TF Sport ready for British GT

TF Sport have their 2019 driver line-up ready for the British GT.

That will be a good mix of new and old at the British team with the blue cars.

Nicki Thiim will continue with Mark Farmer, while Jonny Adam and Graham Davidson are new in the GT3 cars. The GT3 cars are brand new from the Aston Martin factory.

Thiim/Farmer werr close at grabbing the title in 2018, but with some dropout during the season, they ended up missing 19,5 to the first position. The title was won by Jonny Adam, who raced alongside Flick Haigh, but she has chosen to go international racing. Adam won the Championship for Optimum Motorsport.

Marco Sørensen was behind the wheel of the other car in 2018, but he and Derek Johnston never really got going, despite a win mid-season. The latter chose to end his racing commitments at the end of the year, and the team then opted to grab the other Aston Martin works driver Adam instead.

Thiim is slowly getting a fixed member of the team, having raced European Le Mans Series for them in 2017, where they finished second in the GTE Championship. That made them move on to the FIA World Endurance Championship, but had to let go of Thiim in that, since Thiim is already racing there alongside Sørensen in GTE Pro, as you might know.

TF Sport is current third in the FIA World Endurance Championship GTE Am ranking, having finished second in three out of the five races so far in the 2018/19.

The team will also enter two Aston Martin Vantage GT4 cars, which will be driven by Tom Canning, Rory Collingbourne, Patrick Kibble and Josh Price.

Canning is the only of the four who has British GT experience. He made in 2018 in the GT4 category, where he raced for two different teams throughout the year.

Collingbourne has raced Renault Clio Cup UK, before joining the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Asia championship. He was back in Great Britain in 2018, racing half a season in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB, and grabbed two wins.

Kibble arrives from just a single season in the Ginetta Junior Championship, and is the least experienced of the four, having only raced karts prior to 2018.

Price has previously raced in the Renault Clio Cup UK, while he was both a BTCC and TCR UK Championship competitor in 2018.

British GT 2019 starts at Oulton Park on 22-23 April.
