Teenager Dan Brown has inked a deal to return to the Avon Tyres British GT Championship for the 2010 season.

Brown, who won races with the Rollcentre Racing team in 2009, will join forces with Chris Hyman in a new Ferrari 430 Scuderia run by Chad Racing with backing from US fuel additive brand STP.

"We are confident that the Daniel Brown/Chris Hyman line-up in our new 430 Scuderia will mount a serious challenge at the front of the GT3 field this year, Chad team manager Piers Masarati said. "We started an intensive test programme last November and broke the lap record at two of the championship's circuits. For sure we will be stronger than last year and, with our two cars, we feel confident we can mix it with the other strong pairings.

"I especially look forward to helping develop Daniel's driving. In testing he has been everything I expected, quick and consistent, and paired with Chris, who was so quick in FPA and British GT last year, they will be a force in the championship."

The team is expected to announce the drivers for its second car in the coming weeks.
