Optimum Motorsport is to defend its British GT Championship GT3 title in 2019 with a new Aston Martin Vantage GT3.
The car will be driven by Ollie Wilkinson and 2007 BGT champion Bradley Ellis. The Optimum Motorsport duo will contest all but one of the seven-round British GT calendar, due to the Silverstone GP event clashing with GT Open at Spa-Francorchamps.
Shaun Goff, Optimum Motorsport’s team principal, said, “2018 was superb for us as we adapted to and showed our engineering strengths from the very start of the season.
“2019 brings a new chapter for us with the new GT3 car and we expect it to be a very tough battle in such a competitive championship.
“It’s a new championship for Ollie and we can’t forget that this is just his second full season at this level and that he’s still learning. Together with Bradley – who has tasted championship success in British GT – they have already proved to be a winning combination in GT Open, so even with the Silver-Silver disadvantages in terms of ballast, we look forward to the new season with optimism.”
The 2019 British GT Championship starts on April 20 at Oulton Park, Cheshire, UK.
