Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

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.
