BARWELL MOTORSPORT CONFIRMS TWO-CAR ENDURANCE CUP ASSULT FOR 2019

Barwell Motorsport confirms two-car Endurance Cup assault for 2019

The British outfit will run the new Lamborghini Huracan GT3 Evo this term, continuing its successful relationship with the Italian marque. Barwell enjoyed a particularly impressive 2018 campaign, with its Am Cup entry securing class honours at the Total 24 Hours of Spa and Endurance Cup titles in the teams’ and drivers’ championships.

The team had already stated that its Am Cup programme would remain largely unchanged for 2019, with last year’s drivers’ champions, Leo Machitski and Adrian Amstutz, defending their class title. A third driver for the Huracan GT3 Evo will be announced in due course.

Barwell has also confirmed that its Silver Cup squad will return this term. Two new drivers will join Scottish youngster Sandy Mitchell, who remains on board for a second season. The car will also retain the backing of Black Bull Whisky.

The opening Endurance Cup event takes place at historic Monza on 13-14 April. The series will then move to Silverstone (11-12 May) and Circuit Paul Ricard (31 May-1 June) before taking in the marquee Total 24 Hours of Spa (25-28 July). The campaign concludes at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya over the weekend of 28-29 September.
