Os­borne and Mowle look else­where af­ter skip­ping Don­ing­ton Park fi­nale

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Joe Os­borne and Lee Mowle will look to race in Europe next sea­son af­ter sit­ting out the fi­nal round of Bri­tish GT last week­end.

The AMD Tun­ing pair opted not to run their BMW Z4 GT3 in the last round while they sell the car ahead of up­grad­ing to new ma­chin­ery for 2017. The with­drawal also fol­lows the team’s spat with Bri­tish GT stew­ards af­ter they were stripped of a race win for a col­li­sion dur­ing the last round at Snet­ter­ton.

Os­borne said: “Lee has done four years of Bri­tish GT so the plan is to move on and he had the chance to sell the car in one piece, so it made sense not to race.

“For next sea­son I think we’ll look to some­thing like the Blanc­pain Sprint, Miche­lin GT3 Cup or In­ter­na­tional GT Open as that’s a nat­u­ral pro­gres­sion. We never seemed to get the rub of the green in Bri­tish GT.”
