Witt stays with Barwell for 2020
Jordan Witt has signed a deal with Barwell Motorsport to remain with the squad for the 2020 GT World Challenge Europe Endurance Cup.
Nantwich 29-year-old driver, who impressed in his first season racing a Lamborghini Huracán GT3 Evo with Barwell last year in the then Blancpain Endurance Cup, is looking forward to putting everything he learned into practice as he sets his sights on a challenge for Silver Cup honours.
Making good progress in 2019 with the Surrey squad, Witt achieved his maiden Silver class victory in the GT3 championship during the blue riband twice-round-the-clock Total 24 Hours of Spa in Belgium.
This year eyeing a consistent challenge for podiums and big points to mount a sustained bid for the coveted title, Witt will form part of a very strong three driver line-up alongside fellow experienced British racer Alex MacDowall and Danish driver Frederik Schandorff.
“I’m feeling really confident for the new season”, said Witt, who is backed in 2020 by Vibe British Audio and Yelir World, “I started to get to know the Lamborghini last year, it took some time to get used to the rear of the car moving around – it’s unlike anything I’d raced before – but we made good progress and obviously won the class at the Spa 24 Hours which was amazing. Barwell is, honestly, a true top-level team. There was no question where I wanted to be this year after working with the guys so well last season. They’re only there to win and you never question any decisions they make, it’s a fantastic team. I’m aiming to be on the podium, but the main aim is to stay consistent with good points – with the big focus on the extra points at Paul Ricard and Spa.”
Witt’s first official outing of 2020 with Barwell will come during the pre-season test at Paul Ricard on 12th/13th March.
