In an exciting development for the upcoming British GT Championship season, RAM Racing has announced the addition of a second car to its lineup. The Silverstone-based team is set to make its maiden entry into the GT4 class with the formidable pairing of Harry George and Luca Hopkinson, marking a significant expansion of their motorsport endeavors.
This venture will see RAM Racing continuing its enduring partnership with Mercedes-AMG, a collaboration that traces back to the team’s debut in the British GT series in 2015. While the team has previously employed AMG GT4 machinery in other competitions like GT Cup and Creventic, this marks their first foray into the British GT arena with the high-performance brand.
Harry George, set for his second season in the series, brings valuable experience after a successful 2023 campaign with Enduro Motorsport. The 17-year-old driver, who started the season with a McLaren Artura before switching to the Mercedes-AMG at Portimão, is optimistic about the upcoming season alongside RAM Racing.
“The guys at RAM are next level,” said George. “The attention to detail and preparation are second to none, so we know we’re going to have the car to get results right from the start. Working with Luca so far has been great. We’ve gelled quickly, and he’s already showing strong pace, so I think we can aim high this season.”
Luca Hopkinson, at 17, stands among the youngest drivers on the British GT grid, making a bold step up from competing in Ginetta Juniors. Despite the challenge, Hopkinson is confident in his abilities to compete at this level and is eager to learn and succeed in the highly competitive championship.
“This is a big step up, but I’ve seen what other drivers in the same position have achieved since going into GT4, and I have no doubt I can go on to be just as successful,” expressed Hopkinson. “I get on really well with Harry, and I think we’ll be a great pairing. I’m looking to learn as much as I can from him, but we’re going into the season with eyes on wins and the championship.”
RAM Racing’s GT4 effort will run parallel to their BMW M4 GT3 program, where John Ferguson and Raffaele Marciello continue their partnership. The team’s dual participation in both categories adds an extra layer of excitement to the upcoming British GT Championship season.
