Aberdeen-based Graham Davidson will be joining forces with Le Mans winner and three-time British GT champion Jonny Adam and TF Sport for an assault on the 2019 British GT Championship.
TF Sport announced that Davidson will be joining the Salfords-based team to work with compatriot Adam in one of two new-for-2019 Aston Martin Vantage GT3s that the team has acquired, the sister car already having one seat taken by multiple race-winner Mark Farmer.
Graham Davidson contested his first British GT Championship season with Jetstream Motorsport in the previous iteration of the Aston Martin GT3, the V12 Vantage with Aston Martin factory driver Maxime Martin as teammate. The duo scored a maiden championship win for the partnership at Spa-Francorchamps and a second place at Snetterton.
TF Sport Director Tom Ferrier is delighted at being able to field another strong GT3 pairing, especially after Adam and teammate Flick Haigh won the 2018 drivers title.
“We started informal talks with Graham at Brands Hatch and then met up over the Donington weekend and pretty much tied up the deal,” said Ferrier. “He has shown impressive pace in his first season in the British GT Championship and is already part of the Aston Martin racing family, so I’m sure that together we will enjoy success in 2019.”
Graham Davidson is looking to build on the success he enjoyed in 2018 with a new team, car and teammate.
“It’s fantastic to be joining TF Sport for next year and to have a teammate in Jonny Adam – it doesn’t get much better than that!” said Davidson. “It’s going to be mega and I hope I can do it justice.”
“I enjoyed my time with Jetstream. They took me from track days to victory in British GT, but I need to step up if I am to realise my true potential and they understand that.”
Jonny Adam, who coached Flick Haigh to huge success in 2018, will be looking for his fourth British GT GT3 title in the new season.
“We all like to set goals ahead of every season. Graham will be aiming for his first championship and I’ll be aiming for my fourth,” said Adam. “I’ll work closely with him in terms of coaching, simulator work and making sure that he’s completely focused on driving. I’m quietly confident that, as a team, we can put together a strong championship challenge.”
The 2019 British GT Championship opens at Oulton Park on April 20 – 22.
