Simon Green Motorsport has announced that the Silver-Am duo of Lucky Khera and Ross Wylie will contest the 2021 Intelligent Money British Gt Championship in its Lamborghini Huracan GT3.
Lucky Khera has been a regular competitor in multiple championships since 2016 and in 2020 raced in the Ferrari Challenge Europe, the British GT Championship and the Porsche Carrera Cup Great Britain. Khera won the Trofeo Pirelli title in 2020 Ferrari Challenge UK championship, winning his class in every round.
Scot Ross Wylie began his racing career in karts before graduating to cars in 2012. The 30-year-old pilot was the 2014 British GT Championship GT4 champion, driving the #407 Beechdean AMR Aston Martin with teammate Jake Giddings. Alongside Khera, Wylie raced the Simon Green Motorsport Ferrari F488 Challenge entry in the Silverstone round of the 2020 British GT Championship, scoring a fourth place finish in class.
Khera and Wylie have entered the opening rounds of the GT Cup Championship in preparation for the start of the British GT season at Brands Hatch in May.
Lucky Khera is looking forward to the endurance element of the British GT Championship.
“Switching full-time to a series with endurance at its heart feels like a natural next step in my motorsport career, and there’s nowhere better for that in the UK than British GT,” said Khera. “I really enjoyed my time in Ferrari Challenge and was successful enough to suggest I’ll be on the pace with the other Ams this year. The Lamborghini also seems like the right choice given how many wins it’s notched up with Pro-Am crews since 2016.
“We’re getting as much racing and testing mileage under our belts as we can before Brands Hatch.”
Teammate Ross Wylie will be making his first GT3 since 2016 when the season opens in Kent.
“Last year’s one-off at Silverstone gave Lucky a taste of what he could expect in British GT, and from that moment on it was evident he wanted to be involved one way or another this season!” he said.
“Ultimately, of course we’d like to challenge for overall results, but the new Silver-Am class is our primary focus in year one. It gives us something to aim at whilst finding our feet in a very competitive series.”
Spectators will be welcome at the opening round of the Intelligent Money British GT Championship which takes place at Brands Hatch on May 22 – 23.
