Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Strat­ton Mo­tor­sport will run at least two Lotus Evo­ras in Bri­tish GT this year in part­ner­ship with Ul­tratek Rac­ing, with James Nash again spear­head­ing the team.

For­mer tour­ing car race win­ner Nash will again part­ner Richard Taffinder in one of the GT4 cars, while Tim Eakin will drive an­other along­side Martin Plow­man – who con­tested the open­ing round with the team last year.

Taffinder and Nash fin­ished 18th and 19th in the class stand­ings in 2016. “Last year was a good learn­ing curve with the car and we learned a lot,” said Strat­ton boss Roger Bennington. “We’ve now got high hopes as we’ve got con­sis­tency.”

Strat­ton is still fi­nal­is­ing its full line-up and could run an­other Evora and As­ton Martin Van­tages in the GT4 class.
