This weekend will mark the last race of the British GT season and the end of Tom Onslow-Cole‘s first season in the championship, the 27-year-old has had a strong first year which includes a podium, finishing every race and scoring points in each of the five rounds in the Aston Martin Vantage GT3.
“I have been seriously impressed with the British GT Championship this year,” he commented. “The standard of both the PRO and the AM drivers is so high and the championship is really well run.”
“The key to winning this championship is consistency; We’ve not been at the front enough this year as a pair, but we have been consistently inside the top ten and finished every race, and the Vantage GT3 has enabled us to do that. It’s been fast at every circuit and always very reliable.”
Onslow-Cole moved away from the familiar territory of touring cars at the start of the year and switched to sportscars.
“Making the move into GTs was a difficult one for me but, having almost completed my first year in British GT, I’m extremely happy that I did. It’s definitely where my future lies and, right now, the future is looking pretty good.”
The final race in the British GT Championship takes place at Donington Park on Sunday and Onslow-Cole is looking forward to getting back on track in the Aston Martin alongside Paul White.
“Paul did an incredible job at Brands Hatch so we are confident going into Donington. I’m looking forward to the season finale but disappointed that the season is coming to an end. I’m busy looking into options for next year and having some interesting conversations, and I still have a lot of racing in Europe in the next few months,” he concluded.
