Weston racing driver Will Burns is looking to improve on last year's performances with a move to a rival team.
WESTON racing driver Will Burns is targeting consistent podium finishes and race wins in this season’s Ginetta GT4 Supercup.
Burns has moved to HHC Motorsport after finishing seventh in the standings last year with Academy Motorsport.
The 24-year-old said: “HHC had such a good year last year in their first season in the championship and their set-up was spot on. Hats off to Academy though, it was my rookie season and they helped me out lots.
The four podium finishes Burns achieved last year came during a spell of 11 consecutive top five finishes across the middle of the season, a run unmatched by any of his rivals on the grid.
After proving he had the pace to consistently battle at the front, Burns now feels the other ingredients are in place to aid a championship push this season as he joins 2012 champion Carl Breeze and race-winner Jamie Orton in the HHC camp.
He continued: “There’s some good drivers coming into the championship that will want to beat those of us established in the series, so I want to get on the podium more regularly and get some more wins.”
The 2015 Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup season kicks off with the opening three rounds at Brands Hatch this weekend.
