Whilst on the long circuits, the Ginetta GT4 Supercup caught Carl's eye and the Eurocar changed hands whilst the Pick Up was 'parked up'. In his first year of racing in Ginetta GT4 Supercup, Carl finished third in the Championship and life was good. A health issue and a year full of bad luck followed, but by early 2018 another GT4 had been delivered from the Ginetta Factory and this time it was to be maintained by Team Hard in Kent to allow Carl the time to concentrate on the Family Business and Family - although he still managed to design, develop and start production of the Ginetta National Hot Rod in the interim!
With most of the Team reunited, the 2018 campaign was successful to say the least with six wins, fourteen podium finishes and no DNF's! A midsummer one - off outing in the vacant Jake Hill's Team Hard VWCC BTCC Racer at Knockhill was enough to wet Carl's appetite for BTCC action and whilst the Ginetta GT4 Supercup campaign went to the wire with a runner - up spot, the seed had been sewn and upon 2018 season end, Carl joined the 2019 Kwikfit/MSA BTCC Championship Year and took his place on the grid in a much - revamped Team Hard VWCC.
