British GT 2020 is go...

The British GT 2020 season is go as the annual media day at Snetterton revealed the full line-up for the year.


With 19 GT3 cars and 16 GT4s the 2020 season is at full capacity, the largest since 2014. There will be additional race-by-race entries from Silverstone.


The increase in GT3 numbers is part due to the 2019 Pro/Am champions now in a Bentley GT3 and Tom Canning moving on to GT3 after winning the 2019 GT4 title. The 2019 GT3 Champions return still with TF-Sport, but now split up. Jonny Adam is after a fifth title, while Graham Davidson is hoping to be the first amateur to successfully defend the title.

Barwell Motorsport are hoping that their pairing of Phil Keen and Adam Balon can finally claim the GT3 Drivers title. They are yet to announce the second pairing.

A total of six different manufactures are represented in the GT3 field while a seventh is yet to be revealed.


In GT4 McLaren are the favoured choice with no fewer than eight 570S on the grid. Aston Martin are back with TF-Sport to try and defend both titles. The second TF-Sport Aston will be piloted by Jamie Caroline (British F4 and Ginetta Junior Champion) and Daniel Vaughan (Porsche Carrera Cup GB).


Two former champions are again contesting the GT4 title. Graham Johnson in a Balfe Motorsport McLaren and Matt Nicol-Jones in a Academy Motorsport Mustang. There are also no less than four McLaren Development drivers all placed with Tolman Motorsport.

Optimum Motorsport have changed from running Aston Martins to McLarens and have new drivers for 2020.

Century Motorsport were absent from the media day as their BMW M4 GT4 was stuck in a container after contesting the Dubai 24hr. They are yet to announce the second pairing having confirmed already Andrew Gordon-Colebrooke and Ben Hunt.


The first race of the year will be at Oulton Park again over the Easter Weekend (April 11 and 13).
