2011 Ginetta GT Supercup frontrunner George Murrells is preparing for his first race action of 2012 next weekend when he competes in the Dunlop Dubai 24 Hour race, starting off a season in which he could combine Britcar and British GT campaigns.

Murrells sticks with the Optimum Motorsport team with whom he ran in 2011 for the Supercup series, the team running a Ginetta G50 GT4 car. Murrells will team up with Lee Mowle, Gary Simms and Joe Osbourne.

Optimum Motorsport have also recently acquired one of the new 540bhp Ginetta G55 GT3 machines, the team's first move up to the GT3 class. The car will run in the 2012 MSA British Endurance Championship (Britcar), with Murrells and Mowle at the wheel, as well as the 2012 Avon Tyres British GT Championship. The driver line up for the British GT championship is undecided, though Murrells is one of the drivers in the reckoning.
