Rapid GT convert Seb Morris will once again partner Rick Parfitt Jr. in a Team Parker Racing Bentley Continental GT3 as the pair set their sights on the British GT Championship title.
Morris and Parfitt were within touching distance of the title last year, before their form faded in the second half of the season. Now though, with backing from Ast Transport Branding, they have their eyes firmly set on claiming the title.
Morris said: “I’m extremely excited to mount a full title assault on the British GT Championship with this amazing team of people once again and, of course, the best manufacturer on the grid – Bentley. I’m also honoured to have the amazing support of Eddie Stobart, as we move around the championship challenge venues.
“I believe with the changes we have made over the winter with the help of M-Sport and Bentley, plus the driver pairing, we really will have the whole package this year. It’s a dream come true to be able to do this again with a year of experience behind us. I can’t wait to get going, most importantly we are here to win the championship – that’s the goal.”
The ex-GP3 racer might not have won the title, but his good results did see him win the Sunoco Whelen Challenge, with a prize drive at the Rolex 24 at Daytona.
For Parfitt though, he’s just focussing on claiming the title – especially after it was confirmed that every crew in last year’s top four will return. He said: “I’m hugely excited to be back in British GT with the Team Parker Racing Bentley and with Seb as my team-mate. We proved we were a great pairing last year, and only narrowly missed out on the title in our debut year. We now know the car and team much better and I’m really looking forward to mounting a serious title assault. The ‘Dream Team’ is back!”
They will be joining teammates Ian Loggie and Callum MacLeod as they announce a full-season British GT campaign after a number of seasons in the Blancpain GT Series.
