Kevin Riley Signs for GT Cup Championship

Kevin Riley has signed up for another year’s racing with the GT Cup Championship for 2013 in his Mosler MT 900GT.

Riley will be looking to go one better than his second place class finish last year, he also finished fourth in the overall points standings.

Kevin Riley explains why he's returning to the GT Cup Championship:

"The format is ideal for me and other GT drivers. Nobody can drive sensibly for more than an hour so the race lengths are good. For longer races you need other drivers and to share the cost and share the risk but most people want to buy a car and race it.

“I raced in British GT where the costs were horrendous and GT Cup provides the same circuits, TV and racing against the same types of car for an hour or less. The best part of the weekend is the first corner of the race and you get that three times. Marc [Haynes] has responded well to the views of the drivers and we have a championship based on popularity, drivers opinions and drivers needs. We're also made to feel so welcome. The hospitality is so good along with the atmosphere it provides."

The 12 round, 19 race Championship takes place over seven weekends starting at Donington Park on 27th April.
