Richardson Racing has confirmed it will take part in the 2020 Ginetta Junior championship, as it announces an expansion into the Porsche Carrera Cup.
Will Martin will spearhead the squad’s Porsche campaign after finishing third with the team in the 2019 Ginetta Junior championship.
2020 will be Richardson’s fourth season in the Ginetta Junior championship, having entered the series in 2017 with Luke Browning. In three years, the team has picked up 19 victories and challenged for the title in 2018 and ’19.
The move to join the Porsche Carrera Cup follows an expansion in the British Formula 4 championship in 2019, where Browning regularly fought for race wins and finished sixth in the overall standings.
The Corby based team also competes in the GT5 Challenge.
“We’re absolutely delighted to confirm that we will be moving into the Porsche Carrera Cup GB for 2020, and particularly that we are doing so with Will as part of the driver line-up,” said team principal Gwyn Richardson.
“Since joining us for the final few rounds of the 2018 season, he has improved a huge amount and over the course of 2019 really established himself as one of the young drivers to watch in British motorsport.
“To keep him onboard for the next stage of our continued growth is fantastic, and I have no doubt that as the 2020 season goes on, he can make an impression on the Carrera Cup.
“We know that the Porsche programme is going to provide us with a new challenge, but it is one that we are ready to embrace during the year ahead. We have worked hard in recent years to put together a team that has the skills and expertise to fight at the front of the grid, and are confident that we will be able to build on the success we have enjoyed so far in this new venture.”
