Two classes currently compete in the British GT Championship: GT3 and GT4. A consolidation of GT regulations and significant manufacturer support saw British GT first introduce the GT3 class in 2005. And from 2006 the category mirrored FIA Group GT3 and used near-identical regulations to the FIA GT3 European Championship.
The SRO GT4 class was adopted in 2008 intended as a development class towards GT3. Regulations governing GT4 ensure the cars more closely resemble their road-going counterparts than GT3 machines, to control cost.

Q. What’s your ultimate goal in racing?
A. I don’t really have a target, I came into the sport incredibly late in life, at the age of 27. I’m now 30 and racing in the highest level of GT racing the country has to offer. I genuinely don’t know how much further I could go, so to please Gustav I’ll say, replace Lewis Hamilton at Mercedes in 2023!
Q. What was the first car you owned?
A. First road legal car, Ford Fiesta Zetec S, but first car I owned was a field car, Rover Metro Westminster Edition. It came with the sweet optional extra of no suspension on the right-hand side. Safe to say it may have gone through a few fences when honing my craft!
Q. Do you have a favourite circuit?
A. Zandvoort! Absolutely love the place, was lucky to be crowed “King of Zandvoort” in 2019 when racing in Ginetta G40 Cup there.
