George Gamble took his second victory of the year after holding off a spirited Ollie Chadwick in the Protyre Motorsport Ginetta GT5 Challenge at Silverstone.

The Total Control Racing driver took a lights-to-flag victory to improve on his 3rd place finish in yesterday’s opening race of the weekend, after withstanding pressure from race one victor, Chadwick.

The win was born out of a strong start from Gamble, who lead away from a slow starting Chadwick going into Copse for the first time. Also suffering a bad time of things on the opening lap around the Silverstone International Circuit was Frede rick Mortensen; the Dane spinning at Becketts following contact.

Whilst Gamble held his nerve out front, Rockingham race three winner Dennis Strandberg held Gary Simms at bay for the final podium spot. Series rookie Luca Hirst put in his performance of the season to hold off the advances of returning driver Brad Bailey for 4th place.

Further back in the pack saw a titanic battle for G20 honours; with Stuart Pearson leading much of proceedings, it was down to David Pattison and Brian Murphy to challenge the privateer drive for 15th overall.

Despite their efforts though, it was Pearson who held on to take yet another win in the G20 class, whilst Gamble took overall victory out front from Chadwick and Strandberg.
