Originally Andy Meyrick was scheduled to partner Sansom but his other racing commitments now prevent him from doing so opening the door for Tregurtha to return to the championship. The change also sees Assetto’s Bentley Continental GT3 move from Pro-Am to Silver-Am – the fourth such entry to be confirmed so far.
For Tregurtha it will be his GT3 debut in the championship having won the GT4 championship with Stuart Middleton in 2017. Since then the 21 year old from Milton Keynes has concentrated his racing in Europe racing in Germany’s ADAC GT Masters series and the DTM Trophy where in 2021 he took two wins and nine podiums to finish second in the championship.
“I always hoped to return to British GT one day but didn’t expect it to happen this season in a Bentley!” he said. “I remember seeing the original announcement and thinking ‘wow, it would be cool to do that’ and now here I am gearing up for my first season in British GT’s senior class. Funny how things work out!
“But despite the late call up I feel 100% ready. I’ve raced at GT3’s top level in GT Masters, have the Pro-Am experience from GT Cup, and proved I have the individual speed by finishing second overall in a very competitive DTM Trophy season last year. I’ve also worked with Mark, so although the car is new to both of us and the team our existing relationship means we’re not starting from square one. Equally, the Bentley is quite similar in proportion and style to the Nissan GT-R I’ve driven extensively.”
Oulton Park hosts the opening round of British GT’s 30th season on April 16 & 18.
