RACING racing driver Rory Bryant is moving up a gear in motorsport.

The Queensferry racer will this season move from driving a Fiesta RS to competing in endurance racing.

Rory is set to will compete in the Britcar Production Cup with the first round being staged at Silverstone Grand Prix Circuit tomorrow (Saturday).

Rory last season competed in both the Fiesta RS and Ginetta G40 championships but has decided to continue solely with the Ginetta.

He said: “Having won two Scottish Championships I feel I have achieved enough to focus my efforts on a bigger stage down south, although no doubt I will get talked into racing in Scotland at some point throughout the year!”

The Britcar championship will see Rory race against different marques such as BMW, Seat, Honda, Renauly and instead of six lap races, each race will last 90 minutes and there will be pitstops for refueling and driver changes. His fellow driver is his team manager and driver coach Simon Mason.

Looking further ahead this season, Rory could take part in the his first 24 hour race when it is staged at Silverstone in September.
