Fletcher and Plowman confirm 2021 British GT plans

Wednesday, March 17 2021

Kelvin Fletcher and Martin Plowman will make their long-awaited Intelligent Money British GT3 Championship debuts with JRM Racing and Bentley this season.

Fletcher, a former star of Emmerdale and the 2019 Strictly Come Dancing winner, and Plowman, 2013 LMP2 class winner at Le Mans, reunite after winning the 2019 GT4 Pro-Am championship.

Plans to race with the same team in 2020 were mothballed amidst the global pandemic, but the popular driver pairing's hunt for overall race wins and the GT3 crown can now resume. 

Fletcher said: "We've kept ourselves busy, but nothing beats actually being out in the car and Brands Hatch can't come soon enough. We've still only completed a handful of laps in the Bentley - 2020's Media Day was my first and only meaningful running with the car, but we'll be putting that right before the season starts. And we'll need to because the championship's renewed emphasis on Pro-Am has resulted in some very strong GT3 driver combinations."

Plowman said: "We were the top GT4 Pro-Am crew in 2019 so there's no reason why we can't mix it with the established guys. Yes, they'll have a head-start in terms of experience: the likes of Jonny Adam and Phil Keen have seen it all before. But Kelvin's a fast learner and JRM know enough about the car from 2019 to get the best out of it and us."

Bentley joins Aston Martin, Lamborghini, McLaren, Mercedes-AMG and Porsche on the list of confirmed British GT3 manufacturers in 2021 ahead of the championship's scheduled start at Brands Hatch on 22/23 May.
