ELLIS MAKES FIA GT DEBUT

British GT front runner Bradley Ellis, from Croydon, will make his FIA GT debut at Monza, Italy, this weekend for rounds five and six of the championship on 23 & 24 June 2007. The recently turned 20-year-old will be racing with Team RPM but, rather than sharing the car with his usual team mate Alex Mortimer, the pair will be racing head to head for the first time.

Currently lying fifth in the Avon Tyres British GT Championship, Ellis will chariot the Team RPM Dodge Viper Competition Coupe alongside experienced FIA GT racer Ed Morris. Although it will be his first guest FIA GT race, Ellis will benefit from his 2004 Formula Renault Italia and Monza race experience.

Ellis commented: "I'm really looking forward to my first FIA GT race with Ed, we should make a good pairing and I hope we do well. There's a few differences compared to racing in the British GTs, particularly to running on a completely different compound with Michelin tyres, but I'm confident I'll get to grips with the car in practice."
