Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

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.
