Blake Angliss Joins Xentek Motorsport For 2023 Ginetta Finale
Blake Angliss is aiming to end his 2023 race season on a high after confirming his return to the Ginetta GT Championship grid for the final rounds of the season at Donington Park next weekend (21/22 October).
The highly-rated young driver, who finished runner-up in the G55 Pro class of the Ginetta GT4 SuperCup last year, has enjoyed two fantastic appearances in the championship so far this season, posting a brilliant record of nine podium finishes from nine races.
A stunning debut at Silverstone as part of the prestigious ‘G Fest’ event saw Angliss take four perfect lights-to-flag victories and two further podiums, which he duly followed up with a supreme top three treble in the next rounds at Snetterton.
Angliss’ eagerly-anticipated return to the grid at Donington Park comes with leading outfit Xentek Motorsport. One of the most successful Ginetta teams in recent history, Xentek have secured no less than three championship titles this season including the GT Championship Teams’ crown.
The Coventry-based racer will get back behind the wheel of a Ginetta G56 GT Pro during pre-event testing on Thursday and Friday, before tackling qualifying and three races across the weekend on the full Donington Park Grand Prix circuit.
Blake Angliss: “I’m very excited to be getting back on the Ginetta GT Championship grid for the final rounds of the season. We had two fantastic outings earlier this year, so I was determined to get a deal together to race once more and show everyone what I can do again.
“Donington Park GP is a brilliant circuit and with the support of a great team in Xentek Motorsport, I’m confident we can go there and fight at the front of the field again. Thank you to Transend UK, Haigh Engineering and Concept Garage Equipment for their continued support.”
Sarah-Jayne McKenna, Xentek Motorsport Team Manager: “We’re very excited to have Blake joining our team for the final round of the season. He's a talented young driver and his podium record across his two outings this season is hugely impressive, so we're hoping to build on that and bring home some more silverware at Donington Park.”
