elms13 (33)A packed weekend down at Silverstone and this is installment one from the Saturday. We got two European Formula 3 races, qualifying for the World Endurance Championship but the main feature was European Le Mans Series qualifying, followed by the 3 hour race. With the rain clouds setting in towards the end of the first hour the race became a battle of who could keep it on the track. A safety car followed at about 1hr 40mins in and the race was neutralised until the 75% race distance point had been reached and the red flag could be dropped, with full points awarded.

Simon Dolan & Oliver Turvey (Zytek Nissan) took victory for Jota Sport with Michel Frey & Patric Niederhauser (Oreca Judd) of Race Performance 2nd and Jonathan Hirschi & Pierre Thirjet (Oreca Nissan) completing the podium for Thirjet by TDS Racing. In LMPC Anthony Pons & Soheil Ayari won in their Formual Le Mans Oreca. In GTE Christian Ried, Gianluca Roda & Nicholas Tandy (Porsche 911 GT3 RSR) were victorious for Proton Competition with the GTC category going to the Ecurie Ecosse BMW Z4 of Ollie Millroy, Andrew Smith & Alasdair McCaig.
