2018 Return to Ginetta for Scott

Following on from a fantastic start to the 2017 Simpson Products Ginetta Junior Championship for the first two rounds, North Yorkshire racer Scott McKenna continues his racing career after a notable absence for the remainder of last year.

Having captured people’s attention in his standout performances at both Brands Hatch Indy and Donington Park, which included two maiden podiums and a class win at the latter, the young Ice Driver now switches focus towards a promising season in 2018.

As a result of hard work and a ‘never give up attitude’, McKenna will now realign himself with HHC Motorsport taking part in the 2018 Ginetta GT5 Challenge Championship, racing in the very familiar Ginetta G40. Alongside McKenna’s GT5 commitments, he will also be racing in several historic events this year.

“It’s great to be back with all the team at HHC, who made me feel very welcome in my brief spell in Ginetta Juniors this year,” explained the 16-year-old, who is eager to prove his racing credentials once again.

“I’m really thankful for all the support I have received from everyone since I made my racing début at Brands Hatch in April, I have never lost my motivation to race and can’t wait to get back out racing.”

McKenna has also confirmed that he is very excited about the challenges ahead and is looking forward to starting his testing program in the New Year.

“We are delighted to have Scott back in the team, having shown great promise early on in the Ginetta Juniors last year,” stated HHC Motorsport’s Commercial Director, Charlie Kemp, who admitted that it was unfortunate for McKenna to withdraw after just two weekends of the 2017 season.

“It was a shame that he was unable to carry on in 2017, due to circumstances surrounding sponsorship. But it is great to see that he has gone away, worked hard and made sure he was able to join our GT5 Challenge assault for the forthcoming season.

“And if he can show the learning potential and race prowess that he demonstrated last year, I have no doubt that Scott will be able to challenge for podium positions from the moment the season gets underway.”
