Andrey Borodin and Oli Webb will contest this year’s Intelligent Money British GT Championship driving a McLaren 720s GT3 with Greystone GT.
Both made appearances in the 2022 British GT Championship when Borodin partnered Ed Pead at Brands Hatch and the Donington Decider while Webb raced alongside Iain Campbell at Spa.
However, the Pro-Am duo will now contest all seven events together in what could become a two-car Greystone GT effort this year.
Greystone GT added a race team to its high performance test day business in October 2020 and made its British GT debut two years later, initially with a full-season entry for Stewart and Lewis Proctor who collected several Silver-Am class podiums, and latterly race-by-race appearances with other cars.
Borodin – who began racing in 2020 – has also previously driven the 720S GT3 in GT Cup while Webb’s CV includes a European Le Mans Series title, regular FIA WEC appearances, Formula Renault 3.5 and a British GT outing at Rockingham as far back as 2013.
“It’s super-exciting to be racing full-time in British GT for the first time,” said Webb. “Before I joined Greystone GT I hadn’t done a UK series since F3 a decade earlier, but all the tracks came back quite easily. Greystone GT feels like a home from home and it’s a great feeling to arrive at a track knowing your car is going to be fast, consistent and extremely well-prepared.
“Andrey has a lot of potential, but right now is pretty light on experience compared to most of the other Am drivers we expect to be up against. That means we’ve set realistic targets in terms of pace and consistency through the first half of the season with the aim of looking at good results from mid-season onwards. I can’t wait to get started.”
Greystone GT team principal Mark McLoughlin added: “To be able to come into British GT last year as a relatively new team and instantly make it onto the podium in the Silver-Am class was a fantastic achievement. It’s one of the highest-level domestic series in the world, so to be in a position to score strong results and fight for class wins was very good.
“Andrey made his own mark on the series at Donington with an excellent top-10 overall qualifying result and a Silver-Am podium and I think that gives us a great platform on which to build this year. In Oli we have an excellent pro driver alongside him who, along with Ed [Pead, Driver Coach] will be instrumental in Andrey’s development across the year as we aim to challenge for the best results we can possibly achieve.”
Donington hosts British GT’s media day on March 14 before Oulton Park opens this year’s campaign less than one month later (April 8 & 10).
