Drives available with Optimum Motorsport for the British GT

For almost 25 years, the British GT Championship has been an intrinsic part of the UK’s national motorsport fabric. But, having undergone a number of changes over that quarter of a century, it’s difficult to envisage an era more competitive than the current GT3 and GT4 format.

 

We are looking for suitably funded drivers to race our Audi R8 LMS and Ginetta G55 in the 2017 British GT Championship.

14-0003GT3 Class

We became the first team to field the latest generation Audi R8 LMS GT3 in the 2016 British GT Championship and we’re on the hunt for a strong Pro-Am driver pairing to unlock the car’s true potential during the seven-part 2017 schedule.

 

GT4 class

Opportunities exist for suitably funded drivers to enter the British GT Championship’s GT4 division with our multiple race and title-winning Ginetta G55.

We notched up a second GT4 championship with the flourishing British sportscar marque in 2016 and it is our intention to defend our crown in what will surely be another intensely competitive season.
