Devon Modell will line up on the grid in the British GT Championship for the first time since 2014 this coming Easter weekend as the season gets underway at Oulton Park.

The British racer is returning to the championship in the RJN Motorsport Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3 alongside Struan Moore and having taken part in the British GT Media day earlier this month, is looking forward to a strong result at the season-opener.

However, unusually for the British GT Championship, Devon and Struan are both Silver FIA-graded drivers which means the championship has dictated additional ballast for the event. Despite this extra weight in the car, Devon believes they will still be competitive.

“The test at the Media Day at Donington was good,” Devon began. “We both got to put in a good number of laps in the car. Struan to very familiar with the car, but it is all new for me so it will be a bit of a learning curve initially.

“As a driver pairing, we are only Silver-Silver graded drivers racing together, which means we have to carry additional ballast in the races. In saying that, the car felt good at Donington and I think we’ll be there or thereabouts. I always want to win, and as ever I’ll be giving my very best to see if I can make that happen.”

The race weekend gets underway with practice and qualifying on Saturday 31 March with two 60-minute races on Monday 2 April.
