Onslow-Cole and White pair up for British GT

Tom Onslow-Cole and Paul White will contest the 2014 British GT Championship.
Tom Onslow-Cole will contest this year's Avon British GT Championship alongside experienced AM driver Paul White, it has been confirmed.

Onslow-Cole, who is best known for his exploits in the MSA British Touring Car Championship, announced last month that he was looking for new avenues, in particular in the GT arena.

The British GT deal, precise details of which will be announced soon, comes as part of a 'wider campaign' that will see him step onto the European and world stages.

“I really feel that the time is right for me to go and explore GT racing, it's got huge appeal right now and I don't think this move will come as a shock to many. Paul [White] and I have already competed in some endurance racing events together and we have proved to be a really strong pairing with podium finishes across Britcar at Brands Hatch, the 24 Hours of Dubai and the 12 Hours of Mugello,” said Onslow-Cole.

The pair, which hopes to contest the whole British GT Championship, is currently missing an entry to the opening round at Oulton Park.

“It's a shame not to have an entry to the opening round, as it would be good to contest the whole championship,” White added. “If anyone has an entry and doesn't think they'll be able to use it, they should definitely get in touch as we are currently finalising our plans.

“The full grid is testament to the fact that the British GT Championship is on the rise. It is very competitive and there are some teams that have been running in it a few years but I think Tom and I are a solid pairing with lots of potential - we both look forward to taking on the challenge.”
