News 2012: British GT campaign for Motorbase

March 7th

Caine set to return to GT championship

Motorbase Performance has unveiled plans to contest the Avon Tyres British GT Championship with a Porsche 911 GT3R for Michael Caine and Daniele Perfetti.

Team boss David Bartrum says that the programme will be a fresh challenge for his squad and the Kent-based team has already taken delivery of the Porsche.

Daniele Perfetti returns to Motorbase for 2nd season

"Porsche is a tried and trusted brand," said Bartrum. "It is familiar ground, but the car is stepping up a league. It is a new challenge, but we're going back to something we're used to doing."

Bartrum believes that his two drivers will adapt well to the latest GT Porsche. "Daniele has already done some GT racing in Europe and Michael has a strong heritage in GT racing. He competed at Le Mans for TVR and raced Porsches with Mike Jordan. Daniele has now learnt the British tracks during his Carrera Cup campaign last year."

The Motorbase entry will compete in the top class of British GT and Bartrum believes that they will be able to race against the latest Ferraris and Mercedes, as well as the other Porsches in the championship. "We understand the car and it is a product we know and love," he said.
