stable of one-make domestic championships for 2021. Giving drivers of all experience levels the opportunity to enjoy entry level GT racing, the series offers an uncompromising package of high performance racing at an affordable cost.
