Team ABBA Racing will return to British GT for the championship’s blue riband Silverstone 500 round this weekend (9th/10th June).
Team principal and driver Richard Neary will be joined again by AMG factory ace Adam Christodoulou aboard the #88 Mercedes GT3, which claimed its best-ever British GT result at the same venue last season.
Business commitments prevented Neary from returning full-time this year, but that hasn’t stopped the driver, car and team from claiming victories in the Britcar Endurance Series, the most recent of which came at Silverstone earlier this month.
Meanwhile, Christodoulou’s international programme with Mercedes-AMG has seen the 28-year-old finish second at the Nurburgring 24 Hours and Silverstone’s Blancpain GT Series round over as many recent weekends. He was also fastest of GT3’s Pro contingent during British GT qualifying there last season.
“I said at the end of 2017 that I wanted to race in the Silverstone 500, and here we are,” said Neary. “Last season highlighted the time and testing required to be competitive in British GT, and without that a full-season programme didn’t make sense for me. The Dunlop Endurance Championship however does allow me to remain race-ready.”
