GT Cup at Brands Hatch 2016

Brands Hatch GT cup 2016

After a shaky start to the GT cup season with our 458 at Donington Park with gearbox issues and some contact in the last race, the sun was out at Brands Hatch at the weekend and the car and Drivers were back in business!

Paul managed a second in class in his first race and a 1st in class in his second race on Saturday. An even hotter Sunday saw track temperatures around 34 degrees! Paul managed a second in class qualify position. The 50 min two driver race in the afternoon started well, two safety car sessions  in the first 20 minutes closed the grid up which helped us close the gap on the 1st in class Porsche GT3.

The team Pitted Paul at the start of the driver pit-stop window, this give Andy a good run at catching the Porsche before he had to make his mandatory stop and driver change. Andy managed to achieve  the fastest lap in class and put the car in the 1st in class position and bring home some need championship points.
