Keen and Minshaw sign up for British GT return in Lamborghini
British GT challengers Jon Minshaw and Phil Keen have re-signed with the Barwell Motorsport team for another shot at the title next year.
Minshaw and Keen played a key part in the race for this year’s title, guiding their Lamborghini Huracan GT3 to three victories from the final five races. They missed the title when Minshaw crashed out of the season finale at Donington Park, instead finishing second.
Minshaw, who will enter his sixth British GT season and fifth alongside Keen, said: “I’m very happy to stay with Barwell and I’m sure that in our second year with the Huracan we will be even stronger.
“It’s great to have Keeny back with me, he did a great job this season and keeps getting better. Hopefully we can go one better next year and win the title.”
Barwell head Mark Lemmer added: “This will be Jon and Phil’s third season with Barwell, and their fantastic results in 2016 show how valuable continuity within the team is. We have all of the ingredients in place once again to challenge for the title.”
Barwell is expected to field two Huracans again next year, and is in talks with other parties over the second car.
