Not 17 until next year, Henry has signed to drive for Team-HARD. for the next round of the Volkswagen Racing Cup at Snetterton. Driving the REVO Tuned black Scholarship car that Tony used to win at Spa!!

Henry said on signing; I am extremely happy and excited to have been given the opportunity by Tony Gilham to compete in the VW Cup this coming weekend at Snetterton.
I have always admired Tony’s professionalism and can’t wait to work with him and The Team-HARD. Crew. The VW Cup has a fantastic following and I cant wait to be part of it.

Henry’s dad Robert added; “This is a great opportunity for Henry. VW is a fantastic brand and for Henry to now get the opportunity of racing one is brilliant, especially with Tony Gilham and his Team Hard. Henry loves the Mini and is doing extremely well in the series having adapted to it very well.

Henry is always looking for a new challenge to better himself and feels that this opportunity in The VW cup will give him a taste for the next step up in racing. Its a great opportunity in a great car with a great team.”

Tony expressed his excitment; “I am looking forward to working with Henry this weekend and seeing if he can bring his great form in the Mini championship to the VW Racing Cup!!”
