Loggie targets British GT crown with Gounon

2020 and 2021 GT3 Pro-Am drivers champion Ian Loggie will partner with Jules Gounon for the 2022 Intelligent Money British GT Championship with his sights firmly set on the overall championship title.

Loggie will contest the series with RAM Racing in a two-car effort. The line-up for Dan Shufflebottom’s team’s second crew will be released in the near future.

Ian Loggie first entered the British GT Championship in 2015 and 2022 will be his sixth full season. For the past two seasons, Loggie has partnered with Dutchman Yelmer Buurman.

27-year-old Jules Gounon will be combining his British GT campaign with commitments in the GT World Challenge Europe, meaning that he will miss two British GT events. The team is preparing a list of candidates who could replace him.

Ian Loggie is looking forward to the new season.

“Now this is a championship season that I’m looking forward to,” said Ian Loggie, “Looking at the entry list so far, I’m sure the competition will be fiercer than in years gone past. This has been a championship where the quality of teams and drivers has continued to get stronger year on year.

“I’m really looking forward to partnering with Jules this year. In the GT3 world he’s one of the best around and is well known for his speed and commitment to winning. RAM Racing is a very experienced team that has such dedication to turning out a faultless piece of machinery. This year I believe we have the ‘magic sauce’ ingredients to become overall British GT champions.”

Jules Gounon will be returning to Pro-Am competition for the first time in five years when he joins the grid for the 2022 British GT Championship.

“I’m really looking forward to getting involved with British GT this year,” said the 2020 Bathurst 12 Hour winner. “I love Pro-Am racing. I haven’t done a proper Pro-Am series since 2017 and it’s a totally different atmosphere to the Pro-only stuff. I also really enjoy working with the amateur drivers.

“I like learning all about their stories away from the track and I really enjoy the coaching role, bringing them on. I know that with Ian I have one of the best amateurs on the grid to work with.”

The 2022 Intelligent Money British GT Championship gets underway at Oulton Park on April 16 – 18
