Xentek Motorsport will make their British Endurance Championship debut this weekend (14/15 October), running a Ginetta G56 GTP for Bal Sidhu and Josh Steed at Donington Park.
The South Yorkshire team will enter the popular endurance GT championship for its 2023 season finale, with Ginetta GT Championship regular Sidhu and 2021 GT5 Challenge champion Steed pairing up to contest the two-hour race on the full Grand Prix circuit.
For Steed, the event will mark a long-awaited return to racing for the first time since his GT5 success. The 21-year-old talent, who scored eight race wins in his sensational title-winning campaign with Xentek, is excited to be racing alongside Sidhu, who he regularly driver coaches for.
Sidhu meanwhile will be using the weekend to gain more experience as he continues to progress behind the wheel of his G56. The West Midlands racer has impressively picked up a handful of overall top six finishes in the GT Championship, including a best of fourth at Cadwell Park.
Christopher Richards – Team Principal: “We’re really looking forward to joining the competitive British Endurance Championship grid. It’s a great opportunity for Bal to continue his development and get more track time in the G56, while we’re very excited for Josh to get the chance to show everyone his immense talent again.”
The British Endurance Championship runs to a successful multi-class format, covering numerous specifications of vehicle including GT3, GT4, TCR and one-make cup cars. The Motorsport UK-sanctioned championship’s race will be streamed live this weekend on the BARC’s YouTube channel.
