Ross Wylie will be driving the iconic Lamborghini GT3 sportscar in this year's British GT Championship.

The 29-year-old from Thornhill has added the prestigious British GT Championship campaign to his GT Cup season.

Wylie, who is supported by the MacConnal-Mason Gallery, returns to British GT for the first time since 2016, teaming-up with Lucky Khera to race a Simon Green Motorsport Lamborghini Huracán in the GT3 class of the televised nine-race series.

Additionally, Wylie races a SB Race Engineering prepared Ferrari sportscar in the GT Cup along with Paul Bailey.

He said: “I’m really excited to be competing in British GT again. It’s a great series and to be racing a Lambo, which will be a totally new challenge for me, is just amazing.

"We’d like to challenge for overall podiums but the new Silver-Am class is our primary focus this year. It gives us something to aim at while finding our feet in what is a very competitive series.

“The BGT programme neatly dovetails in with my GT Cup season.

"It’s not every day a driver gets to race Lamborghini and Ferrari sportscars; legendary, iconic Italian marques. 2021 will be very busy but so exciting.”

Wylie bagged second and third places .at Silverstone last month and then followed those results up with second and fourth placings at the Brands Hatch circuit last weekend.

His first outing in the British GT Championship will also be at Brands Hatch on May 22 and 23.
