Hampshire driver Charlie Digby will continue with HHC Motorsport for his first full season in the Ginetta Junior championship.
Digby joined the championship for three rounds of the season last year, taking eight points finishes in the nine races he competed in.
This year, the teenager is aiming for consistent top ten finishes.
“I feel confident the 2017 Ginetta Junior season will be the competitive test-bed I need to further hone my skills as I look to take on more experienced racers at the front half of the grid,” Digby said. “I am focused on finishing well, bringing the car home clean and who knows, if I can work hard enough possibly even win some silverware by the end of the season.”
HHC saw plenty of silverware last season. The team took Will Tregurtha to the title in 2016, and helped his teammate Lewis Brown to third, with only Stuart Middleton between the two of them.
Team owner Charlie Kemp is confident Digby can continue the team’s success.
“Charlie has worked hard to make his limited track time last season really count,” he said. “His development has been pleasing with a good run in the 2016 Winter Series testament to that. He is a dedicated young racer and we’re looking forward to continuing this focused work in 2017. I have no doubt that we will see him climbing up the grid in 2017, achieving his goal to be a consistent top-10 finisher.”
Digby joins already confirmed Scott McKenna and Ruben Del Sarte at HHC Motorsport.
