Optimum Motorsport add extra McLaren GT3 for Britsh GT 2020

Reigning British GT Silver Cup champion Ollie Wilkinson will return to the series to defend his crown in 2020 with Optimum Motorsport, a McLaren 720S GT3 and GT4 graduate Lewis Proctor

24 year old Wilkinson secured last year’s Silver Cup alongside Bradley Ellis, who became the first all Silver rated crew to win a British GT race outright which helped them remain in overall title contention all the way to the final round.

Partnering Wilkinson will be McLaren Academy driver Lewis Proctor, who is stepping up to the GT3 class after taking a win and two further podiums in British GT4 last season.

The 2020 British GT3 field now features a 19 car entry, with six Silver Cup entries. There is bad news in GT4, with Optimum confirming the withdrawal of both of its GT4 entries for the entire 2020 season, which gets underway at Oulton Park on the 1st & 2nd August.
