Bar­well to field third Hu­ra­can in Bri­tish GT

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Bar­well Mo­tor­sport will field a third Lam­borgh­ini Hu­ra­can in se­lected Bri­tish GT rounds this year, along­side a full cam­paign in the Blancpain En­durance Cup.

The squad will en­ter two fac­tory-backed Hu­ra­cans in the pan-euro­pean Blancpain class for Mark Poole, Richard Abra and Joe Os­borne this year. In ad­di­tion, that car will also run in a hand­ful of Bri­tish GT events, in­clud­ing the show­piece Sil­ver­stone 500 three-hour race. Bar­well’s se­cond Blancpain crew will be re­vealed in the com­ing weeks.

Bar­well will field two Hu­ra­cans full-time in Bri­tain, hav­ing signed Jon Min­shaw and Phil Keen for one car and Liam Grif­fin for the se­cond with Fabio Babini and Alexan­der Sims ro­tat­ing pro driver duty along­side him.

So far, Poole is the only driver con­firmed for the third Hu­ra­can when it runs in Bri­tain.

Team head Mark Lem­mer said: “Mark [Poole] wanted to do some ex­tra rac­ing around Blancpain so we’ll be do­ing Sil­ver­stone and Spa with three cars en­tered un­der the Bar­well ban­ner.

“The sup­port from Lam­borgh­ini has been bril­liant and we’ve been in con­stant con­tact with the fac­tory.”

Two of Bar­well’s cars will run for the first time in a pri­vate test at Va­len­cia in Spain this week.
