Mitchell, Collard join Barwell for 2020 campaign
Following the announcement that Adam Balon and Phil Keen will again drive a Lamborghini Huracán GT3 Evo in the British GT , team Barwell Motorsport confirmed another interesting pairing for the 2020 campaign. One of these is the 20-year-old official Lamborghini GT3 Junior Driver, Sandy Mitchell, who will be partnered by BTCC ace Rob Collard. Sandy and Rob’s Huracan will be supported by Black Bull Whisky.
Mitchell is returning to British GT having spent the last two seasons in the Blancpain GT Endurance series with the British squad. The Scotsman won the Spa 24 Hours Silver class last year and finished third in the Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America. He previously raced in British GT during the 2016-17 seasons, as part of the McLaren GT4 young driver development programme. This year, in addition to the British GT programme, Mitchell will be re-joining Barwell’s Black Bull Silver Cup car in the Spa 24 Hours.
Collard (51) was one of the British Touring Car Championship frontrunners over the last 20 years. During that time Rob has been a multiple race winner and finished in the top five of the championship standings, having been well established as part of the West Surrey Racing BMW squad for much of his time in the tin-top series.
