Fury Simsport will be bringing a worldwide feel to the ButtKicker Britcar 24 Hour race. Drivers of the #142 AMG Mercedes GT3, are represented from Europe and North America. Fury have been impressing in this season’s IVRA Endurance Championship and will be looking to carry on that form into the ButtKicker Britcar 24 Hour race at Silverstone.
Amongst the drivers for Fury is team co-founder Dan Blake. In the full metal world, Blake is a former Hyundai Coupe Cup race winner, Nippon Challenge class champion in a Mazda MX-5 Mk1 and was a Birkett Six Hour Relay class winner at this very track in 2015. Dan raced a Renault Clio 197 in the BRSCC Clubsport Trophy for three races in 2023, taking his first Clubsport Trophy podium at Silverstone in August. Dan is also a clerk of the course for BARC and Castle Combe Racing Club. In the sim world Dan is a double champion and one of the most successful drivers in the PDC Racing League, which saw a mix of international racers, club racers and sim racers battle it out in the Skip Barber cars.
David Vegh and Stuart Reynolds will be taking part in their first 24 Hour race for the team. American driver, Cade Middleton, has been on a rapid trajectory and in just under a year with the team has gained over 2000 IRating. The evergreen Matthias Temme, is one of the team’s longest serving drivers. Temme is another to watch out for and has shown to be extremely competitive in both GT3 and GT4.
The team have backing from Paddock Promotions through Martin Plowman, who has raced in multiple endurance races for the Fury team over the years, including at LeMans for the 24 hour race, returning to the circuit where he took a real life LMP2 class win in the OAK Racing team in the 2013 LeMans 24 Hour, on the way to clinching the LMP2 World Endurance Championship alongside Ricardo Gonzalez and Bertrand Baguette.
The team also has support from Mark Sykes Designs, Tirestacks.com and Mydas Simulation.
