This season’s Avon Tyres British GT Championship will feature even more cars with the latest news that series regulars Preci-Spark Engineering and Rosso Verde have signed up to race in 2013. Current entries for the leading national GT series are now in excess of 26 cars and this season looks set to be the best yet.
Preci-Spark Engineering’s Godfrey and David Jones will contest their Mercedes AMG SLS GT3 for the third successive season and the pair have already begun their season with a strong performance in the 24 hours of Dubai in early January, claiming runner-up spot in the amateur class, and a fifth place overall finish. The 2009 Drivers Champions are in for their tenth year in the series and the pair could be joined by at least one further Mercedes entry.
Gentleman driver, Hector Lester, also returns for his tenth season of British GT with the super-fast Allan Simonsen alongside him once more. Racing again under the Rosso Verde banner, the pair will be running a Ferrari 458 Italia GT3, the car they took to two podiums in a mini 2012 campaign. Lester and Simonsen last took a victory at Donington Park in 2010, something both drivers will be keen to put right this season.
Round one of the series is at Oulton Park in Cheshire over the Easter weekend (30th March & 1st April).
