British GT 2019 from Silverstone Video and Gallery
Somehow we got a great break in the weather and the full race was dry, and what a dry race it was. Unbelievably there was no safety car, which was surprising with how hard the teams were pushing. Things started smoothly with the Aston of TF Sport, Merc of Ram Racing and McLaren of Balfe Motorsport all having goes leading the race. Unfortunately, as things would go on the Balfe McLaren would eventually hit a problem, and although it was fixed, this would drop it back into the pack.
Things in GT4 were just as fast and frantic with the pole leading TF Sport Aston stumbling into multiple stop/go penalties through the race. Ruining their race and dropping them down the field, this didn’t stop them from showing pace though and grabbing fastest lap. Tolman Motorsport was next up to lead, but after the final pitstop disaster struck. A technical problem developed itself and ended up putting the car out of contention. This left the constantly quick moving Merc of Team Parker to pick up its first win of the season, after bad luck in the opening 4 rounds.
Back in GT3, we had Johnny Adam in the Aston of TF Sport leading and Callum Macleod in the Merc of Ram Racing hunting him down on fresher tires. Traffic was playing its part but eventually, the Merc did latch onto the back of the Aston. But Johnny Adam being the demon driver he is was doing a good job at holding in the Merc off. The defining moment of the race came at Maggots and Becketts though, and it wasn’t pretty at all. The leaders came up on the number 15 Mustang GT4, which unfortunately came into contact with the Aston of Adam twice. The end result, the Aston suffered suspension damage and the race for the lead was over.
Up until then, it was a great race, and it could be said Johnny Adam might well have had the number of Callum Macleod in the Merc. But that wasn’t how it played out. Next, they are onto Donnington for the next round.
