Team Parker Rac­ing will ex­pand to run­ning two Bent­ley Con­ti­nen­tal GT3S in both the Sil­ver­stone and Spa rounds of Bri­tish GT.

The team will run a sec­ond car for its Blanc­pain driv­ers Ian Log­gie and Cal­lum Macleod in the three-hour Sil­ver­stone 500 event, be­fore Bent­ley fac­tory driver Steven Kane joins the team and will part­ner Log­gie for the two-hour race in Bel­gium.

The sec­ond car will join full-sea­son en­try Rick Parfitt Jr and Seb Mor­ris on the grid.

Team head Stu­art Parker said: “There’s a larger grid ca­pac­ity for both Sil­ver­stone and Spa and it gives us the chance to give Ian some more mileage, and to work with a fac­tory driver like Steven is great.

“We’re de­lighted with how the Bent­ley deal is work­ing and the cars are prov­ing they are quick and can do the job. We al­ways wanted to run two cars in Bri­tish GT, so this gives us the chance to do that and maybe we can ex­pand to two full-sea­son en­tries next sea­son.”
