The Avon Tyres British GT Championship touches down at Silverstone this weekend (May 30/31) for its annual blue riband three-hour endurance race and Richard Lyons will compete at the wheel of the FF Corse Ferrari.
“It’s a great opportunity to get back behind the wheel of a Ferrari 458 especially within the perfect setting of the world famous Silverstone GP circuit. I would like to thank Gary Eastwood and FF Corse for this invitation to compete. I’ve worked with FF Corse over the last few years on other projects so we already have an established great working relationship. I met Gary last season and was always impressed with his no nonsense approach and speed, he is a great character to have on the British GT grid.
It’s actually hard to believe that this is my debut race at Silverstone GP but I’ve had a few laps last year so it’s not all new and I will be looking to build on that”
