Morgan And Marcos Back For More in 2006
Keith Ahlers and Chris Beighton were both wandering the halls at the NEC yesterday, and both were happy to confirm that they will be back in the GT3 class of the British GT Championship for 2006 - in the Team Aero Morgan and Team Tiger Marcos respectively: a welcome return for both of these V8-engined race winners.

Ahlers hopes to be joined by 2005 team mate Oliver Bryant, but is waiting on a decision for the in-demand youngster, whilst Beighton will be joined by long-time team mate Jon Finnemore for “one more season before we go back to historics.”

“GT racing has been a fantastic experience for us,” continued Beighton, “but we have no ambition to do anything beyond British GTs. We’re making one or two changes to the Marcos, mainly to make it more reliable.”

The British GT Championship needs the variety that the Morgan and Marcos provide in GT3 (Cup), a class that was largely Porsche (and Ferrari) dominated in 2005 – certainly in terms of entry numbers, if not winners.

Noble, Lotus, Corvette, Prosport and Vauxhall entries have all faded out of the scene in recent years.
