Britcar 24 Hours: Hour 15 Update

1 Mins read

The fifteenth hour of the Britcar 24 hour endurance race saw racing resume again. With most drivers on their second stint, having recently woken from a brief state of slumber, drivers could be forgiven for their less than energetic restart.

Jet Alliance's Porsche began the arduous task of re-building its huge overall lead. And, with Lukas Lichtner-Hoyer at the helm, the German made short work of re-lapping the MJC Ferrari.

Neil Garner Motorsport's Aztk Porsche began staking a serious claim for an outright podium. The Wiltshire based team held third position for over five hours and the championship class front-runners are on course to not just win their class.

Englishman Sam Hancock finished his longest stint in the early hours of the morning, but Chris Porritt was more than able to supply the pace required to push the Aston Martin N24 GT4 on, regularly posting times only a couple of seconds off leaders.

The self-built TVR Sagaris GTR of GTF Race Cars pulled over by Bridge at 7am. Having show good pace, an endurance race of this length was a step too far.

Lotus Motorsport's Evora GT car made a re-appearance at 7am, heavily bandaged and featuring what can only be described as 'creative' bodywork re-styling. Another British motorsport legend having a memorable day – but for the right reasons – was Hugh Chamberlain's Aston Martin GT4. The Vantage Racing boys including Stuart Hall and Tom Black were 13th as this article was written.
