Broadstairs racing driver Michael Crees is back on track after being announced as part of the line up for Raceway Motorsport’s Ginetta G56 GT4 entries in this year’s Intelligent Money British GT Championship.
“I’ve been part of Raceway for the last two years and the whole team now feels like an extension of my family, so I’m ecstatic to be continuing my adventure with them and Ginetta in British GT,” said the 20-year-old.
Crees won the GT4 Supercup Am class title with another British GT outfit, Century, in 2018 before turning his attention to the British Touring Car Championship in 2019-20 and last season. He has also made Porsche Supercup appearances with Team Parker Racing.
He said: “I’m absolutely buzzing to get a deal done with Raceway Motorsport so late in the day as I honestly thought I would be sitting out this year due to some bad luck with sponsors.
“But I have to thank Luca [Hirst, team principal], Nigel [Holland] and Tom Holland for pulling this all together at such late notice!
“It will be a massive challenge but one I’m looking forward to as GT racing has always been on my radar and Le Mans has always been my end goal. I’m really looking forward to working with Ginetta again where I had so much success when starting out. “Massive thanks to Vince [Caldicott] who has been by my side and my family for all their support. Roll on Oulton!”
The Cheshire circuit hosts British GT’s season opener on April 8 & 10. But before that, both there will be a public appearances at the championship’s Donington Park media day on Tuesday.
