Gavin inks Mad Croc deal

Oliver Gavin to race with Mad Croc Racing in the FIA GT1 World Championship
Oliver Gavin has inked a deal to join the Mad Croc Racing team for the 2010 FIA GT1 World Championship.

Gavin will partner Finn Pertti Kuismanen at the wheel of a Corvette Z06 for the team, formed through a merger of the SRT and DKR Engineering teams during the winter.

Due to commitments already in place with the factory Corvette Racing team in the American Le Mans Series, Gavin will miss the events at Abu Dhabi, Brno and the Nurburgring, where he will be replaced by former F1 racer Mika Salo.

“I'm really pleased to be back with Patrick [Selleslagh] and his team again for the seven events, after having had such a good connection with him last year,” Gavin – who drove for SRT in the Spa 24 Hours last season, said. “It's also wonderful to be back competing in Europe and I'm particularly pleased the first race of the year will be at my home track, Silverstone, as I haven't raced there since 2007.

“I'm looking forward and am intrigued to see how the GT1 World Championship will evolve and it'll be good to be racing against the likes of top line drivers such as Darren [Turner] and Tomas [Enge] – reprising our ALMS battles from a few years ago. I've never been to South Africa or Argentina before so it'll not only be challenging to learn some new tracks again, but it'll also be a really good way to finish off my racing year.”
