08/04/2014 M-Sport Racing commit to British GT

M-Sport Racing will contest the Avon Tyres British GT series with a Bentley Continental GT3 in 2014 with Steven Kane and Humaid Al Masaood on driving duties.


After a limited campaign in 2013 for four rounds where a pole position and two podium finishes were the result, the squad will showcase the new Continental GT3 with experienced racer Kane and Al Masaood.


“I’m really proud to have been selected by M-Sport to represent them in the British GT this year,” said Kane. “The team has such a great history in motorsport and I’ve been following their progress since I was a young boy so I feel really honoured to be here. 


“I’ve worked closely with the team on the development of the Continental GT3 over the past few months, and I can honestly say that it's one of the best GT cars I have ever driven!


“British GT is going to be very competitive this year with so many great teams and drivers, but Humaid and I are really looking forward to getting started. It will be very tough, but with such a great team and car behind us I'm confident that we will be close to the front.”


M-Sport Racing Team Manager, Matthew Wilson, can’t wait to get the season started.       


“Coming back to the championship where it all started – with a finished product just one year on – brings the team a real sense of accomplishment. So much time and effort has gone into this project and it is great to see that hard work paying dividends.


“Hopefully we can continue our strong showing from last year’s series and showcase the Continental GT3 as a real contender in its class. As the season progresses, it would be great to be in a position to challenge for victories, but we also need to remember that this will be our first full season on the circuit.


“Anything can happen, but the whole team is really looking forward to the challenges ahead.”
