Team HARD confirm Ginetta line up

Team HARD, having previously announced that it will enter two Ginetta G55 GT4s in the 2018 British GT Championship with a Silver and a Pro/Am pairing, have revealed its driver line-ups for the forthcoming season.

In the #88 Ginetta G55 GT4, established Team HARD driver Ben Wallace will be joined by Nick Worm in a Silver pairing.

Ben Wallace begins his first full season in the Ginetta G55 GT4 after a busy 2017 where he finished third in the VAG Trophy and competed in three rounds of the British GT Championship.

Young German driver Nick Worm joins Team HARD following his debut season in 2017, competing in the BRDC British Formula 3 Championship.

In the #34 Pro/Am entry Anna Walewska joins the team to be partnered with Callum Hawkins- Row.

2018 will be Anna Walewska’s third season in the British GT Championship and her first with Team HARD. In 2016 Anna finished third in the GT4 Pro Am category. Callum Hawkins-Row joined Team HARD in 2015 as part of its highly successful driver development programme.

Alongside Angus Dudley, Callum drove the team’s Ginetta G55 GT4 to third place in the 2017 Britcar Endurance Championship in the GT4 category and fifth place overall, beating some GT3 entries in doing so.

Team Principal Tony Gilham said: “We’re very excited about this season. We had a great debut in 2016 culminating in the team championship. 2017 wasn’t the best year for us so we’re looking to come back this year with a very strong line-up. We’ve got what we consider to be both strong Silver and Pro-Am pairings so we’re going to go for both titles.”

“We’ve decided to continue with Ginetta as we have a good relationship with them running several cars in Britcar and we’ve got a strong Ginetta GT4 Supercup entry this year but in British GT we’re geared up for, hopefully, a very strong showing.”

#88, Ginetta G55 GT4 (Silver) Ben Wallace said: “I’m really excited and looking forward to the new season. I’m going to learn as much as possible, keep my nose clean and hopefully get some good results out of it. I haven’t had too much experience working with Nick (Worm) but I have high hopes that we’ll have some good races together and get some good results. I’m also looking forward to working with Anna (Walewska) and Callum (Hawkins-Row) as they have some good experience in the Ginetta and we can help each other out.”
