Renowned British racing outfit, Garage 59, has set the stage for an electrifying return to the British GT Championship with a formidable roster boasting two McLaren 720S GT3 Evos for the upcoming 2024 campaign. With an agonizingly close miss in the previous season, falling just half a point short of Silver-Am Championship glory, Garage 59 is determined to leave no stone unturned in their pursuit of success this year.

In a striking display of automotive prowess, the team introduces a captivating duo of McLaren 720S GT3 Evos, each adorned with distinct liveries that reflect the team’s vibrant spirit and heritage.

In the orange corner, adorned with the eye-catching Cazoo livery, fans can expect to witness the dynamic duo of Marcus Clutton and Morgan Tillbrook. Having previously showcased their winning synergy under the Enduro Motorsport banner, Clutton and Tillbrook join forces with Garage 59 for the 2024 season, armed with the ambition to expand upon their impressive track record, which includes three triumphant victories.

Expressing his enthusiasm for the collaboration, Clutton remarked, “We believe that aligning with Garage 59 provides the final piece of the puzzle for our championship aspirations. With the team’s expertise handling logistical concerns, we can channel our focus entirely towards our preparation and performance on the track.”

In the blue and yellow corner, adorned with the iconic Duckhams livery, reigning Porsche Carrera Cup GB Champion Adam Smalley will make his British GT Championship debut in the Silver-Am category alongside seasoned campaigner Shaun Balfe. Fresh from his championship victory, Smalley embarks on a new chapter in his motorsport journey, brimming with confidence and determination.
