Team WFR are to return to the Avon Tyres British GT Championship in 2012 with a two car Ginetta line-up.

The squad are reported to be entering one car – presumably a G55, the style of which Rollcentre debuted at the 2011 finale at Silverstone – into the GT3 and one into the GT4 class.

“The decision to return to the British GT Championship with a British built car reflects our commitment to British racing in 2012,” said Team WFR Managing Director Myles Schofield. “Although we haven't yet confirmed our drivers for the forthcoming season we have a shortlist of targets and hope to be able to announce them very soon.”

“We haven't yet taken delivery of the cars but we expect to receive them some time after Christmas and have a comprehensive testing programme planned before the start of the season.”

Having also competed under the Embassy Racing banner the team entered the British GT Championship in both 2004 and 2005, narrowly missing out on the title in their second year, while scoring several wins in a successful season.

Since then their racing has taken across Europe in the Le Mans Series until 2008.

More recently the team have competed in the Speed Euro Series, winning the 2011 with the WF03 chassis of their own design.
