“I’m super excited to be joining Team Rocket RJN for select rounds in British GT this season,” said Mia Flewitt. “I will be sharing their McLaren 720S GT3 with my driver coach and co-driver Euan Hankey. Stepping up from GT4 was always the plan for this season but it’s been a challenging year so far to make it happen. I’m forever grateful to all who have helped and supported us to get here. Bring on Silverstone!”

Team Rocket RJN Team Principal Bob Neville is delighted to be returning to the GT3 category after a 2020 season in which James Baldwin and Michael O’Brien enjoyed significant success.

“We are very pleased to welcome Mia and Euan to the team and very much looking forward to getting our GT3 car back on track,” said Neville. “We already have a busy GT4 programme with three cars this season but to add the McLaren 720S to the programme is fantastic. Mia and Euan are a great pairing and obviously very familiar with working together during their time in GT4.”

Flewitt and Hankey will be competing at the Silverstone 500 on June 26 – 27, Spa-Francorchamps on July 24-25 and the season finale at Donington on October 16 – 17.
