Round 2 of the Ginetta Cars GT5 Challenge was on the Brands GP layout this weekend supporting British GT’s.
Testing on Friday was on the shorter Indy circuit so the decision was made not to do this. Instead, we strapped the awning to anything that didn’t move & sat out the storm & 50mph winds that hit.
Qualifying on Saturday morning was the first time Will had ever driven the GP circuit, and the first time Connor had been back on track since finding some car issues post Thruxton.
Connor qualified P3 for race 1 & pole for race 2 whilst Will improved through the 20 min session to net P13 for race 1 & P14 for race 2.
Race 1, Connor finished P7 & Will P10.
Race 2, Connor finished P4 & Will P10.
Race 3, Connor starting in P4 finished P3, Will started P10 & finished P10.
A great result for both boys, Connor scoring his first podium of the year, Will improving every session & in ever changing weather to continue his run of top 10 finishes in every race this year.
Thanks to staff, driver coach Bobby Thompson & the drivers family for their help over the weekend.
Lots happening before the next round at Silverstone, next time we’ll be aiming for both cars on the podium.
