birkett15 (25)A very soggy Silverstone provided a challenge for the 68 teams that contested the 65th Birkett 6hrs Relay. In the scratch race Inspires (all Spire GT3’s) used their fastest driver, Tim Gray, to good effect to take victory by a lap with 128 laps in total, just getting an extra lap in before the flag dropped for 6 hours completed. Third Time Lucky (Radicals) came in 2nd overall missing out on getting on the same lap as the winners by 14 seconds, and leading at 4hr mark. The podium was completed by The Defibrillators (Vision, Phantom & Mallocks) a further 6 laps back.

In the handicap race it was a much closer affair with the battle for the lead going down to the last half an hour of the race. Team Owens (Civic Type R’s) took victory along with 5th overall in the scratch race. Long time leaders were Carbon8 Coupe Cup B (Hyundai Coupe’s) , who finished a lap down and 2nd place after leading at the hour mark each hour, throughout the race. They finished just ahead of their sister team Carbon8 Coupe Cup A (Hyundai Coupe’s), just under two minutes ahead after 6 hours of racing.
