OC TO RACE IN 'BACK GARDEN'

Tom Onslow-Cole will enjoy the comfort of his own bed, this race weekend, as the Blancpain Endurance Cup heads to Silverstone for the only British race in his 2016 calendar.
 
Returning from 12H Zandvoort, where he took pole position in the RAM Racing Mercedes AMG GT3, the Milltek Sport-supported driver is looking forward to getting back into the Team Parker Racing Bentley Continental GT3 and driving on the track that is in his 'back garden'.
 
“Despite living a stone’s throw from Silverstone Circuit, I’ve only actually raced on the GP circuit twice. I know the five turns of the National Circuit like the back of my hand, how hard can the other 13 be?! Joking aside, everyone knows the GP Circuit – it’s one of those stand-out iconic tracks."

OC will race one of four Bentley Continental GT3s on the grid of more than 50 GT3 cars from premium manufacturers including Aston Martin, Mercedes, Porsche and Lamborghini. 
 
“I can’t wait to get on-track. The Bentley Continental GT3 has a strong history on the Silverstone GP circuit. Whether it’s the good aero package or the push of the home crowd, it always does well here. In fact it won the Blancpain Endurance Series race here in 2014, so we all have high expectations upon us.”
 
The three-hour race starts at 1500hrs on Sunday 15 May and will be live streamed at www.blancpain-gt-series.com.
