Ethan Hawkey will switch to Richardson Racing for the remainder of the 2019 Ginetta Junior championship.
Hawkey spent the first half of the season competing with Total Control Racing, continuing with the team he made his championship debut with in the second half of 2018.
After a difficult start to the year, the 16-year-old took his first podium finish at Thruxton, and currently lies eighth in the championship standings.
He now joins Corby-based Richardson Racing for the second half of the year.
“I’ve had a solid season so far, but during the summer break we’ve been looking at the options available to give me the best chance of success in the remaining rounds,” he said.
“You only have to look at the results that Richardson Racing has had this season to see that they are one of the teams to beat in the series, and I’m delighted that we’ve been able to agree a deal.
“I’m confident that I can challenge for some more silverware during the remaining five rounds and I can’t wait to get to Snetterton to start working with the team.
“Hopefully I can hit the ground running and start my time with the team on a high this weekend.”
The new recruit takes Richardson Racing’s Ginetta Junior line-up to four cars as Hawkey joins Will Martin, Casper Stevenson, and James Taylor at the squad.
