Team BRIT is announcing its formal entry into the Britcar Trophy Championship and newly formed British Endurance Championship in 2022.
Following yet another year of sustained growth, the all-disabled team will field three cars across the two championships, whilst entering its new McLaren 570S GT4 in the British GT Championship.
The team aims to become the first ever all-disabled team to race in the Le Mans 24 hour and is successfully creating a ladder of development for disabled racers.
2022 will see drivers Andy Tucker and Luke Pound move up to the British Endurance Championship, driving the team’s Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT4, taking the baton from this year’s Aston drivers Bobby Trundley and Aaron Morgan.
Andy and Luke delivered fantastic performances in the Trophy Category of the Britcar Championship this year, with Andy securing an overall P3 class finish in the BMW M240i and Luke finishing P5 in class in the BMW 118i. Both drivers secured silverware in the final race of the season.
Joining the grid for the first time will be new drivers Chris Overend and James Whitley who will compete in the Britcar Trophy Championship in the BMW M240i. Also hoping to race in 2022 will be rookie drivers Tyrone Mathurin, Anji Silva-Vagdama and Paul Fullick who have each started their rookie development programmes.
Team BRIT founder Dave Player says, “We started racing in the Britcar Championship in 2019 and we’ve been continually impressed by the standard of the race organisation and the professionalism of Claire and her team.
“With Le Mans in our sights, we want our drivers to begin high-standard endurance racing as soon as they start their racing career and Britcar offers just that. We’re also very proud to be competing in the inaugural season of the British Endurance Championship and I know that Andy and Luke, along with our new rookies, will be giving everything they can to start the season as they mean to go on – securing valuable points and podiums. Here’s to 2022.”
