Regular Britcar 24 participants, Jemco, are bidding for an outright podium according to Team boss and driver, Kevin Hancock. The team's Ginetta is sitting pretty, starting eighteenth on the grid overall and eighth in class.
Jemco's modified GT4 G50 has been punching above its weight all weekend and with a driver line-up that includes British GT regulars Aaron Scot and Craig Wilkins, Hancock feels a class win could be on the cards. “We're in good shape, the car is great fun to drive and I think a class win is achievable. If we were to win our class, I think we could potentially be on the outright podium too.”
Interestingly, Hancock also believes a class three car will win the race overall, “Looking at some of the class one cars, they look a bit fragile and the class two cars, while supremely quick, are very thirsty,” added Hancock.
Previously, Jemco's best result in the Britcar 24 was an outright eighth place back in 2008, again in a G50. The car was running fourth overall until a gearbox failure struck at 7am – a cruel twist that the team hope to avoid again this year.
