Chevron Enter British GT With Works Backed Car

1 Mins read

Chevron have confirmed they will join the grid of the 2011 British GT Championship with a works supported Chevron GR8, running in the series' GT Cup class.

The car will be driver by veteran racer Anthony Reid and 20-year-old Jordan Witt who will start just his second full year of car racing in 2011. Reid – a ex-BTCC driver, notably with Nissan and MG – was part of what Chevron describe as a “toe-in-the-water” entry in the final race of the 2010 season at Donington Park when he and Chris Hart finished as the best of the non-GT3 cars, beating the Ginettas that dominated the G4 class over the season.

The 2011 entry will feature the two litre Cosworth engined GR8 in a new spec, and Reid – who also has endurance racing experience including a Le Mans 24 Hour podium in 1990 – combining with Witt, who steps up after a successful season in the one make Chevron GR8 Challenge where collected 4 wins and 5 second places.

A very limited number of cars will be available for other teams to enter the Championship, with cars also able to run in the GR8 Challenge or Britcar series, Chevron Racing Cars managing director Helen Bashford-Malkie describing the car as “a low maintenance proposition”.

The 2011 British GT Championship begins on April 23-25 at Oulton Park, the Chevron team aiming to be “snapping at the heels of the GT3 cars” once again.
