MTECH Racing back with a bang for 2010

Avon Tyres British GT Championship front-runners MTECH Racing confirm their 2010 return - and reveal that they are to ramp up their participation in the series into the bargain...
The Avon Tyres British GT Championship is shaping up for a vintage campaign in 2010, with MTECH Racing the latest squad to confirm its plans – and its race and championship-winning ambitions.

MTECH was the first team to notch up a UK race victory with the new Ferrari 430 Scuderia, at Silverstone in August courtesy of Matt Griffin and Duncan Cameron, and both men will be returning to the Staffordshire-based outfit and its Ferrari with the aim of further visits to the top step of the podium next year. MTECH also has high hopes of running a second GT3 car, as well as one or two in the new GT Cup category.

“We can confirm that Matt will be doing a complete season with us next year,” revealed team boss Mike Edmonds. “Obviously we are very pleased about that, and we think it puts us potentially in a championship-winning position, not least because we have now ironed out a lot of the early-season gremlins we had this year.

“We are very hopeful of running a second Scuderia too; we are in very deep discussions with two drivers about this already, and hopefully we can soon make an announcement confirming this. We are also talking to two drivers very keen to run their cars in the Cup class, so it's all happening.”

MTECH Racing has just returned from a successful foray to the Catalunya GT Open races at Barcelona, in which Griffin and Cameron scored a notable GTS category win.

MTECH's news comes hot on the heels of an announcement from Chad Racing that it will be upping its own entry in the championship in 2010 to a brace of Ferrari 430 Scuderias, and news from Team Modena that it plans to be back on the grid with its pair of Lamborghini Gallardos.
