Morris Hopes To Stay With JRM Bentley Team In 2020

Seb Morris hopes to stay with the JRM team in the British GT Championship next season, after finishing seventh in the drivers’ standings after an encouraging first year in the team’s Bentley Continental GT3. “JRM put together a brand new team for this year and they’ve done a superb job, I’m looking forward to hopefully being back with them next year – if they want me,” said Morris. It’s not been the easiest of seasons for the Wrexham-born driver, who endured more misfortune during the final British GT round at Donington Park last weekend. Running 60kg of ballast and less turbo boost, the unfavourable Balance of Performance (BOP) restrains ensured that the JRM Bentley of Morris and team-mate Rick Parfitt Jnr was the slowest GT3 car through the speed traps and consistently slower down on the competition along the straights.
