2023: Enduro expands to British GT4 with Nunn, George and McLaren

Enduro Motorsport will become a multi-class Intelligent Money British GT Championship team in 2023 when it joins the GT4 ranks for the first time.

Its new McLaren Artura GT4, driven by Harrys George and Nunn, joins the race-winning squad’s 720S GT3 Evo which was confirmed this morning. Last year’s OnlyFans livery has also moved across to the GT4 entry.

George is embarking on his first season of GT racing after finishing as runner-up in 2022’s Caterham 310R Championship. He was also second in the Caterham Academy two years ago.

Nunn, meanwhile, joins the series following a frustrating Mini Challenge JCW campaign. However, winning the Trophy class title at his first attempt in 2020 underlines his potential.

Both he and George were supported throughout 2022 by Enduro’s owner Morgan Tillbrook who again partners Marcus Clutton in the team’s GT3 entry this year.

“GT4 is a big step but I’ve learned a lot in Caterhams over the past two years and feel ready for British GT,” said George. “Enduro have consistently shown themselves to be one of the championship’s top teams, partly because Morgan doesn’t do things by half, and I’m sure their new GT4 programme will be no different.”

Nunn added: “Last year didn’t measure up to my own high expectations but 2023 represents an amazing opportunity to start again with a highly professional team that’s a proven winner at the top tier of British motorsport. Other drivers have also successfully moved from Mini Challenge to GT4 in the past so I’m hopeful that Harry and I can be mixing it near the front from the off. We know it won’t be easy but the new Artura looks like a very capable race car. There’s nowhere else I’d rather be this season.”

Team manager Clutton is also excited about Enduro’s full-time GT4 expansion with the new Artura, which makes its debut this year.

“We’ve run a GT4 car in GT Cup before but never on this scale,” he said. “It’s a big investment but one that was always part of the plan. We ultimately want Enduro to become a ‘destination’ customer team in the future and running this GT4 entry alongside Morgan’s GT3 is just the first stage of that. 

“Choosing McLaren wasn’t just a practical choice, either. The Artura is a next-gen GT4 car and a big leap forward from the outgoing 570S. Sure, BoP will keep everyone in check, but I think this car will be racier than its predecessor whilst remaining accessible to amateurs.”

Enduro’s Artura has already completed its first test and will make its public debut during British GT’s media day at Donington on March 14. Oulton Park stages the championship’s opening round over Easter Bank Holiday weekend (April 8 & 10).
