Team Bullrun will move into the Britcar MSA British Endurance Championship this season, seeking to add a GT title to the pair garnered in the Production categories of Britcar competition.
The team – with drivers Richard Adams and David Green won the Production Three title in 2009 in a Honda Civic before taking the Production Two class last season in a nail-biting finale at Brand Hatch. In 2011 the team will make their first appearance in the GT classes, running a modified Ferrari 360.
The car will be prepared by Cavallino Motorsport – the same squad that were behind the MJC Ltd Ferrari that Witt Gamski and Keith Robinson drove to the GT title in 2010. Cavallino will continue to prepare MJC's entrant alongside Team Bullrun's car – the two teams to be run from adjoining garages. Richard Adams admits to looking forward to “a lot of fun and rivalry with the MJC team”, building on a year of mutual success last year.
“We had always thought about a move up to GT but were waiting for the right time,” said Adams, “having managed to pick up two titles in two seasons in the Production Championship, we were looking for a new challenge – when Britcar announced that they had secured MSA accreditation for the coming season, the decision for us as drivers at least, was a relatively easy one. We then had to pull on all the resources we could to ensure that we had the right car, pit crew and support package.”
The team have been able to strengthen over the off-season, adding Martin Byford to the driving squad and adding Oval Insurance as secondary sponsors.
Having only received the car this week Team Bullrun now have a very limited amount of time to prepare the car for a pre-season testing program and the Britcar Championship Launch at Silverstone on March 10.
