Redhill-based TF Sport, winners of the 2016 British GT Teams and Drivers championships and the inaugural Michelin GT3 Le Mans Cup, has announced that Derek Johnston and Jonny Adam will remain with the team to defend the British GT titles in 2017.
Mark Farmer and Jon Barnes will also remain with TF Sport as it looks to consistency to repeat the outstanding form the team, and all its drivers, displayed throughout 2016.
“It has been something of a watershed year for TF Sport, as we’ve won races and championship titles on both British and European stages and I believe consistency will be the key to carrying the team’s form over into 2017,” said TF Sport Director Tom Ferrier. “This season’s successes prove we have a winning structure and everything we need to defend our British GT Championship crowns, with two quick driver pairings and the support of Aston Martin Racing. We just need to optimise our package in winter testing to ensure we hit the ground running again at Oulton Park in April.”
Jonny Adam is delighted to be working with TF Sport again next year.
“It has been a mega year for TF Sport and I’m already looking forward to spending 2017 with the team and Derek (Johnston), “ said Adam. “Consistency is always positive and this should help Derek up his game again, but everybody is trying to improve and winter testing will be important for looking at the minor details to find those last few tenths of a second.”
“We learnt an awful lot as a team and as individual drivers in 2016,” said Derek Johnston. “Tom Ferrier’s understanding improved massively and everything came together nicely to ensure we could win the title. I want to be up there again next year and I don’t see any reason why we can’t be.”
The first round of the 2017 British GT Championship will be held at Oulton Park on April 15 – 17
