After a strong start to the season Legends racer Lawrence Davey leads the GrandAm 200 Challenge in pursuit of a drive at next year's Continental Tires Series race on the Rolex 24 weekend at Daytona International Speedway.

It was the second weekend of the 2012 season where Legends racing veteran Davey moved to the top of the challenge standings, winning five out of the six races at Silverstone and taking two fastest laps. Production Touring car driver Gary Duckman, however, is just five points behind Davey.

“With a very good start to the season I have found myself leading the Legends Cars championship and the Sunoco GRAND-AM Challenge,” said Davey. “Every race I set myself a target and out of 18 races I have only failed to meet my target once. That was only down to accident damage, but I still managed a top 10 finish.”

“Since the last meeting we have made some improvements to the car, so I am confident that I can keep hitting my personal targets. I am confident that I can win the Legends Cars Championship as I have an 880 point lead and also if my current form continues hopefully the Sunoco GRAND-AM Challenge.” 

Though both hampered by small grid sizes Martin Byford and Harry Cockill are third and fourth with points garnered from the British Endurance Championship (BEC) and Britcar Production Cup respectively. Byford, racing in Class Three of the BEC has been strong all season in the Bullrun Lotus Evora, clinching an unlikely overall win in the most recent round at Oulton Park.

Cockill's fellow Production Cup competitor Mike Jordan lies sixth in the Challenge standings, with regular co-driver Nigel Ainge further back in ninth place.

Among the top ten drivers Linton Stutley rose 22 places into seventh after a perfect weekend of two wins, two poles and two fastest laps in the MSV F3 Cup to become the open-wheel series' only representative in the top ten the season after MSV F3 champion Aaron Steele became the first winner of the Sunoco Grand-Am 200 Challenge.

2023 tested us with endurance racing challenges, pushing an ex-British Touring car in Class C. Despite DNFs and setbacks, adapting to diverse BTCC cars was a valuable learning experience. Securing 2nd in Class showcased our determination and fitness. Looking ahead to 2024, I aim for quantifiable success, seeking wins in a level playing field.
