We are extremely proud to be the primary sponsor of Callum Davies, a very talented 16-year-old racing driver. His route to GT racing, and ultimately the podium has been via karting where he competed in the Junior and Senior Rotax classes along with driving in the British Championships. In July 2022, he was running second in the illustrious national car championships when a test day in a Ginetta GT Academy car was organised to test his skills. It was at this point that Callum took the exciting decision to move from karting to racing cars.
Under the guidance of his driver-coach, Callum set out homing his skills behind the wheel in preparation for the 2023 race season in the recently launched Ginetta GT Pro where he was confirmed as the youngest driver in a grid of experienced racers.
Balancing his studies, and with his GCSEs, Callum continues to learn his new trade behind the wheel, achieving podium positions during his first race as well as fastest laps.
It is undoubtedly going to be an exciting season of racing ahead for Callum and we are delighted to be supporting him on his journey.
Ginetta are renowned for their racing series with many successful racing drivers, such as Lando Norris, Jamie Chadwick and Tom Ingram. Their heritage is well founded with a significant following throughout the world.
With the racing series streamed live, all of Callum’s races can also be viewed again via the Ginetta TV YouTube Channel.
Callum is extremely fortunate to be under the guidance and management of Jon Lancaster, who brings significant experience and world-class results from his own racing career. Still actively racing in multiple series, Jon is an ex-European Le Mans champion as well as veteran of multiple racing series such as F3, F2 and GP2.
During 2023, Callum will be racing with SVG motorsport which is under the guidance of team owner, Andy Johnson. His expert approach to race running is unsurpassed and SVG have a winning pedigree including being the Ginetta GT Academy champions in 2021.
