BRCA GT National Series Rd3 report

Walker-Catchpole wins at BRCA GT National Series

The third round of the BRCA GT National Series was held at the Killamarsh Sports Centre and was hosted by the SWIFTS club. The club set out a well-conceived track layout which included a flowing infield and a long straight, which required some serious thought by the drivers when deciding what gear ratio to run. In GT12 the field was joined by a couple of experienced LMP12 drivers, for their first taste of GT12 National racing, who were hoping to qualify in the A-final. This was no mean feat for them, as the standard of driving at the top end was highly competitive and qualifying times were extremely close. In fact throughout the field, there were some very close battles in qualifying and the finals.

At the end of the four rounds of qualifying, Adam Walker-Catchpole qualified in pole position in the A final. The A-main then was led by Adam for most of the final, a couple of racing incidents early on in the race dropped Colin Price, coming from 3rd on the grid, down the field. Colin then put in a great performance to fight back to second in the closing laps. A small mistake by Adam on the last lap saw Colin nearly taking the honours. However, as the buzzer went it was Adam who crossed the line first with Colin finishing a close 2nd. Andy Murray put in a solid performance to finish 3rd. The final round of the GT National series will be held at Chesterfield on April 26th 2015.
