Silverstone-Based RAM Racing has announced that it will return to the British GT Championship in 2019 with a Mercedes-AMG GT3 to be driven by Ian Loggie and Callum Macleod.
The announcement means that Loggie and Macleod will switch from Team Parker Racing and the #7 Bentley Continental GT3 in which the duo finished ninth in the GT3 Drivers Standings in 2018.
Ian Loggie is looking forward to the challenges presented by a change of team and car.
“It’s been an absolute pleasure to race with Team Parker Racing in the Bentley for the last three years, but I was keen to make sure my skill sets develop,” said Ian Loggie. “After testing the Mercedes-AMG GT3, I think there’s a lotI can learn from it, I also think it’s a car that will do well in British GT. RAM Raçing are an incredibly impressive team – extremely professional and everything is well-prepared. I’m looking forward to a new chapter in my racing and can’t wait to get to Oulton Park in April.”
Callum Macleod is also excited about the changes.
“Ian is here to learn as a driver so it’s good to try different machinery,” said Callum Macleod. “We tested the RAM Racing Mercedes-AMG GT3 and were impressed with the car and the team, so we decided to see what we can do together in 2019. Over the last two years in British GT I’d say we haven’t had the results we perhaps we deserved so we’re looking forward to giving it another go!”
The 2019 British GT season opens at Oulton Park on April 20-22.
