BTCC man Abbott joins Grasser Lamborghini for British GT at Spa
British Touring Car Championship racer Hunter Abbott will take part in the next round of the British GT Championship at Spa at the wheel of a Grasser Racing Lamborghini Huracan.
The 35-year-old will join the Austrian team’s regular racer, Swiss driver Rolf Ineichen, for the two-hour race in the Ardennes. Abbott, who raced GT cars between 2006 and 2009, usually races a Power Maxed Racing Chevrolet Cruze in the BTCC.
Abbott said: “My old GT engineer works for Grasser, and he got in touch about this chance. We are in the middle of a long break between BTCC races and this fitted in perfectly for me.
“It will be the first time that I have driven a car with all the electronic gizmos and things like that, so it will be a challenge. But what better a track to experience that on than at Spa.”
