Keen & Balon To Return To British GT With Barwell In 2020

But De Haan will not be back

2019 British GT Teams and GT3 Pro-Am Drivers Champion, Barwell Motorsport, has confirmed that Adam Balon will be continuing in one of its Lamborghini Huracan GT3 Evos for the 2020 season alongside Lamborghini works driver Phil Keen.

This year Balon, in his first GT3 season, along with Keen claimed victory in both races at Snetterton and led the overall driver’s championship for much of the season.

Along with this announcement, Barwell has revealed that Pro-Am Drivers’ champion Sam De Haan will not return to race with the team in a second Huracan.

“Due to Sam’s Silver FIA driver grading, and rapid development over the last two seasons, as he enters his third season of GT3 he is no longer permitted to partner with a factory Pro-level driver and it has been difficult for us to find a suitably graded and qualified Pro driver to continue with Sam in BGT as a Pro-Am pairing,” a statement from the team reads.

“Hence, unfortunately, Sam won’t be with us again for the 2020 season in British GT, however, we are very proud of what he has achieved with us since being a race rookie only three years ago, and we wish him all the best for the future.”

Barwell is currently carrying out a series of test days over the next month, as it evaluates possible serious replacements for Sam in its British GT line-up.
