Also confirmed are BTCC driver and Team-HARD boss Tony Gilham, Ginetta GT Supercup youngsters Max Coates and Tom Ingram and Zoe Wenham, following her debut season and second place finish in the GT4 class of the Avon Tyres British Tyres Championship. Josh Files, Laura Tillett, Ollie Chadwick, Phil Glew and Jade Edwards will also be on stage.
A glimpse into international motorsport will be offered by several drivers, including Oli Webb, who moved into the US Indy Lights championship for 2012, European Formula Three driver Emil Bernstorff and Aaron Scott, who has run in both the British GT Championship with Scuderia Vittoria and in the Blancpain Endurance Series with GT3 Racing.
