Balfe Motorsport back to GT Open
Balfe Motorsport has confirmed its return to the International GT Open, as Shaun Balfe will pair with Adam Carroll in the new Audi R8 LMS GT3.
Balfe is a familiar face in the GT Open paddock having taken the Pro-Am honours alongside Rob Bell in 2017, courtesy of three wins and a further five podium finishes. Prior to that, Shaun won the Spanish GT Championship in 2004 and more recently finished third in the 2019 British GT Championship.
Carroll secured the Formula Ford Winter Series title in 20oo and soon after Formula 3 titles in the UK and Europe. The A1GP series saw Adam compete for Team Ireland, wrapping up the 2008/9 title. Spells in both GP2 and IndyCar followed, before switching to GT racing. Since then, Adam has raced in a variety of championships, including GT Open with Balfe Motorsport in 2016 where he secured a podium on his debut.
Having tested the new Audi at Silverstone, the pairing expects to be competitive at the front of the field when the seven-round championship gets underway at Paul Ricard next month.
