That was an intense two weeks, with Donington closely followed by Silverstone a few days later. A mad 10 races in just over one week. The Wolf Motorsport team have been relentless, keeping the car well prepped and ready to go, even throwing in a gearbox change late on Wednesday night.
Ginetta put on a great festival weekend, it was wicked to see the old Senna Toleman F1 car along with the Le Mans Ginettas out on track. We hit the track on Friday for 3 races and one qualifying session.
There were a few guest drivers in the mix this weekend to spice things up. Unfortunately, this meant they weren’t restricted to championship tyres. We were never really going to have the ultimate pace over this weekend, so the game plan was to bag as many points as possible.
I won’t get into every race, as it would be like writing a novel and I haven’t got the skill to keep you gripped for 900 pages of Silverstone…
As I said, the credit for this weekend goes fully to Wolf Motorsport for keeping the car quick all weekend. We were always there in the mix for podiums. When others dropped away, we were there to pick up the points.
My highlight of the weekend was wheel-to-wheel racing with the Ginetta legend Colin White. We traded places and a small amount of paint work over the weekend. Nothing left on the track and smiles all round, it was great to be involved in.
We have now reached the half way point of the Ginetta GT Pro season, it’s been a great first half of the year. Let’s keep the competitive pressure on into the next race at Snetterton next weekend.
Big thank you to all our partners who have helped us get to this point, here's to the next half of the season.
