blancpain16 (127)Our first visit to a Blancpain GT Series race saw us take in the 3hr endurance race at Silverstone. With dry conditions and periods of warm sunshine the race was fast and frantic, with over 20 cars still on the lead lap at the halfway point. A late safety car bunched up the field with little more than 20 minutes of racing time left so it was hard fought win for Maxi Buhk / Dominik Baumann / Jazeman Jaafar in the HTP Motorsport Mercedes SLS by less than a second from the Belgian Audi Club Team WRT’s Audi R8 of Laurens Vanthoor / Dries Vanthoor / Fred Vervisch. The pole position sitting GRT Grasser Racing Team Lamborghini Huracan driven by Mirko Bortolotti / Rolf Ineichen / Jeroen Bleekemolen completed the podium. Read More »

plains16 (7)We got our first dose of dust in 2016 thanks to the recent dry spell of weather. Luke Francis & John Roberts (Evo IX) started first on the road and had the advantage of a clear view, which was countered by road sweeping duties and a high quality top 10 behind them. It was Tom Cave & James Morgan (Fiesta R5 Evo) who were fastest out the blocks through Gartheiniog and they took an early lead from Julian Reynolds & Patrick Walsh (Focus WRC). Reynolds was fastest on the next stage, pegging back a few seconds but Cave then headed the time sheets for the rest of the day to take victory by 27 seconds. Reynolds was joint fastest with Cave on two of the remaining 5 stages to take 2nd overall with Francis a fine 3rd overall. Read More »

Master of Midshires (1)This is starting to become a regular thing! Thanks to the night boat back to Heysham we made it to our 2nd Master of Midshires in a row and the contrast with the Isle of Man could not have been more stark. Warwickshire was enjoying its warmest day of 2016 and the Victory Field track needed constant damping down to try and help with the dust. Once again there was great action throughout the day with the ‘Big Chairs’, 1000cc sidecars, taking centre stage. Read More »
