Bai­ley and Schulz to re­turn to the GT Cup

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

GTO cham­pi­ons Paul Bai­ley and Andy Schulz will re­turn to the GT Cup this year, swap­ping to the GTC class.

The duo will switch from an As­ton Martin Van­tage GT3 to a Fer­rari 458 Chal­lenge, which will be en­tered by SB Race En­gi­neer­ing.

“Andy and I are look­ing for­ward to an­other suc­cess­ful year with GT Cup,” said Bai­ley. “The de­ci­sion at the end of the year was to come back and de­fend the GTO ti­tle or to try in an­other ti­tle. I like the idea of go­ing for a dif­fer­ent ti­tle as I don’t think any­one has done that be­fore in GT Cup. We will also still be in con­tention for the over­all ti­tle as well.”

Bai­ley will re­turn to the se­ries af­ter a crash in Malta last Oc­to­ber when he lost con­trol of a Porsche Spy­der and it ploughed into spec­ta­tors, in­jur­ing more than 20 peo­ple.
