Year 2012 will definitely be one of the most exciting in the whole VCARS.co.uk history. We’ve decided to sponsor one of the UK’s top Ginetta GT G55 racing drivers, Tom Sharp, for the second time (first time in 2011)!
Tom started his career aged 14 when he joined the Ginetta Juinors. He then progressed to the Ginetta G50’s as part of the BTCC support package and won the 2008 Winter Championship. Last year he managed to win more races than anyone and was consistently a front runner in the series. He finished the season on the 3rd position in the whole classification of Ginetta GT SuperCup. We strongly believe he would have been the first if not his unfortunate accident (click here to check our article about the accident) during one of the last races. In fact, he was named by Autosport magazine as the best driver in the SuperCup and the 8th best national driver of 2011.
Tom’s career to date is:
2011 Ginetta GT SuperCup G55 Class;
2010 Ginetta G50 Cup
2009 Ginetta G50 Cup
2009 PorscheCarrera Cup GB Scholarship Finalist
2008 Ginetta G50 Cup
2008 PorscheCarrera Cup GB Scholarship Finalist
2008 GinettaG50 Winter Series Champion
2007 Ginetta Junior Championship
2006 Ginetta Junior Championship
2005 Ginetta Junior Championship
Next season he will continue racing in Ginetta G55, which was launched in February 2011, evolving from its predecessor the highly successful G50. It signifies the next step in competitive racing for Ginetta. The most powerful Ginetta race car produced to date, the G55 will become a regular on the BTCC support package and a serious contender for GT3 racing.
