Morris makes ADAC GT debut
British racing driver Seb Morris will make a maiden appearance in the ADAC GT Masters at the Sachsenring this weekend, 3rd/4th October, after receiving a call-up from Bentley to deputise for fellow works driver Jordan Pepper.
Chester 24-year-old Morris, who is this year racing in the GT World Challenge Europe Endurance Cup and selected Intercontinental GT Challenge rounds for the Crewe-based manufacturer, will make his ADAC GT Masters track debut at the 3.6-kilometre circuit with Bentley customer team T3-HRT-Motorsport.
Partnering Austrian youngster Constantin Scholl in the No.72 Bentley Continental GT3, Welshman Morris stands in for Pepper who has clashing commitments for Bentley in the latest round of the Intercontinental GT Challenge, the Indianapolis 8 Hour.
“I’m really excited to fill in for Jordan this weekend at the Sachsenring, and I wish him the very best in Indy”, said the former British GT Champion, “Being thrust into a different team and, in this case, a championship I haven’t raced in before is a really enjoyable part of my job as a Bentley Pro. I really am looking forward to this weekend’s action immensely. We’re obviously hoping for some good results from the two races and it’s going to be good teaming up with Constantin, and of course working with the T3 guys for the first time. Sachsenring is a new track for me, so I’m looking forward to being out there later today in practice and getting my first experience of the circuit and the T3-HRT car.”
