    The 28-year-old from Thornhill, near Dumfries, will compete in the full 16-race season with In2Racing, the Warwickshire-based team in which Wylie scored four top-five placings in the final four races of last year’s series.

    The 2014 British GT4 Champion finished third in the 2017 Porsche Carrera Cup GB “Rookie” title race, the same year Wylie won the Britcar Endurance Championship outright after 10 overall podiums including four wins. (Related: Wylie has a blast in McNish's Le Mans-winning Porsche)


    Wylie netted the 2018 Britcar Endurance Championship Sprint S1 title in 2018 with co-driver David Mason OBE, and last year racked-up six top-four Britcar Class 2 placings, including three class poles. The Scots’ season though was curtailed after Mason unfortunately suffered an incident causing extensive damage to his FF Corse Ferrari 488 Challenge.

    Mason’s MacConnal-Mason Gallery is the primary sponsor of Wylie’s campaign this year, competing in what is the fastest single marque GT racing championship in the UK.

    The series visits eight of the UK’s most famous race circuits including Silverstone and Brands Hatch. Rounds 11 & 12 are held at Knockhill near Dunfermline over August 29/30.

    The Porsche 911 GT3, powered by a four-litre, six-cylinder engine, can achieve speeds of around 170 mph.
