Ex Aston Martin, Bentley and DeltaWing factory driver Andy Meyrick has signed a deal with new team Bullitt Racing to drive in the GT4 European Series Northern Cup in 2017 in the team’s new McLaren 570S GT4.
Multiple Blancpain race winner and GAD Tuning athlete Andy Meyrick will be competing in all 6 race weekends across 6 different countries with his new teammate Stephen Pattrick.
The new team, led by endurance racing legend David Price is looking to make a real impact on the relaunched GT4 Series. Price and Meyrick have collaborated several times before, including at DeltaWing, and, once before on a McLaren programme too, Meyrick racing for the Price-managed Gulf Racing effort at the Spa 24 Hours in 2012 aboard a McLaren MP4/12C GT3.
Andy said: “I’ve been keeping a very close eye on GT4 for the last couple of years now, I really admire the racing and the close competition.
“The team is well organised and I’m sure will be competitive very quickly, this was a key part of my decision to take the role.
“Led by David Price, the team has a great opportunity to challenge at the front of the pack this year. There’s a lot to learn here in what is a very new team, but we have the right people to get the job done.
“I’m excited to be a part of GT4, and particularly to be racing the new McLaren”.
Meyrick has already sampled the 570S GT4, the ‘baby’ McLaren now in its first season with Customer teams after a development year in British GT last season.
“The McLaren is a great little car. Really comfortable to drive, great balance, amazing in slow speed corners. As a Pro I can really work with it and for an Am driver it is well balanced and predictable. ”
Team principal David Price said: “We were looking for an experienced GT racer to lead our team and take the fight straight to the front, Andy is perfect for the role. We are delighted to have him onboard”.
