British GT titles to be decided this weekend at Donington

Monday, September 17 2018

Champions will be crowned in the British GT Championship at Donington Park this weekend (22-23 September), as the Leicestershire circuit plays host to the deciding round of the series for the seventh successive year. 

The two-hour race for one of the world's most prestigious supercar racing series should be a dramatic contest, with Flick Haigh and Jonathan Adam on the verge of securing the main GT3 category and creating history in the process. Haigh would become the first female driver to win the overall British GT title, though she's up against two other crews who could also claim the title, and previous Donington deciders have thrown up all sorts of drama and surprises! 

Haigh and her co-driver Jonathan Adam pilot a mighty V12-powered Aston Martin Vantage, and are up against a screaming Lamborghini Huracan driven by Jon Minshaw and Phil Keen, and another Aston Martin Vantage controlled by Mark Farmer and Nicki Thiim. To throw more into the mixture, they're just part of the GT3 battle, with other stunning cars including Bentleys, Mercedes and Nissan GT-Rs in the field. 

There's also a five car battle for the GT4 category title, with cars from BMW, Aston Martin, McLaren and Ginetta set to go head to head to decide honours here. 

British GT is supported by the BRDC British F3 Championship, which could also be settled in favour of Swedish driver Linus Lundqvist. British F3 will also see Billy Monger make his competitive return to Donington Park, less than 18 months after his life changing accident. 

The 16 race timetable will also feature additional sportscar racing from the Ginetta GT5 Challenge and G40 Cup, while the MINI Challenge is one of the UK's most entertaining championships with thrill a minute action. In addition, the Volkswagen Racing Cup features touring car style racing, with big grids of the BRSCC Saloon and Sportscar Trophy completing the line-up.

Off-track, there will be stunning supercar displays in the paddocks, with the centrepiece being an incredible collection of Italian supercars, including one of the best De Tomaso Panteras in Europe and almost every model of Ferrari, including a car owned by Eric Clapton, with the display courtesy of David Morris. In addition, there will be dozens of other supercars to feast the eyes on, including examples from McLaren, Aston Martin and Maserati among others.

Racing action starts at 9.10 on both Saturday and Sunday, with the main Sunday raceday including 12 races, with the highlight being the two hour encounter for the British GT Championship. 

Tickets are available in advance and offer savings compared to the gate prices, and are available from £20 while children under-13 go free all weekend. For more information or to book, visit www.donington-park.co.uk.
