Mixed Results For Trackspeed At Oulton Park In British GT


Round 1 of the 2014 British GT Championship got underway this weekend with a double header at Oulton Park. The weekend saw mixed fortunes with both highs and lows for Trackspeed, the highlight being a fantastic drive by Jon Minshaw and Phil Keen in the #33 car to take second place honours in Race 2. The weekend, however, would be encapsulated by a ‘never say die’ attitude in all four drivers and by the team themselves. An ethos of never giving up would see the team rebuild a car in an evening, repair damage between races and see all four drivers make their way back through the field when luck had run out.

Nogaro Blancpain Sprint Series Race Report


It was a sweet-and-sour beginning of the Blancpain Sprint Series season for the Belgian Audi Club Team WRT at Nogaro, in the traditional Coupes de Pâques weekend. Once again, the Audis R8 LMS ultra proved competitive on the French circuit. Laurens Vanthoor-César Ramos dominated the qualifying Race on Sunday under the rain, taking a brilliant win ahead of team mates René Rast-Enzo Ide. Frustration started after the race when the second-placed car was disqualified at technical verifications for a small infringement and grew bigger on Easter Monday, when the #1 car was eliminated even before the start of the race! César Ramos, who was starting from the pole was hit during formation lap and that resulted in a broken suspension and the end of the race. Fortunately, the frustration of the Belgian squad was alleviated by the great debut of its youngster pair, Vincent Abril-Mateusz Lisowski, who signed a brilliant debut by taking a double win in the Silver Cup for under-25 drivers, clinching even an overall podium finish (3rd) in the Main Race, where Ide-Rast finished 7th after starting from the back of the grid.
