Trice, who teams up once again with the front running SVG Motorsport outfit, graduates from the British marque’s entry-level GRDC category.
The 30-year-old from Deal, Kent, also uses his racing activities as an opportunity to raise awareness for Fertility Network UK. Working with the expert in-house team at Momentum to document his rise through the racing ranks.
Confirming his spot on the GT Academy grid means Trice can now look ahead to an action-packed, 15-race season across the UK’s two highest-profile packages; the British GT and British Touring Car Championships.
That includes fixtures at some of the country’s most challenging and iconic venues, including Silverstone, Donington Park and Trice’s local favourite, Brands Hatch.
A new challenge
Following a successful start to life in GT racing, including three podium finishes, a pole position and a ‘Driver of the Weekend’ accolade… The GT Academy marks an important next step in Trice’s career.
Derived from the most successful GT4 chassis in history, the series revolves around the Ginetta G55 GTA. A cost-effective and competitive option for those looking to climb the GT racing ladder.
All cars are identical, putting driver ability front and centre on the road to success.
“I am hugely excited and extremely grateful to be back racing in 2021 after a strange and challenging 12 months for us all,” said Trice.
“I spent 2020 focusing on developing my brand and what we offer to our partners for the future; it put me in a strong position to compete again this year.
“Entering the Ginetta GT Academy is by no means an easy task, but one I am going to grasp with both hands!
“I plan on working incredibly hard to develop and craft my race skills this year, which should set me up with a solid foundation for the rest of my racing career.”
“It’s fantastic to see Toby back on track this season, and in what promises to be such a great addition to the GT racing ladder.” added Momentum Social Co-Founder and Director, Alex Wood.
“We’ve really enjoyed playing a part in putting Toby’s brand together over the past year. Boosting his profile, which ultimately gets handed back to his partners and sponsors as a return on their investment.
“The Ginetta GT Academy is going to be highly competitive. But Toby has all the raw ingredients needed to make his first season in the series a successful one; we’ll be watching on with enthusiasm when the season finally gets underway!”
