Matt Griffin and Duncan Cameron will make their return to the British GT Championship in 2017, competing with AF Corse.

The pair will race the Ferrari 488 GT3 that they campaigned in the Blancpain GT Series this year, marking the first full-season entry of the new-generation Ferrari, which has to date just one British GT race start.

Neither driver is a stranger to British GT, and Griffin is second on the series’ all-time winners list, with a total of 14 victories and 97 race starts.

Griffin and Cameron previously raced together in the British series in MTECH Racing Ferraris from 2009 to 2013.

In 2016, their racing efforts also included a full-season European Le Mans Series program with a Ferrari F458 Italia GTE, again run by AF Corse.

“Duncan was keen on a return to British GT next year; we both have unfinished business and are targeting the title together,” said Griffin.

“British GT is where my sportscar career began. I’ve raced all over the world since then but it’s something I’m really excited about returning to. 

“The 488 has a lot more potential than the 458. It’s a ground-up racing car that has greater downforce, which will be a big plus around the UK circuits.

“Duncan and I know them well from our previous days in British GT but we’re planning to do a lot of pre-season testing because the car has had so little mileage in Britain since it was launched last year.”
