Just 2 weeks after my 2013 season kicked off at Oulton Park in the British GT I was off to Donington Park for the first round of the Britcar Endurance Series. I am competing for FauldSport in their Ginetta G55 Cup car partnering Flick Haigh.
We were positive going into the weekend and after qualifying things looked positive. We qualified in second position behind the BMW M3 GTR that was 2 seconds quicker than anything in our class!
Flick started the race and she drove an outstanding stint challenging the class 1 cars for position! Flick brought the car in for the driver change in second position, still behind the M3 after a few laps I got passed the M3 and started to pull out a lead, however behind was the Chevron GT4 car driven by Anthony Reid on brand new wet tyres lapping 3 seconds a lap quicker than us on 2 hour old worn wets.
The chevron passed down the Craner Curves with only 5 laps to go. However I still brought the car home in second position.
I think that this is a fantastic start to our season and I am looking forward to our next race on the 1st of June at Rockingham.
Look forward to seeing you there,
