Will Phillips swaps from Ginetta to the MacMillan AMR for 2017

Tuesday, December 06, 2016

Today saw the announcement that Will Phillips will be joining the MacMillan Racing squad in its Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage GT4 for next seasons British GT Championship.

Having competed in the series last year in the Team Hard Ginetta GT4 alongside Jordan Stilp, the duo went on to claim third in the GT4 Silver Driver Championship just ahead of last years MacMillan GT4 driver line up of Jack Mitchell and Matty Graham. With Jack Mitchell already confirmed in the team's new Aston Martin V12 Vantage GT3 for 2017,  after having tested it at Donington last month Phillips is the first to claim a seat in the teams GT4.

“I’m really excited to be joining Macmillan Racing,” said Will. “I’ve enjoyed testing the Aston Martin and I immediately felt at home with the team. I’m convinced that we’re going to be a very good fit.”

“With GT4 grids at near-capacity,” he reckons, “the 2017 British GT Championship is going to be mega! It’s guaranteed to be really competitive and with new names and faces arriving, it’s sure to be an interesting year".

We continue to wait for confirmation of drivers for the remaining two seats as the team are due to commence their pre season testing programme early in the new year.
