Seb Morris makes winning return to British GT Championship

Seb Morris made a memorable return to the British GT Championship over the Easter weekend (March 30-April 1) as he took pole position and two victories at Oulton Park.

Having won the overall championship title in 2017 with Team Parker Racing, the Cheshire-based racer re-joined the outfit this season as he joins forces with Charles Dawson in a Mercedes-AMG GT4.

The 28-year-old was on the pace from the get-go, topping the GT4 Pro-Am class times in testing and practice, and carried that over into qualifying as he went fastest of anyone in GT4, while teammate Charles finished his session second, giving them a chance of success in both one-hour contests.

After a day off on Sunday, race day dawned grey and wet, with difficult conditions on track meaning the first race started behind the Safety Car, with Charles taking the first stint. He drove well, avoiding drama, and handed over to Seb during a lengthy Full Course Yellow period.

When racing finally resumed, he kept in touch with the Pro-Am leading car, which had to serve a penalty for a short pit stop, handing him the lead which he would hold to the flag, finishing second overall in GT4 in the process.

Lining up for the second race on pole, Seb started on a wet track but one which dried quickly under sunny skies, managing his tyres and opting not to waste time fighting with a Silver class rival, knowing he would gain time back in the pit stop. Thanks to a good stop by the team, Charles emerged in the lead of GT4 and, with another FCY, held station to the flag for a memorable victory.

Seb returns to British GT Championship action at the end of April, for the marquee Silverstone 500, a three-hour contest. He and Charles will also make an appearance in the GT Cup at Donington Park, a week beforehand, over April 20/21.

“It was a nice, smooth, weekend. Charles did everything he needed to as he put in a great lap in qualifying and both of his race stints were clean which let me do my thing. Being P1 meant I could control the gap and the car behind wasn’t fighting me as it was in the Silver Cup, so I let it go knowing they had a longer pit stop. It’s all positive but we know it will be hard at Silverstone as we’ll have time on our stops for the win, but I would rather do what we did this weekend and deal with that in the three-hour race, where we have time to make it back.”
