Bentley Team Parker Racing has signed Tom Onslow-Cole to race one of its Bentley Continental GT3s in the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup.

Onslow-Cole joins team regulars Callum Macleod and Ian Loggie, the latter claiming the 2015 Am Cup drivers’ title with Parker’s Audi R8 LMS ultra.

The trio is slated to compete in the always crowded and competitive Pro-Am Cup.

“Blancpain Endurance Series is the largest GT series in the world and has fast become a main focus of manufacturers, drivers and teams,” Onslow-Cole said.

“The level of competition is ‘off the scale’ and, as a GT3 specialist, it’s the main stage to play.”

The 28-year-old Brit tested the 4.0-litre Continental GT3 at Portimao earlier this month and both parties were immediately impressed with each other.

“We were looking for a quick silver to join Ian and Callum so invited Tom to test with us,” said team boss Stuart Parker.

“Although he’d never driven the Continental GT3, he was quick out of the box and set impressive laps times. Pair that with his fantastic attitude and we knew he had found our driver.”
