Woodard Racing Organisation recently announced the signing of LGBT racing ace Freddy Niblack and the company’s return to the highly competitive Britcar Endurance Championship for 2018. With a Ginetta G55 GT4, the team are eager to rejoin the grid, and form part of this spirited championship.
Woodard Racing Organisation announced that they have signed Niblack to a two year deal. Niblack is one of the only out race car drivers in the United States.
With a background that embraces the American motor racing scene, Freddy is certainly equipped with skill, and he is very much looking forward to his new venture.
“I think some of the best drivers in the world come from the U.K.,” states Niblack. “I’m excited to learn the many new circuits and to learn from the team. It’s definitely going to be a challenge with my open wheel background, but I’m confident in the team and myself.”
Team Principle, Peter Woodard, commented: “Britcar is a very competitive championship. After running the Mini for the last two years, we have learnt that it is not necessarily the right car for the job. There are a number of Ginetta’s in the championship, all of whom are competitive. We don’t expect to be hassling the front runners right away, but our goal is to be competitive, and to be able to race amongst the top half of the grid. We fully expect 2018 to be a learning year, as we navigate our way with the Ginetta.”
Although the main focus is the Britcar Championship, Woodard Racing plan to team their efforts with a number of appearances in other endurance series, which are due to be announced shortly. The team will also continue to race their Mini R56, as part of the 750 Motor Club Club Enduro Championship.
The Britcar Endurance Championship comprises seven rounds, including many of the major circuits within the UK. The team are due to release their testing schedule soon, in preparation for the first round at the Rockingham Motor Speedway on April 14.
