Reigning Ginetta GT Academy champions SVG Motorsport will be back to defend their title this season with a three car entry.
The Surrey based team stormed to the GTA class title last year with Toby Trice, courtesy of a great record of 10 podium finishes in 12 races. Their entry this season features Ginetta returnees Lee Frost and Alistair Barclay, plus debutant Lilly Brame.
Frost has a wealth of experience in GT racing, including two years in the Ginetta GT4 SuperCup and spells in Britcar and the Porsche Carrera Cup GB. The Worcestershire based racer made two outings in the GT Academy last year, including a brilliant double podium in the season opener.
For Barclay, a GT Academy debut marks a welcome return to Ginetta racing. He last appeared in 2019, when he scored multiple race wins in the G40 Cup to record a second consecutive top four points finish in the championship.
Whilst she may be making her car-racing debut this season, Brame is no stranger to the paddocks having spent two years working for teams alongside her studies in Motorsport Engineering. She has worked with W Series as part of their ‘Technician Training Programme’.
Andy Johnson, SVG Motorsport Team Principal: “We’re delighted to be back in the Ginetta GT Academy this season. In Lee and Alistair, we have two experienced racers that can work together and really push each other towards the front of the field.
“I’m confident that both have good potential for regular podium finishes and potentially title challenges. Lilly became involved with the team last season and we’re thrilled to be able to help her go racing this year. It’s going to be exciting to see her progress through her debut season.”
The Ginetta GT Academy gives drivers of all experience levels the opportunity to enjoy entry level GT racing. The series offers an uncompromising package of high performance racing at an affordable cost, with the exposure of competing at British GT and BTCC events.
