A comparatively ‘late’ starter in car racing, Michael Crees enjoyed a rapid rise up the British motorsport ladder, winning Ginetta’s GRDC+ title in his maiden campaign in 2017 before announcing himself to the TOCA paddock with a sensational display to clinch the ‘Am’ class crown in the 2018 Ginetta GT4 SuperCup – recording 11 victories and eight other podium finishes from 23 starts up against a number of more experienced rivals.
Having earned his stripes in Ginetta machinery, he then realised a lifelong dream by stepping up to the BTCC in 2019 with Team HARD.
He added to a points-scoring debut at Brands Hatch with a top ten finish at Silverstone towards the end of the season, and in 2020 Crees moves to front-running Independent outfit BTC Racing to pilot a Honda Civic Type R (FK8) under ‘The Clever Baggers with BTC Racing’ banner.
