Welsh racing driver and British GT Champion Seb Morris will take on the very best GT endurance racing drivers in the world this season after being confirmed as part of Team Parker Racing’s three driver Pro-Am line-up in the ultra-competitive Blancpain Endurance Cup.
Determined to make the step-up into European level GT competition after sealing the coveted British GT crown last season with the Leicestershire team, Morris, who comes from outside Wrexham, will spearhead the squad’s Pro-Am assault on the prestigious Blancpain series.
Piloting a Bentley Continental GT3 as he did in the British category in 2017, Morris will be joined by Ade Barwick and Derek Pierce as the trio look to make a big impact on the globe’s biggest and best GT endurance racing championship.
Having last competed full-time in Europe in 2015 in the Formula One-supporting GP3 Series, 22-year-old Morris – who has been starring for the past couple of weeks on reality television series Celebs Go Dating on the E4 channel in the UK – is relishing the challenge of a full season back on the continent
“I am delighted to sign with Team Parker Bentley for my first proper assault on the biggest sportscar racing championship in the world at the moment, Blancpain”, said an elated Morris, “It was the right time for me to leave British GT, off the back of winning the title, now I feel ready and experienced enough to mount a title assault with Ade and Derek.”
