2016 British GT Championships - Media Day
Hello sports fans,

The 2016 British GT Championship includes two classes GT3 and GT4 with the following Championships up for grabs:
The media day opened with a World Exclusive - the unveiling of the new McLaren GT 570S GT4 raced by Team Ecurie Ecosse. A beautiful car if there was ever one to behold (see image below). The day followed with sessions from GT3 and F4. The Press Conference attracted a lot of attention and was opened by the Chairman of SRO, Stephane Ratel followed by the sponsors, team managers and drivers. One surprise to the day was the guest driver for Beechdean - Mr Paul Hollywood (better known for his culinary endeavours, he showed his metal on the track).
