Classic Sports Car Club Silverstone Spectacular. 407 race entries for the weekend is a club record.
We raced in the New Millennium series race on the International circuit.
Qualified in 3rd position on the grid behind Butler Motorsport’s two Ginetta G55 cars.
The other two Ginetta suffered a spin and contact with a Holden V8. We continued to circulate in P1 until the compulsory pit stop. The P2 car, SEAT Leon Eurocup car performed a quicker pit stop and came out of the pit lane in P1.
Due to a car stranded just off Club Corner, Code 60 was used, at this point we found ourselves in P2 but with four back marker cars between us and P1.
As soon as the Code 60 ceased, a brave move into Abbey put us only one car behind the SEAT. Patience was the name of the game now, just wait for the opportunity for the clean move going into Stowe to take P1.
The move worked and moments later a BMW M3 suffered a fire and caused the Chequered flag to come out ahead of time.
A great result to take 1st overall and 1st in class.
Northern Commercials prepared the car and applied their branding to the Ginetta.
A really nice connection to be working with Northern Commercials, a local business to us and a market leader in their field.
While the car was being branded we also took the opportunity to improve the silencing of the exhaust systems, heat protection and repair some of the composite panels.
