Championship-winning duo joins 2 Seas Motorsport for British GT return
2 Seas Motorsport is pleased to confirm the exciting title-winning pairing of Flick Haigh and Jonny Adam will make a highly anticipated return to the Intelligent Money British GT championship grid, racing with the team at selected rounds during the season. The 2018 series champions will be reunited for the first time since they took the title, initially joining the action from round two for the Silverstone 500, before heading to Snetterton and Brands Hatch. The pair will run in a second Mercedes-AMG GT3 of 2 Seas Motorsport, alongside the full-season entry of James Cottingham and Lewis Williamson.
Flick Haigh returns to the championship for the first time since securing overall GT3 honours in 2018. With the title win, Flick wrote history by becoming the first female driver to achieve the result; a feat made even more impressive with it being her series debut. She will once again be joined by one of the championship’s most decorated competitors, Jonny Adam.
Jonny Adam has become a stalwart of the British GT grid over the past decade, sharing driving duties with Flick during the 2018 season to claim his third of four titles. Jonny now takes on a familiar challenge, racing with Flick for a second time, but in an all-new environment. Having enjoyed all his success in the series so far with Aston Martin in his role as Factory Driver, 2022 will mark a new debut for the Scot as he makes his first ever race start with the Mercedes-AMG GT3.
“It’s taken a while, but I am so pleased to be able to say that I’m back. The British GT championship holds some really fantastic memories, and it is great to continue this journey alongside Jonny and to join 2 Seas Motorsport. I am really pleased to be heading to Silverstone for our first race where we scored a podium back in 2018, and the team had a great result there last year, so we are going to be pushing for a strong result from the start and looking to build on this at Snetterton and Brands Hatch.”

“I am super excited to be back in British GT for a few selected rounds, and back racing with Flick. Last time we raced together we shared a championship victory in 2018 and it’s great to see her back behind the wheel of a GT3 car. We have tested with 2 Seas Motorsport and the team have been great to work with, so we have high hopes to try and achieve some solid results for Flick on her return, back to British GT. I’d also like to say a big thank you to Aston Martin Racing for letting me do the races with Flick and 2 Seas.”

“It is a real coup for us to confirm that Flick and Jonny will be reunited to take on these additional British GT events. Flick secured the title on her debut, which is a huge result, and remains the only female driver to have achieved this. Jonny has proved on multiple occasions to be the class of the field and is one of the most successful drivers in the history of the championship. It is really exciting to bring them back together, and we are excited to see them both competing with us in the Mercedes-AMG.”
