Tregurtha makes ADAC GT debut
Will Tregurtha will make his debut in the ADAC GT Masters next weekend, after agreeing a deal with T3 Motorsport to race their Audi R8 GT3 at the Red Bull Ring. The 19-years-old from Milton Keynes won the 2016 Ginetta Junior Championship and the 2017 British GT4 Championship, finishing second in the 2018 GT4 European Series.
In the recent Nürburgring 24 Hours Qualification Race, Tregurtha qualified the car second in class and pulled back a large gap in his final stint to earn second place in the six-hour race. Having nailed down his permits to compete in the Nürburgring 24 Hour race later in June, Tregurtha now has a chance to impress in GT3 machinery in the ADAC GT Masters. Sponsored by Enlighten Operational Excellence, he said: “I need to thank T3 Motorsport for this opportunity and Tim Sugden for pulling the deal together. It’s an extraordinary chance to show what I’m capable of in a GT3 car, on a great track in an incredibly competitive field. T3 Motorsport have been very welcoming, they want to give young drivers a chance – and I will do everything I can to deliver for them and their sponsors.”
“We are delighted to have found in William an ambitious and likeable junior driver who shares the ambitions and aspirations of T3 Motorsport,” said Jens Feucht, team principal.
Tregurtha will be partnered by Germany’s Maximilian Paul who has already competed in the first two rounds of the ADAC GT Masters with T3 Motorsport, at Oschersleben and Most.
