British GT races are one, two or three hours long, with two drivers in each car, many of whom also compete at a world championship level. The teams bring a level of professionalism rarely seen outside of Formula 1, with pit stops for refueling, tyre changes and driver swapping at every round adding to the spectacle, creating a strategic element and ensuring surprising twists to the races.
The season goes all round the country including Silverstone the home of motorsport and if you fancy a venture to outside of the UK Matt will be racing on the famous Spa Francorchamps circuit in Belgium in July.
