➤ A year later than anticipated, Martin Plowman and Kelvin Fletcher will make their GT3 debut in the JRM Bentley. The 2019 GT4 pro-am champions were initially set to compete in last year’s championship before the Covid-19 pandemic took hold and postponed their plans. Piloting the Gen 2 Bentley Continental GT, they hope to follow in the footsteps of Seb Morris and Richard Parfitt Jr. and claim the overall title. Our full report can be found HERE.

➤ Former GT4 competitor, Abbie Eaton has been spotted testing a JMH Motorsport Lamborghini at Silverstone. Having already announced a partial Britcar programme, it looks likely that Abbie will make some appearances in GT Cup this year too. JMH regular, Jamie Stanley has also been out testing the same car so there is potential there for them to share driving duties alongside John Seale.
➤ It’s been a big week for Plowman and Fletcher. Their new Paddock Motorsport McLaren has been testing at Snetterton with young gun, Moh Ritson behind the wheel. Fetching a stylish red and white livery, they will be hoping for a strong campaign amongst tough competition this year.
