Patrick Kibble will be making his debut in the British GT, GT4 Class for the 2019 season after signing for TF Sport to drive the brand-new Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT4 in the nine-round series.
After discovering motorsport at a young age, Patrick has been karting for the last 8 years across the UK and in Europe. Now the talented 16-year-old is fresh off the back of a hugely successful season in the Ginetta Junior Championship and joins the sports management company’s impressive array of professional and young driving talent as he looks to take the next step in his promising junior career.
Having won Championships on the karting scene, 2018 saw Patrick competing at the tight end of an ultra-competitive Ginetta Junior field where he collected one outright victory and nine outright podium finishes on his way to finishing in 4th in the Drivers’ Championship. As a rookie and with limited pre-season testing, Patrick’s results proved all the more impressive as he ended the season as Vice-Champion in the Rookie Championship, notching numerous rookie wins and podium finishes along the way. Highlighting Patrick’s ability his race win at Thruxton was only his sixth race in a car, in the previous 10 Ginetta Junior seasons, only three drivers have taken a race win in fewer starts.
Prior to his Ginetta Junior participation, Patrick enjoyed prolonged success across an eight-year career in British and European karting. Competing across the karting ranks as a ‘privateer’, Patrick’s junior success was made all the more impressive by the lack of comparable data from teammates to utilise.
