British GT is one of the world’s biggest domestic GT championships with a multi-class racing format with both GT3 and GT4 cars.
Tom Wood “‘I am absolutely delighted to have the opportunity to compete in the British GT Championship in the factory backed Aston Martin. I will be with Academy Motorsport who are running two cars in British GT4 this year.
My team mate will be 19-year-old Danish driver Jan Jonck who has a lot of experience in single seater and GT racing. He also claimed a win last year at Brands Hatch in British GT, so to have him as my teammate makes for a very exciting partnership.”
Tom Wood Racing would like to give thanks to partners Scannervision, Donington Park, SCD, Castle Printwear, Sabrina Productions and everyone else who has contributed to make this possible.
