Leitch debuts in British GT Champs at Spa this weekend

Brendon Leitch will make his debut in the Intelligent Money British GT Championship at the Spa-Francorchamps Circuit this weekend with the German squad, Leipert Motorsport. The Kiwi driver will be joined by Fidel Leib at the fourth round of the series in Belgium.

Leitch finished runner-up in Super Trofeo Asia’s Pro-Am class and fifth in the same manufacturer’s World Final with Leipert in 2019.

Leib has also raced in Super Trofeo Europe as well as the GT4-based DTM Trophy with Leipert. Like his co-driver, the two-time Nurburgring 24 Hour class winner makes his British GT debut at Spa.
