JAMES LITTLEJOHN (GBR)

29-year-old James started his climb of the single-seater ladder in British Formula Ford, finishing as runner-up in the championship in 2004, then taking third spot in the 2006 BARC Formula Renault series. His first venture abroad took him to the Asian Formula 3 Championship in 2007, the year in which he made his British GT debut and began his Historic racing career. Moving to Radical sportscars in 2011, he began mopping up wins and titles, claiming the UAE Cup in 2011 and the UK Cup in 2012. With LMP2 experience in the European Le Mans Series as well, James has a broad and varied racing portfolio.

 

JACK MITCHELL (GBR)

Jack made his British GT debut in 2016 with Macmillan Racing, driving the Aston Martin Vantage GT4. The 18-year-old from Kent began his racing career in karts, winning a host of regional titles. His car-racing debut came in 2012, in Ford Fiestas, before he graduated to the Ginetta Junior Championship, winning the 2014 title. He remained in tin-tops for 2015, combining Renault Clio Cup and Mini Challenge campaigns, before joining Macmillan Racing last season. He and team-mate Matty Graham finished 5th in the points, having posted a number of podium finishes, in their rookie season.

 

JAN JØNCK (DEN)

18-year-old Jan cut his racing teeth in his native Denmark. His karting career included Danish and Nordic titles as a Junior, before he graduated to single-seaters. His open-wheel debut came in the Italian F4 winter series, before he embarked on a 2014 Danish Formula Ford campaign that saw him finish as Championship runner-up, with 7 wins among 15 podium finishes. He built his experience through 2015 in the German F4 series, before joining the British Formula 3 grid for 2016. Spurred on by the success of fellow Danes in sportscar racing, he makes his endurance racing debut with Macmillan Racing’s Aston Martin GT4 in 2017.

 

WILL PHILLIPS (GBR)

Will joins Macmillan Racing with a season of British GT racing under his belt, in a GT4 Ginetta. His car racing career began before he’d ever driven a car on the road, when he was a finalist in the Ginetta Junior Scholarship. He made his racing debut, aged 18, in the 2013 BRSCC Mazda Championship, moving to the MINI Challenge the following season. He claimed two wins and 11 podium finishes in the Cooper class, graduating to the top flight for 2015, finishing 5th in the points. Will’s British GT debut followed last season, when he and his team-mate helped their squad to the GT4 Teams’ title.
