2019 British GT Championship GT4 Pro-Am champions Kelvin Fletcher and Martin Plowman have announced that they will be graduating to the GT3 class for 2020.
Fletcher and Plowman will be joining JRM Racing to drive the team’s Bentley Continental GT3 in the 2020 Intelligent Money British GT Championship.
2020 will be the second year for the Daventry-based squad in the premier UK domestic GT championship. The team who won on their first outing at Oulton Park in 2019.
Kelvin Fletcher, who was crowned ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ champion in 2019, is looking forward to stepping up into the senior category for the new season.
“Announcing my partnership with Martin won’t be a surprise to anyone – he’s one of the quickest drivers out there, a class act behind the wheel and a great friend,” said Kelvin Fletcher. “After three years of racing with him and developing that relationship, I wouldn’t want to be racing with anyone else.
“JRM’s stature within motorsport as World Championship winners in GT racing is something we’re really going to benefit from. Their engineering expertise and how they use data to approach their car, season and races is unparalleled so I’m looking forward to using that to develop my driving as we go into (British GT’s) senior class.”
Martin Plowman is under no illusions about the task ahead of the 2019 GT4 Pro-Am champions.
“We know it’s going to be a challenge – British GT is a competitive championship and there will be a full grid so plenty of traffic to navigate,” said Plowman. “We’re ready to take it on thanks to Imagine Cruising who have supported our step up to the next level.
“We’re humbled by the belief they have in us. They’ve become part of the family and we’re grateful to be sharing the season with them.”
The 2020 Intelligent Money British GT Championship gets underway at Oulton Park on the Easter weekend of April 11 – 13 with the season-opening Media Day At Snetterton on March 3.
