British GT crew Farmer and Barnes to GT Open
British GT men Mark Farmer and Jon Barnes will warm up for their title challenge next season by joining the International GT Open grid at Barcelona this weekend.
The pair, who finished fourth in British GT this year and took their maiden race win together at Spa-francorchamps, will share a second Aston Martin Vantage GT3 entry from TF Sport. Salih Yoluc and Euan Hankey will race TF’S other Vantage in the event.
TF boss Tom Ferrier said: “I’m delighted to welcome Jon and Mark to our GT Open programme. It’s a very positive thing for the team to run two cars in the series and it’s timely for the drivers too as it will keep them fresh and in the zone over the long winter break.”
Farmer and Barnes will return to British GT next year as part of an unchanged line-up from TF Sport, with reigning champions Derek Johnston and Jonathan Adam in the sister car.
