Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3
Fortec Motorsports Ltd is owned by ex-racing driver and businessman Richard Dutton. Having put his own racing career behind him, Richard began working for Fortec in 1993 and became owner of the outfit two years later in 1995. The team began racing in Formula 3000 and Formula Opel and has grown over the years to become the biggest single seater race team in the UK. 2012 saw the team run twenty-three drivers across six racing formulas from Formula 1 feeder series Formula Renault 3.5 to one of the first rungs of the racing ladder BARC Formula Renault. Fortec finished in the top three of all six formulas they ran in and took the championship titles in the Formula Renault 3.5, Formula Renault NEC and Intersteps.
But in 2013, Fortec did not only enter single-seaters championships (F3, World Series and FRenault), as the team entered GT racing for the first time. The team ran two Mercedes AMG SLS’s in the British GT Championship and also competed in two rounds of the Blancpain Endurance Series. The team decided to enter the Baku World Challenge, last round of the FIA GT Series with its Mercedes SLS AMG and two well-known drivers in the team: Oliver Webb and Benji Hetherington.
Fortec will run two Mercedes SLS AMG GT3 in the Blancpain Sprint Series.
