While disappointed with his final results, Rory Bryant has described his debut outing in the Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup as overall “quite a positive weekend”, with the Scotsman pleased with the pace his showed around his home circuit Knockhill.
The former British GT and Britcar racer joined the hugely competitive Supercup field with SV Racing, and took his Vaporized-backed Ginetta G55 GT4 to a pair of top eight finishes across the weekend.
After finishing ninth out of twelve in qualifying, Bryant bounced back from an early retirement in race one to climb through from the back of the grid in race two to eighth, producing some strong overtaking manoeuvres en-route, before replicating that result in race three.
“All in all it has been quite a positive weekend,” said Bryant. “We’ve had a lot of teething issues, as we’ve practically been shaking down the car, so to get to this point having made improvements in each session is remarkable and a testament to the hard work put in by the team.
“Ultimately, I’m disappointed with the results but, at the same time, my pace in clean air was very strong and on par with the established frontrunners. I hope to have an opportunity to drive the car again soon, as I feel on top of it now, which was always going to be the way.”
