Gordon-Colebrooke and WHIreland Wealth Management started their partnership in 2018 as the Buckinghamshire racer competed in the Ginetta GT4 Supercup and they are continuing their association as he moves into one of the world’s foremost domestic GT series.
Andrew Gordon-Colebrooke: “I’m delighted that WHIreland Wealth Management have supported me to date through their ongoing sponsorship. It should be an exciting year ahead for both of us as we look to consolidate on our first season in British GT, albeit in a strange environment and over a shortened series due the pandemic. We all hope that we can resume our full partnership for the 2021 season under more “normal” circumstances.”
“Without the support of WHIreland Wealth Management I wouldn’t be racing, and I can’t thank them enough for getting involved. We’ve got some exciting things planned for the season ahead and look forward to announcing those in due course.”
Steve Hutchings, Head of Business Development: “WHIreland Wealth Management are delighted to sponsor Andrew. Our aim last year was to gain exposure for the brand, and Andrew was able to work diligently with his team to enable us to maximise that. The current year does not give us the same exposure and entertaining opportunities, but hopefully we can get back to that in 2021.”
“Up to now, we have been welcomed, and well looked after on race days, where despite the demands upon Andrew, he has made himself available to meet and interact with us. We are confident that this partnership gives us further opportunities for making new contacts.”
The 2020 British GT Championship season officially got underway on 1st August at Donington Park, some 5 months later than it would normally. There are only six meetings on the calendar for 2020 and this year also sees the iconic trip to Spa in Belgium being cancelled due to the pandemic.
The BMW M4 GT4 won both the Drivers’ and Teams’ titles in 2018. After his first full season in British GT in 2019, Andrew is looking to build on his progress this year, and to date has already registered an overall 4th place, and his first “podium”, finishing second at Brands Hatch in the 2-hour endurance race on the Grand Prix circuit.
Andrew Gordon-Colebrooke: “The BMW M4 GT4 is a fantastic car to drive and I’m enjoying getting up to speed with it and pushing it towards its limits.”
“Having raced for Century Motorsport in the Ginetta GT4 Supercup previous to British GT, I have a strong partnership with them and we’re progressing well. The entry for British GT this year is phenomenal and I am enjoying my second season.”
The 2020 British GT Championship will be contested over six events, with eight races ranging from one to three hours in length. The truncated 2020 calendar runs from 1st August to 8th November where the season culminates with the customary 3-hour endurance race at Silverstone.
