Xentek Motorsport will mount a full-season entry into the British Endurance Championship for the first time this year, running former Ginetta champions Bal Sidhu and Josh Steed in a Porsche Cayman GT4.

After making their BEC debut in the 2023 season finale, the South Yorkshire team are returning for a full campaign in the popular GT endurance championship alongside their existing one-make Ginetta and Porsche race programmes.

Sidhu is heading into his fifth consecutive season of racing with Xentek, having ended a successful run in Ginetta’s as the 2023 GT5 Challenge Am champion. Steed will be embarking on his first season of racing since his superb 2021 campaign, when he won eight races on his way to the GT5 Challenge Pro title.

While it’s a new car for both Sidhu and Steed, Xentek are no stranger to racing a Porsche Cayman GT4. Securing regular class podium finishes during their maiden Sprint Challenge GB campaign last year, they’re expanding to a multi-car entry for 2024.

Christopher Richards – Team Principal: “We’re excited to be joining the British Endurance Championship grid for the 2024 season. Bal and Josh have a great working relationship and we’re confident that they’ll be a competitive force in the Porsche. It’s an exciting opportunity for both drivers and we’re looking forward to getting the season started.

The Motorsport UK-sanctioned championship visits all of the UK’s premier circuits, including Silverstone, Oulton Park and Snetterton.

The season begins this coming Friday (29th March) with a two-hour race on the Donington Park Grand Prix circuit. Like all of the races this season, the opener will be streamed live on the BARC’s YouTube channel.
