After a short break, Mohamed Elshimy will return to Ginetta Racing with SVG Motor Sport at Spa-Francorchamps in July. Mohamed had a successful inaugural season in the Ginetta last year with a particularly impressive outing at Spa.
After racing for eight years in Dubai, Mohamed was a regular driver with SVG having joined the team in 2013. Looking to start his racing career in the UK he initially competed in classic touring car racing. He switched to the SVG Ginetta G40 last year to compete in the GT5 Challenge, finishing the season just outside the top ten. The highlight of the season was the trip to Spa with 4th and 5th placed finishes.
Delighted to be back with SVG for the trip to Spa, the aim for Mohamed is to go one better than last year and achieve a podium finish. First, he must not only reacclimatise himself with the car after several months out but also learn how the car handles on different tyres from last season.
The Spa event is on 8th – 9th July, updates from the weekend will be posted on this site and on Facebook.
