Hulford Plans For 2007
British GT racer Miles Hulford has been busy this past week – testing two very different cars with a view to racing them next year.

“On Tuesday last week, my father Gerry and I shook down our recent acquisition, a Prosport LM3000 which performed well during the day’s shakedown, at Goodwood.”

This car could have an impact on the structure of the British GT Championship in 2007, because Hulford is considering running it in the GT2 Class – if it exists.

“Our recent discussions with another interested GT2 team may well lead to us racing it in the Avon Tyres British GT Championship, because there is a likelihood that the required six cars could be brought together for 2007. If this does not happen then my father has other plans to run the car himself elsewhere next year, with myself
wherever possible.

”We then took the Prosport to Silverstone GP circuit the following day and after fitting fresh tyres and a couple of suspension tweaks, we were extremely happy with its handling and performance and its overall potential competitiveness. The car has been well looked after and has only been used for track days for a number of years.”

While at Silverstone, Miles Hulford also sampled one of the Tech 9 GT3 Porsches.

”I had been invited by Phil Hindley to do an informal test in the Tech 9 Porsche 997 GT3 with a view to my continuing in British GT or moving up to FIA GT3 next year. The test went very well indeed as I found the improvements in the Tech 9 997 Porsche were very much more to my liking than the 996 version I have been driving this year. The choice of team or indeed type of car for next year is still as yet undecided as other tests are planned to evaluate the options for 2007.”
