Fisken And Westbrook For Trackspeed
Unfinished Business

Having last competed in the British GT Championship in 2011, when he took a win at Brands Hatch with Tim Bridgeman in a Trackspeed Porsche, Scottish gentleman racer Gregor Fisken - who regards the BGT as "unfinished business" - is back for another full season with the same team, and his chosen teammate is Richard Westbrook.

“I’m really looking forward to the year ahead," said Fisken. "The increasing strength of British GT, which is underlined by the calibre of professional and amateur drivers, ensured the opportunity to return with Trackspeed was an irresistible one. I’m certainly not underestimating the task at hand but we should have a very competitive package, especially as Richard is one of the fastest GT drivers in the world. We’ve not raced together before but enjoyed a strong working relationship in 2011, so I’m already confident of forming a great partnership. Porsche have made a lot of improvements to the 997 GT3 R so I’m hopeful that will help us challenge for victories straight away.”

Westbrook is an enthusiastic proponent of the championship, but his other racing commitments have limited him to just a handful of outings so far (although it should be pointed out that when he does race, he normally goes home with a trophy or two on the back seat). Alas, a full-season is not possible in 2013 either, owing to clashes with the Grand-Am calendar, but he will race at four meetings.

“I’m delighted to be teaming up with Gregor after working on opposite sides of the garage in 2011," he said. "Being a Pro-Am championship it’s vitally important to have the best team-mate possible and in Gregor I’m confident that I’ve got just that. It’s also very exciting to be back with Trackspeed in British GT again. The championship’s gone from strength-to-strength and the competition certainly appears much greater than last season. Fortunately we’ll have a significant upgrade so it should be a very interesting year and I’m feeling extremely confident.”

Westbrook's replacement at Snetterton, Brands Hatch and Zandvoort will be announced at a later date. The team will undergo an extensive test programme prior to Oulton Park at Easter.

“Myself and the team are very happy to have Gregor and Richard back at Trackspeed for this year’s British GT Championship," said Team Manager Keith Cheetham. "Their combined ability and our latest specification Porsche 997 GT3 R should make them a force to be reckoned with. Indeed, our testing programme begins in a matter of weeks so hopefully they can hit the ground running at the Oulton Park opener and score some strong points. It’s a very competitive field this year but I am confident they can be a major force in the Drivers’ championship and of course hopefully help Trackspeed secure a fourth consecutive Teams’ title. There’s no doubt it will be a long, hard year but, as a team, we feel it has the makings of something special.”
