Engine Issues Force Walkinshaw To Withdraw Mid-Meeting

1 Mins read

Fergus Walkinshaw had a meeting to forget in the Michelin Ginetta GT Supercup at Snetterton, with engine problems eventually forcing him to withdraw after two of the weekend’s three races.

Walkinshaw’s FW Motorsport outfit detected a potentially terminal engine issue in his G55 after official Friday testing, and replaced the powerplant with a loan engine overnight. This unit had a significant loss of power over his rivals though and after two tough races, the decision was made to withdraw the car

“It’s obviously very disappointing to withdraw the car halfway through the race weekend, but with the significant power issues we are still suffering with the loan engine it would be a destructive decision to continue,” said Walkinshaw.
