JRM Group to withdraw their Bentley Racing Team entry for the British GT Championship in 2020
The decision has been made in collaboration with the drivers, sponsors and partners of the racing team and is in response to the current COVID-19 situation in the UK and across the globe and how the pandemic is taking its toll on people’s lives.
Companies have closed, people have been furloughed and in many cases made redundant. Everyone’s livelihood has been affected and some families have lost loved ones.
While the whole team is extremely disappointed with the decision to withdraw our entry, it has been taken primarily out of respect. Secondly, it has been taken because racing in 2020 will not be the experience that fans, teams, sponsors and organisers always look forward to.
That said, we are not ruling out entering the Silverstone 500 for the final round of the championship. This decision will be guided by the COVID-19 position we all find ourselves in much closer to the time.
In the meantime, the drivers Martin Plowman and Kelvin Fletcher, are working closely with the team engineers and the wider group to come back stronger and faster in 2021 as we look to secure another championship win.
