Motor Sport News - - Rac­ing News -

Bri­tish GT ti­tle win­ning squad Beechdean AMR will take a sab­bat­i­cal from Bri­tish GT in 2017.

The squad – which won the GT3 ti­tle in 2015 with Jonny Adam and team owner Andrew Howard – is com­pet­ing in the Euro­pean Le Mans Se­ries, Le Mans and a num­ber of other SRO-sanc­tioned events in 2017.

Howard has stated that the right driver line-up didn’t ma­te­ri­alise for the team in the lead up to the Bri­tish GT sea­son.

“If I’m hon­est, I want to run peo­ple who are the right peo­ple for the team,” he said. “And with a proven record like we have in Bri­tish GT, I want to make sure that’s right. Un­for­tu­nately that hasn’t pulled to­gether.”

Howard is com­pet­ing in the Euro­pean Le Mans Se­ries this year be­fore also com­pet­ing at Le Mans. The squad has un­con­firmed plans of com­pet­ing in the Blanc­pain Sprint Se­ries and at Spa.
