PFL Motorsport to miss British GT’s Spa day

1 Mins read

Pete Littler and Jody Fannin sadly won’t be on the grid for the British GT Championship away day to Spa-Francorchamps as their PFL Motorsport team recovers from a post-race incident at Silverstone.

When the team were packing away their Aston Martin Vantage GT3, a nasty incident saw the car come crashing off the truck’s tail lift – injuring three members of the crew in the process, thankfully none seriously.

However, repairing the damage – and having to deal with the insurance claim – has meant the team couldn’t get ready for the trip to Belgium in time.

PFL Motorsport team manager Paul Risbridger said: “We had planned on leaving this Sunday to make a pre event test but although the guys have worked hard to get the car repaired unfortunately time has just run out on us.”

This also unfortunately means that the team and drivers Littler and Fannin can’t build on the good progress they made at the Silverstone 500 earlier in June.

Peter Littler said: “It is a pity but the team has set itself high professional standards in its first year and should not compromise on the preparation needed for this event both on safety and performance grounds.  Obviously after our strong run in the last round where the PFL Aston was running as high as 4th during the race we are all keen to carry the momentum forward to the Belgian event but we will now refocus and be fully prepared for the next event.”

That next event will be the penultimate weekend of the 2016 British GT season – the two one-hour races at Snetterton on August 7&8.
