Team Abba Racing has announced that Britcar Sprint category race winner Richard Neary will race in the 2018 Britcar Endurance Championship in his Mercedes AMG GT3 this year.
Neary’s recent association with Martin Short’s Rollcentre Racing has proved highly fruitful, with overall victory in the 2016 Silverstone 24hrs being just one of the team’s successes. This season he will be looking to repeat the performance achieved in the Britcar Sprint race at the 2017 Silverstone Walter Hayes Trophy meeting, where he romped to victory in the Mercedes AMG GT3.
Once again running under the Team Abba Racing banner, the Managing Director of north-west specialist vehicle constructor Abba Commercials has yet to announce a co-driver for the two-hour endurance races. Neary will dovetail Britcar with a number of British GT and Creventic 24hr Touring Car appearances.
Neary is enthusiastic about the season ahead in Britcar: “I like longer races, and the Britcar race format appeals with a friendly atmosphere, good hospitality and TV coverage. We’ll be aiming to run at the front, hopefully.”
The Britcar season kicks off at Rockingham on April 14th.
