Earlier this year, Team BRIT announced its breakthrough into GT4 racing as they unveiled its Aston martin V8 Vantage. This highlighted Team BRIT’s ambition to reach its goal of racing in the 24 hour endurance race at Le Mans.
On Saturday 12th May, the team took part in its first GT race at Oulton Park. The Team kicked off GT racing in fine form as the Aston Martin placed P1 in class in this debut run out. Military veterans, Warren McKinlay and Jimmy Hill were the drivers for the day and the whole team was delighted with the victory.
CEO and Founder of Team BRIT, Dave Player said,
“We couldn’t have asked for a better weekend. Moving to GT4 racing is a huge step forward for us as a team and also for the individual drivers. We are dedicating ourselves 100% to our goals of reaching Le Mans and of changing the motorsport industry so that disabled drivers can compete on equal terms. Our success this weekend is a reflection of this dedication and we look forward to showing what we can do at our next race – the Aston Martin Le Mans Festival.”
Totally Wicked was showing its support at Oulton Park and Team BRIT were more than happy to accommodate us. We met the team, received signed merchandise and were taught about the intricate hand controls.
Neil and Jonny from Totally Wicked even got behind the wheel of the new car. However, I think a test drive is a bit beyond them as getting in and out the vehicle was enough of a challenge for the two.
A P1 in class finish, vaping freebies, Totally Wicked support and the sun was even shining. It was a great day all round and we hope Team BRIT continues this great GT racing form.
Team BRIT’s next race is on the iconic Le Mans race circuit in the Aston Martin Le Mans Festival on the 16th June. They will be the first all-disabled team to race on the circuit.
