Witt look­ing to Bri­tish GT with new Bent­ley GT3

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Jor­dan Witt is aim­ing for a Bri­tish GT en­try next sea­son af­ter run­ning his new Bent­ley Con­ti­nen­tal GT3 in last week­end’s GT Cup races at Don­ing­ton Park.

Witt has swapped his fac­tory-run Chevron GR8 for the Con­ti­nen­tal, which was de­liv­ered just three weeks be­fore last week­end’s sea­sonopener at Don­ing­ton. The car was en­tered by Witt’s Jor­dan Racing team, but staffed by Porsche Car­rera Cup squad Red­line Racing.

Witt took a third and then won the sec­ond GT Cup race last week­end. He said he had big­ger plans for the car next sea­son.

“Racing with the Chevron was fun but we al­ways had trou­ble with ho­molo­ga­tion pa­pers when­ever we wanted to race it any­where, with the Bent­ley we have a univer­sal prod­uct that we can en­ter into any GT cham­pi­onship go­ing,” said Witt.

“GT3 is more like pro­to­type racing now and the grip lev­els are un­be­liev­able. We’ll stay in GT Cup this year to learn and then we’d like to do Bri­tish GT next sea­son.”

Red­line Racing head Simon Leonard said: “The Con­ti­nen­tal is dif­fer­ent to run than the Porsches we’re used to but is such a well-sorted ma­chine. It’s a new chal­lenge for us and for Jor­dan.”

Witt landed two wins in Bent­ley
