Chris Salkeld is looking forward to making the step up to the Intelligent Money British GT Championship.

“I’m over the moon to be making my debut in BGT with Century and BMW,” said Salkeld. “It was a no -brainer for us to team up again for 2021. After only two weekends with the team last year, I knew instantly it was the right decision and I cannot wait to get started on the upcoming season.

“Having joined Century, I was instantly blown away by their professionalism, attention to detail and knowledge of the cars they run, both in British GT and elsewhere. It’s an honour to be part of such a great team with an incredible legacy, along with working closely with one of the world’s biggest car manufacturers in BMW”

Century Motorsport is inviting driver enquiries to partner Salkeld.

The 2021 Intelligent Money British GT Championship gets underway at Brands Hatch on May 22 – 23.
