Lanan Racing’s bid for the GT4 class Championship title in the 2017 British GT Championship was over in 20 minutes last weekend at Donington Park after contact left the team’s Ginetta G55 in the gravel, with a missing front wheel, and out of both the race and the Championship hunt.
Team Owner Graham Johnson though was bullish about the future: “Of course that was a rotten way to finish what’s been a brilliant all-season battle but we intend to be back in 2018 for another crack at it with Ginetta.”
The Cranfield based team though plan to add another programme in 2018, alongside their GT4 and single seater efforts.
“I’m planning to come back to LMP3,” said Johnson, Lanan Racing having raced already with some success in the ELMS with a Ginetta and in support of the ARC Bratislava Asian LMS effort in 2016/17 that so nearly grabbed the title!
“We’re in the midst of assessing potential efforts in both the Michelin Le Mans Cup and in the UK LMP3 Championship but I’m not keen to do it in ‘just another’ Ligier so we are in conversation with Norma about what can be done about a new M30 which would help to shake things upon a little. As always at this point we have some interest from potential drivers but would be very happy to hear from others.”
