James Dorlin and Alex Toth-Jones return to the Intelligent Money British GT Championship season finale at Silverstone aboard a MSL Powered by Newbridge Motorsport Aston Martin Vantage GT4.

The team will make their British GT debut this weekend and their entry completes an impressive bumper line-up, comfortably British GT’s largest of the season, for the season finale, the Silverstone 500.

Dorlin and Toth-Jones competed in the GT4 class last year, for Tolman and Academy respectively, before switching to the new-for-2020 Porsche Sprint Challenge GB series.

They now team-up with the MSL Powered by Newbridge Motorsport squad which has already claimed three victories in the GT Cup with the same Aston Martin this season.

Dorlin, who will also be competing in the Cayman based sprint series which he currently leads this weekend, won a race en route to sixth in last year’s British GT4 standings.

His co-driver, Toth-Jones, also raced Aston Martin’s current GT4 contender in 2019 before claiming GT Cup victory with Newbridge’s example last month.

“I’m really looking forward to the Silverstone 500. Racing in both the Aston Martin in British GT and the Porsche in Sprint Challenge GB on the same day is going to be exciting for sure!” said Dorlin.

“We are on the brink of claiming the title in Porsche Sprint Challenge GB, so I want to get that done and then focus on having a strong outing in the Aston.

I’m very grateful to MSL Motorsport Consultancy and my sponsors for making this a reality.”

Covid measures will prevent spectators from attending British GT’s Silverstone 500..

However, fans around the world can watch the three-hour season finale live on British GT’s Facebook page and website, as well as SRO’s GT World Youtube channel, from 12:50 GMT on November 8.

Sports Car and GT writer. Perhaps being named after James Hunt and Murray Walker (first and middle names) might have something to do with how I have always been motorsport obsessed. After failing to get int racing, I might as well write about it.
