Basingstoke racing driver Aaron Morgan has unveiled his wheels for 2022 – a McLaren 570S GT, which he will race in the British GT Championship in 2022.

Aaron, who is a paraplegic following a motocross accident when he was 15, is a driver for Team BRIT which aims to be the first ever all-disabled team to race in the Le Mans 24 hour.

Team BRIT’s goal of making motorsport history at the iconic race is moving closer as it unveiled its car for 2022 – a brand new McLaren 570S GT4. The news comes after the season finale of the Britcar Championship which took place at Donington Park on the 23rd and 24th October.

Alongside teammate Bobby Trundley from Wokingham, Aaron secured 3rd place and took an overall championship finish position of 3rd in class, bagging yet more silverware for the team.

Next year, Aaron and Bobby will be driving the new McLaren in the British GT Championship.

Aaron unveiled the car to sponsors and supporters at an exclusive event held in London today, Wednesday 27th October. The car is the focal point of a celebration hosted by team title sponsor BRIT Insurance.

The McLaren is a full competition specification GT4 car featuring a feather-light carbon fibre chassis and 3.8 litre twin-turbocharged McLaren V8 engine, linked to a race-ready 7-speed transmission.

The team’s world-leading racing hand controls have been fitted to the car to enable Aaron to compete on equal terms with able-bodied competitors.

Aaron and Bobby have stunned competitors on the track this year in the Britcar Endurance Championship with multiple podiums and an overall championship finish position of 3rd in class.

The announcement adds an additional step to the ladder of motorsport development on offer through the team for disabled drivers. With Aaron and Bobby competing in British GT in 2022, drivers Andy Tucker and Luke Pound will step up to the team’s Aston Martin GT4 in Britcar and new rookies will begin their racing journey in the team’s bespoke-build BMWs.

In addition, disabled drivers looking to experience the thrill of the race track can book onto track sessions though the team’s Racing Academy.

Aaron explains: “We could not have asked for a better end to the season. We started so well, with early podiums, and had mixed success mid-way, before finishing with a bang again, taking a race podium and an overall class finish of P3. I couldn’t be prouder of what we’ve achieved.

“Motorsport has been part of my life for as long as I can remember and I’ve never allowed my disability to put an end to this sport that I love. Team BRIT has given me the technology I need to stay competitive, with support from the world’s best crew and it will be a real honour to drive the McLaren in British GT next year.”
