Sharp will replace Ginetta factory driver Michael Simpson for the meeting on 27-29 June, teaming up with Ginetta Chairman Lawrence Tomlinson for round four of the seven race championship.

They will be racing in Team LNT’s Ginetta G55 GT3, the same model Sharp drives in the Avon Tyres British GT Championship with the IDL Racing with CWS team, experience the 22 year old feels will be crucial as he aims to hit the ground running at Dijon.

Team LNT have been front-runners in the VdeV championship throughout 2014 so far, getting two pole positions in the first three races, including last time out at Paul Ricard, and setting the fastest lap in the other race at Le Mans.

With that potential shown, Sharp is looking forward to the challenge of competing at the front of the VdeV field, with the team targeting victory after a positive test at the circuit in early May.

Tom Sharp: “I'm really looking forward to racing the Ginetta G55 GT3 with Team LNT in the VdeV series. I've learn a lot driving the car over the last eighteen months in the British GT Championship, so I will be looking for a strong result. I was really happy with the two days of testing alongside Lawrence Tomlinson last month in Dijon, and I can’t wait to get started.”

Prior to his V de V outing, Sharp will be continuing his 2014 Avon Tyres British GT Championship campaign at Snetterton in Norfolk this weekend (June 21-22).
