TF Sport has announced that Graham Davidson will join the team for a 2019 British GT Championship GT3 campaign with defending champion and Aston Martin factory driver Jonny Adam.
The duo will race with TF in a new Aston Martin Vantage GT3, in what will be Davidson’s first season with the outfit and second season in the championship. He raced in British GT last year in a Jetstream Motorsport-entered Aston Vantage, with Maxime Martin.
The pairing will also compete alongside multiple race-winner Mark Farmer and a yet to be confirmed second driver in TF’s sister car.
“We started informal talks with Graham at Brands Hatch and then met up over the Donington weekend and pretty much tied up the deal,” said TF Sport director Tom Ferrier. “He has shown impressive pace in his first season in the British GT Championship and is already part of the Aston Martin racing family, so I’m sure that together we will enjoy success in 2019.
“Obviously it’s great to have Jonny back with us in British GT. His pace is never in question and he has the maturity to put together championships. Together with Graham and the new GT3 package, it should be a very strong campaign.”
Adam, who won the 2018 title with Flick Haigh added: “It’s good to be returning to TF Sport, Tom knows how to put together a good team. I raced against Graham this year and he proved to be a very rapid Am and his win at Spa shows that he has the pace and is learning quickly how to get the most out every opportunity. It’s his second year with Aston Martin, so it’s great to see him stepping up with the new Vantage.
“We all like to set goals ahead of every season, he will be aiming for his first championship and I’ll be pushing hard for my fourth. I’ll work closely with him in terms of coaching, simulator work and making sure that he’s completely focused on the driving. I’m quietly confident that as a team, we can put together a strong championship challenge.”
The championship gets underway next year at Oulton Park over the Easter weekend and concludes with the second visit to Donington Park next September.
