Luca Hirst Set For Racing Return In Ginetta GT4 SuperCup

Luca Hirst will tackle his first season of racing since 2015 this year as he enters the Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 SuperCup with his own Raceway Motorsport team.

Luca Hirst Set For Racing Return In Ginetta GT4 SuperCup

A former UK and world champion in karting, Hirst made his car-racing debut in the Ginetta GT5 Challenge back in 2014 and impressed with a top ten points finish in his maiden campaign. He went on to score a breakthrough podium finish en-route to fourth overall the following year.

At the same time as racing, Hirst was working for Ginetta as an engineer and race mechanic. Since leaving that role, he has continued to work in Ginetta race paddocks and went on to set up his own team Raceway Motorsport last year alongside wife Nicole and business partner Russ Meakin.

As well as being team principal as the Yorkshire squad competes in the Ginetta GT5 Challenge and Juniors this year, the 26 year old will now also make a long-awaited return to the track himself in the BTCC support series.

Luca Hirst: “I’m delighted to finally get myself out racing again. I have always wanted to race the Ginetta G55 SuperCup car and what better way than to race with Raceway Motorsport. Our aim for the year is to become competitive within the class and collect valuable data moving forward for the team.”

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