MTECH Suffer ‘Character Building’ Day At Brands Hatch

1 Mins read

MTECH Racing had a race weekend to forget in the Avon Tyres British GT Championship at Brands Hatch as they were forced to retire for the race with a broken oil line.

Heading in to the race it looked to be going the way of the Ferrari drivers as Duncan Cameron took up second position on the front row in the 458 Italia. Lady luck would soon change her mind as on the fourth lap the Chester-based driver spun off the track down to nineteenth position.

Seven laps later working his way up through the field the #21 Ferrari driver approached the fourteenth placed Ferrari of Hector Lester in to Druids hairpin, as the MTECH driver looked to gain advantage Lester spun in front of him leaving no space to avoid; the contact resulting in a ripped oil line, forcing Cameron to limp home to the pits to retire.

Duncan Cameron talked of the incident that led to his retirement: ” Hector (Lester) spun just two inches in front of me and I had nowhere to go to avoid him. The resultant damage caused an oli leak and the engine temperature shot up to 130 degrees. Game over Iʼm afraid.”

Mike Edmonds, Team Owner and Principal summed up the weekend: “Obviously a very disappointing day for all of the team but motor racing is like this at times. But, weʼll pick ourselves up and bounce back starting next weekend at Paul Ricard for the Blancpain Endurance Series race.”
