Secure Racing have confirmed Tiff Needell as a driver for Silverstone British GT finale

SECURE Racing and Barwell Motorsport have unveiled Tiff Needell as one of its drivers for the final round of the British GT Championship at Silverstone.

As one of the best known faces in British motorsport Tiff brings a wealth of driving experience to the team for the final round.

He will join principal driver Peter Erceg in the Secure Racing Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT4 2011 as the team attempts to secure a second podium finish of the season.

Peter said: “Tiff has raced just about everything with wheels; Formula Ford, Formula One, Le Mans, GT1, Rallycross. You name it, he’s competed.

“That type of experience is going to be amazing for us at Silverstone. We are thrilled to have him on board for the day.”

The last round of the British GT Championship represents an end to a fantastic first year into British GT motorsport for Secure Racing.

Finishing fifth at Brands Hatch cheered on by more than 50 team supporters and third for a podium finish at Spa, the team couldn’t quite keep up the progress as gearbox troubles hampered performance at Donington last weekend.

Secure Racing is keen to go out on a high, with a trophy in hand and Mohan Koo, Dtex Systems sponsor spokesman said: “We’ve reached the pinnacle of the season and everything seems to be working together for the last race.

“The car is at its absolute best following some amazing work by the guys at Barwell Motorsport, all our sponsors are going to be with us on the day to cheer us on, and our driver line up couldn’t be better.

“It’s the ultimate position, in the ultimate race, using the ultimate team of drivers, on the ultimate UK track. We can’t wait.”
