Lanan Racing joins British GT

Leading single-seater and sports car squad Lanan Racing is set for further expansion in 2016, joining the GT4 grid of British GT. The Bedfordshire-based team will field a pair of new-for-2016 Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsports.

The 2016 season will see Lanan Racing in two of the UK's premier championships, British GT and Duo BRDC Formula 4 Championship, along with a return to Europe's top sports car championship, the European Le Mans Series.

It will be Lanan Racing's first season in British GT, which lists Brands Hatch Grand Prix, Silverstone GP and Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium, on its seven round calendar.

It will also be the debut of Porsche's latest production racing car: the Cayman GT4 Clubsport. The already acclaimed racer features the same flat-six engine as the road-going GT4, with an output of 380bhp, and the addition of a dual-clutch paddle-shift gearbox and other enhancements.

Two seats have already been filled for the 2016 season, those interested in the two remaining drives can download the media pack for more details or contact team manager Graham Johnson. Further announcements will be made in the coming weeks and months.

Lanan Racing team manager, Graham Johnson, said: "I'm delighted to announce our British GT GT4 campaign, in what should be a big year for Lanan Racing. We are in each of the best and most important champonships in Europe and can now offer real progresson for our drivers, from single seaters, through GTs to top line sports cars.

"We have had a hugely successful four years and I have no doubt that these two Cayman Clubsport GT4s will continue that success and help us fight for all three championships."
