Fans behind the YourRacingCar.com scheme have seen their car hit the track after Fluvio Mussi completed a day of running at the wheel of his Ginetta G50 at Silverstone.

Mussi will tackle the BTCC-supporting Ginetta G50 Cup at the wheel of the car, which will be run by leading outfit Total Control Racing - a team he has worked with in the past.

The test marked the latest milestone for the project, which aims to raise the funds needed for the racing programme through race fans, who then receive range of different benefits over the course of the year and also get chance to have their name featured on the car.

"It is fantastic to see our car on the track after all the months of hard work to create the innovative funding package for the team," YRC club manager Hannah James said. "We always knew that if we offered fans something totally different they would join us, and having managed to put a package of perks together which represents real savings on the things that fans want, we seem to have got it right.

"It hasn't been easy, but getting the car on track today was just brilliant. YourRacingCar.com members should be proud of themselves for being part of the future of motorsport. Many thanks to all of those who have signed up to www.YourRacingCar.com in the last few weeks, and we look forward to welcoming more members as the season approaches fast now."
