Gunn to finish British GT season in GT4 to help title challenge
Ross Gunn will remain in Beechdean AMR’S GT4 line-up for the remainder of the season to help Jack Bartholomew fight for the squad’s third consecutive drivers’ championship.
Reigning GT4 champion Gunn began the season sharing Andrew Howard’s Gt3-spec Aston Martin Vantage, but was placed alongside Bartholomew for last weekend’s double header at Snetterton when the GT3 was ruled out by damage and regular GT4 driver Jordan Albert was forced to step aside.
Gunn and Bartholomew took a race win and a second place to elevate Bartholomew to within 2.5 points of championship leaders Graham Johnson and Mike Robinson in the Optimum Motorsport Ginetta G55.
The final round of this year’s championship is a two-hour race at Donington Park on September 10/11.
Beechdean head Howard said: “Ross will stay in GT4 for the remainder of the season because Beechdean is a team effort and it’s now about throwing our weight behind a car that’s well in the championship fight and trying to bring the title here again.
“Both Ross and Jack did a superb job last weekend in difficult circumstances, and for Ross to jump back into GT4 with a new team-mate shows he’s a true professional.”
Howard added that he would be back out in the GT3 for Donington, and was in talks with prospective team-mates to share the car.
