Tom Canning has joined the new Mercedes British GT4 team ProTechnika. The
team was launched at Spa Francorchamps in July 2018.
Tom races with the team owner and co-driver Anna Walewska.
Tom Canning is the youngest ever driver in the British GT Championship. At just 16 years and 35 days old when he made his debut on Easter Monday in 2018 this made him six days younger than the current record holder.
Tom had his first experience of driving a kart aged 6 and raced competitively from the age of 8. After winning the Clay Pigeon and South West Championships, he then raced in Europe and in the British Super One National Championship, becoming the British Honda Cadet Champion in 2014.
Last year saw Tom race in sports cars for the first time in his rookie Junior Ginetta year and is now excited to make the jump to GT racing as an FIA Silver Standard driver.
‘I am excited to join ProTechnika, alongside Anna Walewska, in the Mercedes GT4. I will be joining the team for their first British GT event, which will be at Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps. It will also be my first time racing at this track as it is still my first season racing in the British GT Championship. Looking forward to getting back on track.'
