Welcome to BUTE Motorsport

Bute Motorsport was founded in 2007 and was the brain child of Marc Haynes who having been frustrated by the lack of racing opportunity for sporting drivers and their varied race cars developed and created the idea of a GT Cup race series to provide the ideal environment for like minded racers.

From its first year in 2008 as a series, the GT Cup became a full Championship in 2009 and flourished under Marc’s close attention to the wishes of the entrants and drivers.   Marc, as founder and CEO, believed passionately that the GT Cup Championship should be run ‘by racers for racers’. This founding philosophy remains at the heart of the GT Cup, which continues to provide amateur enthusiasts with the opportunity to race against like-minded drivers in a congenial, but competitive, environment.

Our paddock is renowned for being friendly and relaxed within a professional atmosphere, from the organisers to the marshals, teams and drivers, they all collectively look to support each other and share our mutual passion for motorsport. The racing is strongly contested and the GT Cup maintains and enforces driver standards to protect the values we uphold. This attention to sporting behaviour is central to our growing success and why the GT Cup is attracting manufacturer support in the form of their driver programs. The GT Cup enjoys one of the widest varieties of GT race car grids in the United Kingdom.

Bute Motorsport has become an established part of the UK Motorsport scene and continues to grow in stature and popularity.  As hosts to our clients’ aspirations, we provide a friendly professional arena where they may fully indulge their passion for motorsport.
