Harley to race Mercedes at Silverstone & Donington Park for Breakell Racing

Stockport’s Harley Haughton will contest selected races in the prestigious British GT Championship racing for Lancashire-based Breakell Racing.
 
Haughton, aged 19, will race a Mercedes-AMG in the GT4 Pro-Am class in the 3hr Silverstone 500 later this month (28 Apr), the second race in the nine-round BGT series, and the penultimate round, a 2hr race at Donington Park (8 Sep).
 
Harley actually raced the Mercedes for the first time at Donington Park last month (29 Mar), Haughton and team-mate Carl Garnett finishing an excellent third in class, sixth overall, in the 2hr British Endurance Championship race at Donington Park in preparation for his BGT campaign.
 
Haughton, who is also contesting the Nürburgring Langstrecken-Serie in Germany this year, made a one-off appearance for Breakell Racing last summer, placing second twice plus third in three Ginetta GT Championship races having competed with Breakell in the Nürburgring 24 Hours last May.
