Reigning British GT champion Seb Morris will drive a Team Parker racing Bentley in its return to the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup.
Morris competed for the team during his British GT3 title-winning season last year, before he then featured on the Celebs Go Dating TV show.
The move also marks the Team Parker outfit’s return to Blancpain for the first time since 2016, and Morris will now share a first-generation Bentley Continental GT3 with Derek Pierce and Ade Barwick.
Morris believes that Blancpain is the highest level of sportscar racing and is targeting a title challenge in 2018.
“I am delighted to have signed with Team Parker Racing for my first proper assault on the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup, which I consider to be the biggest sportscar championship in the world right now,” he said.
“Winning last year’s title means I now feel ready to leave British GT and use all the experience learned there over the past two years to mount a championship challenge with Ade and Derek.
“I know all about Team Parker and the Bentley Continental GT3, which is a proven championship-winner against top Pro-Am competition.
“So I feel extremely confident that we can get out there and win in Blancpain.”
Morris’s former British GT team-mate Rick Parfitt will share his British title-winning Bentley with Ryan Ratcliffe this year.
