Barwell Motorsport will enter a BMW Z4 GT3 into the upcoming Blancpain Endurance Series in the Pro-Am Class, under the team banner Team Russia by Barwell.

The team made its debut in the European Le Mans Series with drivers Leo Machitski, Timur Sardarov and Jonny Cocker but will switch its attention to BES. Tea principal of Barwell Motorsport Mark Lemmer feels he has the driver line-up which should provide them with a strong chance of clinching the Pro-Am title.

“I am delighted that we will be doubling our attack on the BES Pro-Am title, with the addition of the TRBB BMW Z4 GT3,” Lemmer said. “Leo & Jonny are already stars at this level, and Timur is really developing well as one of the most promising new Gentleman drivers of the GT3 scene”

"I'm absolutely delighted to be continuing the journey with Team Russia by Barwell in the 2015 season, a huge thanks to Leo, Timur and all at Barwell Motorsport for making this a possibility,” Cocker said. “I'm extremely excited at the prospect of this year's championship, the consistency in the Team, car and driver line up will really mean we can hit the ground running ready for what I feel will be a very successful year for all involved. I can't wait to get started!"

The team will begin its pre-season testing programme at Monza on 5th March before heading to the official BES test at Paul Ricard on March 11th-12th.
