Ginetta Juniors champion Will Tregurtha will join forces with title rival Stuart Middleton next season as they take on the British GT championship.
The duo went toe-to-toe for the 2016 crown, with MK race ace Tregurtha coming out on top with a round to spare.
But graduating from the junior series, the pair will combine their talents to compete in the British GT series in a Ginetta GT55 GT4 with HHC Motorsport.
Charlie Kemp, HHC boss said: “With Will and Stuart, we have two very promising young drivers who have bright futures ahead of them.
“We’re delighted they have teamed up together to advance us into British GT.”
