Almost six months since his last race in a Bentley Continental GT3, Seb Morris will finally get back to competitive action this weekend at Imola, Italy when the opening round of the GT World Challenge Europe Endurance Cup takes place.
Welshman Morris, who will be the ‘Pro’ driver in the No.107 CMR entered Bentley Continental GT3 alongside French team-mate Pierre Alexandre Jean and Romania’s Razvan Petru Umbrarescu, cannot wait to be back in real-world race action after the enforced global COVID-19 lockdown.
Having spent the last four months on the sidelines due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, just like the rest of the motorsport world, the 24-year-old British Racing Drivers’ Club Superstar from Marford, Wrexham is relishing being back at work as a Bentley professional and competing with CMR for the first time.
“I’m really looking forward to it”, said Morris, “There are no expectations, there’s no pressure on us, we’re just going to turn up at Imola and see how we get on. The team has done a good amount of testing, but I’ve not been able to be there due to the COVID-19 restrictions so I will have some work to do. The customer programme for Bentley is the major priority for the brand, it’s very important.”
