The Professional MotorSport World Expo British GT4 car has won the 2016 British GT Championship’s GT4 class.

Professional MotorSport World Expo drivers Graham Johnson and Mike Robinson (son of the show founder Tony Robinson) entered the last round just two-and-a-half points ahead of arch rivals Aston Martin…

The final round of British GT was held ​on 11 September 2016 at ​Donington Park, with 19 GT4 contenders. Robinson and Johnson​ in their Ginetta G55​ qualified third on the grid behind title rival​s Beechdean Aston Martin​ on pole​, but Johnson quickly demonstrated the PMW Expo’s Championship intentions by overtaking ​on the​ ​first corner​​ of the first lap of the two-hour race. From there, the duo never looked back and ​they ​claimed their sixth podium of the year, finishing third -​ and grabbing enough points to win the 2016 Championship!

Tony Robinson,​ the man who created PMW Expo and the CEO of UKIP Media & Events​, said, “Our British GT triumph illustrates​​ our​ commitment​ ​to​ motorsport. We’ve had a great year in British GT and it’s especially pleasing to see my son do so well teamed up with the company’s managing director (Graham Johnson). Elsewhere our sponsorship includes supporting other up-and-coming racers including another member of staff competing in the Production GTi Championship in a Golf;​ and ​in Germany our sponsorship of the ETCC series continues in 2016, with support going to the youngest ever racer in the series, 16-year-old Tomáš Korený.”

This year’s PMW Expo takes place from 9-11 November in Cologne, Germany, with over 230 exhibitors showcasing the latest in motorsport technologies, innovation and services. Catch up with Ginetta at the Expo!
