LIVE: British GT Championship Round Five – Spa

by Joe Hudson

The British GT Championship has gone abroad for the fifth round of the season for a two hour race around the hills of Spa-Francorchamps and The Checkered Flag will be covering the race live, if the WiFi allows!

Starting on pole position, and leading a massive 60 car field around the Ardennes, is the Team Parker Racing Bentley Continental GT3 of Seb Morris and Rick Parfitt who once again showed the big old Bentley can go supremely fast when the driver takes their brave pills.

In the British GT GT4 class, the Black Bull Ecurie Ecosse McLaren 570S of Ciaran Haggerty and Sandy Mitchell paced the field all weekend and it seemed the only fair result for them to be also starting on pole. However, keeping them honest a row or two behind – thanks to the Competition102 GT4 European Series locking out the places directly behind – is the  Lanan Racing Ginetta G55 GT4 with Alex Reed looking to target the McLaren and snatch the lead over the opening laps.

29 Euro GT4 cars are joining in the fun this weekend with the Racing Team Holland By Ekris Motorsport Ekris M4s claiming first and third in their class with Simon Knap looking to show the British GT lot that they are not to be written off.
