Scuderia VittoriaScuderia Vittoria’s Aaron Scott and John Dhillon head to Leicestershire’s Donington Park this weekend (29/30 September), in confident spirits as they look to end their Avon Tyres British GT Championship season on a high at the world-famous circuit.

The 2011 GT4B Champions endured a tough weekend last time out at Silverstone’s 3hr race, but having excelled previously to establish themselves within the top six at Snetterton 300 and Brands Hatch, Scott and Dhillon remain eager to push for a podium finish in the 2hr season finale this weekend.

“I think that we’re in good shape ahead of the weekend and I’m feeling very confident,” explained Scott. “I think that the field will be very tight during the course of the 2hr race, I’m certainly up for giving our championship counterparts a run for their money.”

“We showed that we were the quickest Ferrari out there at Snetterton 300 and Brands Hatch, so there’s no reason why we can’t fight at the front at Donington. To have same day coverage on Motors TV will also make it extra special.”

Dhillon, who is relatively new to life in the British GT Championship, has been hard at work behind the scenes as he aims to continue his climb through the ranks of the prestigious championship.

Having tested at Donington Park previously, the Leicestershire based driver will be pushing for a strong outing on home turf this weekend.

“We can’t wait to get into the car at Donington Park this weekend,” said Dhillon. “Having tested at Donington Park of late it has allowed us to gain some really useful track knowledge, which should give us a boost as we look to fight for our best finish of the season after a disappointing round at Silverstone.”

“I’ve been working very hard to improve on certain techniques, so hopefully I can put that new found knowledge to good use in the race and have a mega finish to the season.”

The British GT Championship will also enjoy same day TV coverage for the first time at Donington Park this weekend. A 90-minute show will be broadcast on Motors TV at 6pm BST on Sunday, 30th September.
