Kirkcaldy racer Jonny Adam has signed up for a fifth consecutive year in the British GT Championship with Beechdean Racing.

Jonny will once again team up with Beechdean team boss Andrew Howard behind the wheel of the Aston Martin Vantage GT3 for the 2015 championship.

The pairing will look to improve on their top five finish in 2014, which followed a championship win in 2013.

Jonny said: “It’s great to be driving with Andrew again and racing in British GT for 2015.

“There’s good continuity within the team - we know each other well - and we made a massive step forward last year in terms of pace, which we’ll look to improve on with more research and development.

“You need a bit of luck along the way but I’d be very surprised if we’re not in the hunt for the championship come the final round.”

The seven-race weekend championship kicks off on the Easter bank holiday weekend, April 6 at Oulton Park, and this year looks to be one of the most competitive fields of both GT3 and GT4 cars.

“It will be a tough championship this year but we have a strong Pro-Am line up and a great team of engineers at Beechdean and Aston Martin Racing,” Jonny added.

“We look to improve our Aston Martin Vantage GT3 throughout our testing program and understand the new Avon tyre for 2015.

“We are aiming for success and with the experience we now have of both the car and championship, 2015 will hopefully be a good one.”
