First tried by the pairing at the final round of the 2019 GT Cup Series at Snetterton last year, Holloway then committed to the bespoke Gulf 12hr with Optimum alongside other the cars other customer drivers Michael Dinan and David Whitmore.

Such was the positive experience with both the car and team at the event that American racer Dinan has already gone on to confirm a switch to the AMR marque for his 2020 racing endeavours over in the States in the SRO's GT4 America Series before this weeks announcement from the team and Holloway for their full season GT Cup entry.

GT Cup 2020 will consist of seven rounds, each with three races apiece starting at Donington Park in mid April.
