Smalley makes British GT move for 2024

Adam Smalley makes the switch to British GT for the 2024 season. He will be racing with Garage 59 in the McLaren 720s GT3 EVO.

McLaren resplendent in the iconic Duckhams livery, reigning Porsche Carrera Cup GB Champion, Adam Smalley, will take on the GT3 Silver-Am category alongside British GT veteran Shaun Balfe. Fresh from his recent championship win, this will be Adam’s first season in the British GT Championship.

Smalley said:

I’m delighted to have signed for Garage 59 for the 2024 British GT Championship. After winning the Porsche Carrera Cup GB title last season, I feel this is the perfect move for my motorsport career. It’ll be a big step up but I know Garage 59 will give me the best shot at challenging at the sharp end of the field. I’d like to say thank you to Duckhams, Yuasa and all of my partners who have given me this opportunity and made it possible. I can’t wait to get the season underway.

Shaun Balfe is a name synonymous with success in British GT and was on board the McLaren 720S GT3, which claimed the manufacturer’s first British GT class victory for that car in 2019. More recently, he ended his 2023 season as a double race winner and is ready to add to that tally this year alongside Adam.

The 2024 British GT Championship will begin with its traditional pair of Easter Weekend races at Oulton Park, before taking in some of the UK’s top circuits and the ever-iconic Spa-Francorchamps circuit in Belgium.

Garage 59 Team Principal, Andrew Kirkaldy said: “I’m really pleased with our British GT line-ups for 2024. I think both crews have winning potential in their respective categories so our job is to give them everything they need to do just that.”
