Aston Millar and Josh Rowledge will graduate from Ginetta racing to the 2023 Intelligent Money British GT Championship with new entrant DTO Motorsport and the new for 2023 McLaren Artura GT4. The team move up from their run to third place in the Gintta GT4 Supercup with Rowledge at the wheel last year.
DTO Motorsport began operating as an experience company before stepping into competitive racing last year. The combination of Head of Motorsport Karun Chandhok and Head of Engineering Eddy Hall brings knowledge of racing from British GT to Formula 1 to the effort.
“We are extremely excited to be entering into the Intelligent Money British GT Championship and what better way to do it than with the new McLaren Artura GT4,” Hall told BritishGT.com. “Improving on our debut season in 2022, this is a fantastic opportunity to showcase what DTO are capable of. We’re pleased to be continuing our racing journey with Aston Millar and with Josh Rowledge joining the DTO team, we’ll be highly competitive.”
A range of teams are said to be considering a campaign with the McLaren Artura GT4, which will make it’s competitive debut at Oulton Park at Easter. Optimum Motorsport are expected to announce a return along with other teams who have yet to announce their intentions.
What is already known is that Team BRIT, who fought hard for last year’s Pro-Am title in GT4, will continue to run the McLaren 570S GT4 which made it’s own competitive debut 7 years ago at the same event. The Artura will make it’s British GT testing debut at media day in March.
