Witt looking to British GT with new Bentley GT3
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.”
