Barwell Cadena DBRS9
Former British GT Championship-winning outfit, Barwell Motorsport, has teamed up with experienced GT racer, Paul Whight, to run his Aston Martin DBRS9 GT3 and AMR1 Group C cars in a programme of events around Europe this season. In 2006 Barwell and Whight both claimed British GT titles, with Barwell driver Leo Machitski winning the GT3 Drivers Championship and Paul’s Cadena Motorsport team securing the GT3 Teams crown. The 2010 squad will be entered as Barwell-Cadena, and Whight has enlisted the services of professional GT driver, Michael Bentwood, as his co-driver.

Following an extensive winter rebuild by Barwell and upgrading to 2010 specification, Bentwood shook down the DBRS9 at Silverstone last week. The team is now moving on to the Portimao track in Portugal for a two day tyre test with the DBRS9, where the AMR1 Group C car will also receive a shakedown.

Paul is likely to campaign the AMR1 in three of the Group C series events at Portimao, Spa and Paul Ricard. The GT3 Aston will be run in up to seven races selected from different GT championships around Europe, making its 2010 debut at the Oulton Park British GT opener in April.
