GT Cup ri­vals Jor­dan Witt and Dar­ren Nel­son could team up for an as­sault on the next Bri­tish GT Cham­pi­onship rounds at Snet­ter­ton af­ter a test last week.

I think I have to be more ag­gres­sive in my car than I did in the Bentley though, but won’t be con­sid­er­ing a change as there is still a lot to de­velop with my car.”
