MTech F458 leading away from Trackspeed GT3 Rs

With so much motorsport happening overseas at the minute (Le Mans 24h last weekend, Nürburg 24h next), one could be forgiven for forgetting about the races happening within the UK.

Happily ThePitwall hasn't - we made the trek down to Brands today for 4th round of  British GT.

British GT is more or less a formulae SRO/FIA nationale championship, similar to Belcar in Belgium and the GT Masters in Germany, run to the FIA GT3 / SRO GT4 regulations.

Here they opted for a single 2 hour race, rather than the 2 x 1 hour race, generally favoured elsewhere.

After a mess up at the start - where seemingly half the cars failed to notice the start, it quickly became a thrilling battle at the front, between the Stuttgart stallions, represented by the Trackspeed Porsche GT3 R, and the Prancing ponies of Modena represented by the Ferrari F458 Italias of CRS and MTech Racing.

Conditons were typical british summer - ideal for drifting


Eventually the Trackspeed GT3 R of Bridgman/Fiseken won out, securing the checkered flag with a under 5 second gap to 2nd placed Griffin/Cameron in their MTech 458.
