With the 2018 British GT Championship having concluded less than seven weeks ago, teams are already laying the foundations for 2019 with driver announcements and testing.
University of Bolton-backed ProTechnika Motorsport was out testing at Snetterton this week, as preparations continue for the team’s debut at the HANKOOK 24H DUBAI on January 10 – 12. The team was launched at the Spa-Francorchamps round of the 2018 British GT Championship with team owner Anna Walewska sharing the driving duties with Tom Canning. The pair enjoyed great success at its debut race weekend, finishing second in the GT4 Pro-Am class and travelled to the final round of the season at Donington Park with a recently acquired, brand-new Mercedes-AMG GT4
Looking ahead to 2019, Anna Walewska has ambitious plans for ProTechnika Motorsport, now based at the National Centre For Motorsport Engineering at the University of Bolton.
Speaking to EnduranceandGT editor Andy Lloyd, Anna Walewska explained that she was pleased at how the Snetterton test had gone.
“We were testing at Snetterton, doing back-to-back semi-exclusive days testing new talent,” said Walewska, who finished third in the 2016 British GT GT4 Pro-Am Standings and who won the SP3 class at the 2016 24H DUBAI. “I am very pleased at how both drivers performed, especially in the mixed weather conditions on the second day. It’s good preparation for next season and our winter programme.”
