New Malden’s Tom Onslow-Cole has agreed a one-year deal to pair up with KPM Racing team-mate Paul White in the 2014 British GT Championship this summer.

The 26-year-old and his more senior partner White have helped their team to two podium finishes – including one class win – in as many 24H Series outings so far this year.

“I really feel that the time is right for me to go and explore GT racing,” said Onslow-Cole, who quit the British Touring Car Championship earlier this year “It’s got huge appeal right now and I don’t think this move will come as a shock to many.

“Paul and I have already competed in some endurance racing events together and we have proved to be a really strong pairing.”
