Douglas Motorsport are please to welcome Gus Burton for the 2019 Ginetta Junior Champsionship. Gus competed in five meetings across the 2018 championship with a number of top ten finishes, including a 6th place in the final round at Brands Hatch
Gus returned for the Winter Series and produced a superb display, picking up a pair of pole positions, leading all four races at one stage and coming away with a maiden podium finish in the series.
Through his racing Burton supports The Sparkle Foundation, whereby every penny of corporate sponsorship he raises is being used to improve the life chances of vulnerable children in Malawi. As well as raising money for the charity this way, Burton also promotes awareness by running a dedicated charity livery on his Ginetta G40.
Gus Burton: “After spending my races last season adapting to the rear wheel drive Ginetta G40, building on my racecraft and overall pace, I’m confident that this season I’m capable of achieving some great results in the Michelin Ginetta Junior Championship.”
Wayne Douglas, team principal: ““We are really happy to have Gus with us for his first full season in the Michelin Ginetta Junior Championship. After getting his first pole positions and leading all four races in the Winter Series, we’re confident he can be running at the front from round one.”
The Ginetta Junior Championship returns on April 6th at the Brands Hatch Indy circuit.
