British team Sebah Automotive is planning to enter a Porsche 996 GT3-R in the Silverstone round of the FIA GT Championship, which will be driven by father-and-son line-up of Hugh and Bart Heydon.

"Sebah Automotive is a small, one-car team," Hugh Heydon explained. "Previously, we raced Caterhams, and having won the Championship in 1997 and 1999, we decided to change categories."

"Last year, we competed in the European and American Le Mans Series. The idea of endurance racing appeals to me. I enjoy the strategy of the three-hour or even longer races, which involves the whole team in refuelling and driver changes. Sprint races are much more individual. We really wanted to do a British race this year, so we are looking forward to Silverstone."
