Barwell Motorsport is delighted to confirm that Jon Minshaw and Phil Keen will be continuing with its British GT Championship squad for a third year running in 2017. The duo will again be campaigning a Demon Tweeks-backed Lamborghini Huracan GT3 in the series, having finished as runners-up in 2016. The car will be entered under the Demon Tweeks racing with Barwell Motorsport banner.
Minshaw and Keen were the winningest British GT pairing this season, having taken a superb victory in the Silverstone 3-Hours and then an historic double win in Snetterton’s two 1-Hour encounters. They backed this up with other podium finishes at both Rockingham and Oulton Park.
They will be looking to mount another very strong challenge for the title in 2017, and will start their preparations with a pre-season test in Barcelona next March before moving on to the UK circuits.
Barwell is set to announce the details of its second Lamborghini Huracan GT3 British GT entry in the coming weeks.
Jon Minshaw: “I’m very happy to have re-signed with Barwell, and I’m sure that in our second year with the Huracan we will be even stronger. It’s great to have Keeny back with me, he did a brilliant job this season and keeps getting better and better. Hopefully we’ll be able to go one step further in 2017 and win the title!”
Mark Lemmer, Barwell Motorsport Team Principal: “It’s great to welcome Jon & Phil back, this will be their third season with Barwell, and their fantastic results in 2016 show how valuable continuity within the team is. We have all of the ingredients in place once again to challenge for the title.”
