Barwell Motorsport will compete in the new Silver Cup of the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup this season, the team revealed on Tuesday.

The team will field a Lamborghini Huracan GT3 driven by Martin Kodric, Michele Beretta and Sandy Mitchell for the five endurance races across Europe.

Kodric formed part of Barwell’s Pro-Am entry which took three class wins last season while Lamborghini Squadra Corse junior driver Beretta won the Blancpain GT Series Sprint Cup Silver title in 2016.

Seventeen-year-old Mitchell raced with Black Bull Garage 59 in the British GT Championship last year and the Black Bull sponsorship returns to Barwell with this program.

Barwell has a history with the Scotch whisky brand which backed its Ecurie Ecosse BMW Z4 GT3 entries in 2014-15.

“I’m not only really excited about entering the new Blancpain Endurance Silver Cup class, but also about the fantastic and talented young driver lineup that we have managed to assemble in our Huracan GT3,” said team principal Mark Lemmer.

“We are of course also thrilled to welcome back Black Bull as our overall team partner for 2018.”
