Barwell to field third Huracan in British GT
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.
