Will Burns lined up in pole position followed by Harry King and Carlito Miracco as the first race of the Ginetta GT4s took to the track at Donington Park.

The grid was minus Tom Barley who has a broken wrist and Simon Rudd, who due to bad planning, was on his stag weekend.

It was an eventful start to round four for a few of the drivers. Colin White only made it to the end of the pits due to the driveshaft issues, resulting in him not competing in the race.

Mike Epps stalled his car, causing a safety car as he got stuck on the start line ending his race as he got pushed back to the pits. Darren Lewis stopped at Redgate corner before retiring to the pits for the rest of the race.

After a ten minute safety car, King rocketed away from the pack, leaving half of a second gap between himself and Burns.

Burns was closely followed by Tom Hibbert and Reece Somerfield. No sooner had the safety car returned to the pits, it was called back out this time for Lee Frost who had run off of the track between Hollywood and Craner Curves. 

With two minutes left after the safety car returned to the pits, Hibbert, Somerfield, Burns, Fin Green and Carl Shield were all battling for a podium finish; with King comfortably in first; which is where he stayed until the end of the race.

However, at McLean’s, Hibbert slid over the grass and fell down the order from third to tenth. Shortly afterwards Green lost a number of places dropping down to fourteenth, allowing Somerfield to move up to second, followed by Burns.

Shield finished the race in fourth, and top Am driver Dan Kirby in fifth. Will Burns took the fastest lap of the race with a time of 1:12.447, while Carl Garnett took the best Am lap time of 1:14.078.
