by Adam Arbon

Championship leader Jordan Witt dominated the third and final race of the GT Cup Championship at Silverstone. Driving the Bentley Continental GT3, Witt was lapping a second a lap faster than the McLaren MP412C driven by Graham Davidson in second place.

Davidson overtook Witt at the midway part of the race after the Championship leader had to take his success seconds, but with five minutes remaining Witt swiftly regained the lead of the race and never looked back.

The third race of the weekend consisted of pit stops and success time penalties to create more excitement.

Witt was thrilled to finally win a race this weekend, “Delighted to get a win after two difficult races, this will be great for the Championship”.

Davidson had won the previous two races but could not match the pace of the Bentley and had to settle for second place.

Davidson said on the podium, “At the start the race it was busy for me, but I managed my tyres and enjoyed driving the car”.

He added, “Fingers crossed for the next race”.

John Dhillon and Aaron Scott driving the Ferrari 458 GT3 rounded out the podium places, starting second they were overtaken in the early stages by Davidson but managed to hold onto third places and for more valuable points in the Championship.

Nigel Hudson and Adam Wilcox overtook Mike Wilds and Anthony Wilds for fourth place with two minutes remaining. The GTO class Audi R8 GT3 proved too much for the GTC class Ferrari.

The GTB Class race winners Tom Webb and James Webb in the BMW M3 E46 GTR finished ninth overall, the Class leaders dominated the rest of their class to end a very successful weekend for Team Webb.

Brent Millage topped the GTA Class in the third and final race, driving the Ginetta G55, Millage looked visible exhausted stepping out of the car and congratulating his team.

The GTA class is close competition, so coming out on top is a challenge, Millage “Chuffed with the challenging race”.

Peter Littler secured a solid sixth place in the race, with Scott Thomas and Matt Bell finishing seventh in the McLaren 650s Sprint.
