Isaac Tutumlu and Barzani Racing Team head to Silverstone this time for the fifth round of the International GT Open, taking place at the famous British track. Tutumlu has achieved three podiums from six races driving the Chevrolet Corvette C6/ZR1 fielded by Selleslagh Racing Team by Barzani, and his goals are similar in Great Britain. It is worth mentioning on British soil his teammate will be English, as Archie Hamilton replaces Maxime Soulet. Hamilton, grandson of a former Le Mans winner in the fifties, is a young driver but with much experience in the Int´l GT Open series, because he has competed in the championship for the last few years.

“We arrive in England for another race meeting, the fifth, to be held at Silverstone and with a few novelties. They include my new teammate, Archie, a young driver with a brilliant future ahead and who even has participated in the 24 hours of Le Mans recently. I know him for a year and we get along. He knows Silverstone perfectly, because he lives practically next-door to Silverstone. With regard to Chevrolet, he has already driven the GT1 car, so to get used to the GT2 cars will be much easier”, Tutumlu comments. He also points out “Silverstone should be a better track than Hungaroring for the Chevrolet. Nevertheless, I hope it doesn´t rain. There are a number of changes in the BoP for Silverstone, and Ferraris in GTS class will be less competitive but those in Super GT they will be as quick as always. I hope that we can achieve good results this weekend in order to improve my 7th place in the standings before going on holiday”.

Track activity starts with test sessions on Thursday, with two free practice sessions on Friday to set-up the car. On Saturday both qualifying sessions take place at 9.00 (GMT) and 11.20 (GMT) respectively and later, at 3PM, will start weekend´s first race. The weekend concludes with race two at 12.30 on Sunday.
