Hammerton fills the seat vacated by Michael Caine after Carl Boardley temporarily took the reigns for the Knockhill race weekend.
The 17-year-old overcame more than 100 competitors to win a Team HARD young driver scholarship and has since been racing in the Volkswagen Cup with the stable. He steps up to Britain’s premier motor racing series, fulfilling a lifelong ambition.
Previously, he achieved second place finishes in the Renault UK Clio Cup Junior and the Junior Saloon Car Championship in 2017.
