HOOKER AND COLE REUTRN TO GNM FOR SILVERSTONE 1000KMS

Ryan Hooker and Ricky Cole will drive for Graham Nash Motorsport (GNM) at this weekend's Silverstone 1000kms race.

The 2 young up and coming GT drivers will share a Saleen S7-R with a third driver who will be named shortly.

Talking about the deal GNM Sporting Director Andy Woolgar commented "I am very pleased to have Ryan and Ricky in the same car and in the LMES race where I feel we stand a very good chance of success this weekend. Both drivers have driven with GNM this year but this will be the first time they have shared a Saleen. Judging by their individual performances for us this year, they will both do a very good job. Both have scored valuable points in FIA and LMES races respectively and I think they are both ready to compete at this high level".

Ryan Hooker added "This is where I want to be. Racing with GNM is great. The team treat me like a family member and I really feel I can learn a lot and give the team some valuable input. The LMES race is a very big event and I am pleased to be involved".

Aidan Cole, Father and Manager of Ricky added "I am very pleased that Ricky is back with GNM. He came 4th in the Spa 1000kms and we will be hoping for a podium this weekend. It will be tough and we are not underestimating the opposition. Like Ryan, Ricky is meant to be racing in International competition and I am pleased they are paiting up on a circuit they both know well".

Woolgar continued "The third driver will be announced shortly. He is an experienced GT driver and one we know well. I think he will compliment Ryan and Rucky very well. Lat year we scord a 3rd place at Silverstone. The opposition this year is incredibly hard but we do have a chance just like everyone else".
