Britcar 24 Hours: Hour 22 Update

1 Mins read

The typical mad close to an endurance race this is not. Highly predictable, with very little movement between positions makes for a slow end to a race.

Speedwork's Christina Holley was the victim of a harsh judgement, being released too early from a pitstop and incurring a 2 lap penalty. However, Holley kept her head and has held onto 26th position, with all hope of a Top 25 result resting solely on the misfortune of others.

After a blitz start, the remaining Mosler's have been notable by their silence. Lead Mosler, Topcat Racing is currently in fourth position and Strata 21 is nestling in sixth. Further down the field in 23rd place is the Eclipse Mosler of Phil Keen, Michael McInerney and Sean McInerney.

Lower down the field, the Ginetta G40 of Nigel Moore, Stewart Linn, Mike Simpson and Lawrence Tomlinson leads its class by a humungous 13 laps, and leads its overall race position by a respectable two laps.
