An in and out year will conclude on the track for Matty this weekend, as he returns to the In2Racing stable for the final race of the British GT season at Donington Park,

The 21-year-old from Stamfordham will be joined by Will Phillips at the wheel of the team’s number 14 car, as he rounds out his 2017 campaign as it started, racing a McLaren 570S GT4 for the two-hour season finale.

It will be the first time on track in over two months for Matty, who last raced in British GT back at July’s meeting at Spa Francorchamps, but after taking a pair of last to first wins from that event, he heads to the Leicestershire circuit in a positive frame of mind.

Matty said: “I’m pleased to be back out with In2Racing for the Donington Decider. We enjoyed some good results together at the start of the year and I’m hopeful we can be strong at the weekend.

“The 570S won around here last year, so it’s a car that’s got a good result in it, and both Will and I won our last races in GT4 and I’ve been on the podium in four out of the five races I’ve contested this year, so we’ve hopefully got some momentum behind us.”

For Matty, that momentum is generated from enjoying a double win in his last outing with Ebor GT and their Maserati GT MC GT4.

It was a race weekend that also saw him set a new lap record for the category at the track by 2.8 seconds into the bargain, with the North Eastern driver harbouring a deep desire to show how much of that dominant performance can be laid at his door.

And after taking to the podium in eight of the 14 British GT races he has taken the start for in his career to date, is targeting adding more silverware to his collection.

He added: “I don’t see any reason why we can’t go and plan on fighting for the victory.  I’ve been putting in some of my best drivers ever this season, I really like Donington as a track, so I think it’s definitely possible to take that top step of the podium.

“Last year at Donington when I was with Macmillan AMR, it was a great fight for the win and would have been more so had there not been problems with the Aston’s breaks, so I’m very optimistic about what we can do.”
