Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

For­mer Bri­tish GTC cham­pion Adam Wil­cox will com­pete in the GT Cup this year, shar­ing an Audi R8 LMS Ul­tra with Nigel Hud­son.

The pair made spo­radic ap­pear­ances to­gether last sea­son, con­test­ing the fi­nal two rounds and tak­ing a podium fin­ish at Oul­ton Park. They will re­turn for the full year with the JMH Au­to­mo­tive team run­ning the Audi.

Wil­cox lifted the Bri­tish GTC ti­tle in 2004 rac­ing a Fer­rari 360 along­side Ni Amorim. Hud­son for­merly raced in the BRSCC’S Mazda MX-5 Cham­pi­onship. Wil­cox will share the car with Hud­son for the en­durance rounds, with Hud­son rac­ing solo in the sprints.

Wil­cox said: “I’m look­ing for­ward to this year and we’re work­ing on get­ting Nigel up to speed. He’s en­joy­ing the car, he’s had lim­ited ex­pe­ri­ence hav­ing only raced the Mazda but once he’s found his feet he’ll be quick.”
