Team Parker Racing will field two Bentley Continental GT3s for the full British GT Championship season this year, and has confirmed that Ian Loggie and Callum Macleod will pilot the first car.

The team brought Bentley back into the series full-time last year, and claimed four pole positions and one race win over the course of the season.

Seb Morris and Rick Parfitt Jr. shared the No. 31 Bentley for the season, while Loggie and Macleod joined the field in a second entry for the Silverstone and Spa-Francorchamps rounds, as well as competing in the Blancpain GT Series.

“We’ve run different programs in the past but will only be competing in British GT this year,” Macleod said. “The tracks are closer and more accessible for testing, but the format is also better from an amateur’s perspective.

“Blancpain is geared more towards the Pros, whereas in British GT the Ams play an equal role in qualifying, spend more time in the car and also start most of the races. It’s a great fit.

“We’ve had a very productive winter and completed plenty of testing. It’s a top quality GT3 entry list but, given what the team achieved last season, we’re fairly optimistic of running at the front.” 

This news brings the total number of confirmed GT3 entries to 12, with Bentley the sixth manufacturer to commit to the top class of the British GT Championship this season, joining Aston Martin, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Mercedes-AMG and Ginetta.

Team Parker will announce its drivers for its second car in due course, although Morris told Sportscar365 at Autosport International in January to expect him and Parfitt to return to the team for a second season.
