Back on the top step in 2024

The 2024 race season started with a bang last weekend, with the team taking P1 and P4 at the EnduroKA 5hrs of Silverstone!

The race win went the way of the 12 car, driven by Richard Jepp, Will Hillyard and Scott Thompson with all drivers showing the pace and consistency to eventually come out on top. The 12 was locked in an intense battle with the 46 car of Milnair throughout the race, but the issue was eventually settled after a two lap penalty for a pit stop infringement for the 46.

P4 followed the path of our newly constructed 8 car, which, under the control of Gordie Mutch, advanced from P13 to P1 during his initial stint! Unfortunately, a poorly timed pit stop caused the #8 to be delayed at the pit exit for about a minute as the safety car passed, resulting in the car losing a lap and the opportunity to compete for a podium position, rejoining the pack in P8. Despite this setback, Pro-Am regular Darren Midgley utilized his experience and speed to bring the car back into contention after his turn. The next driver, Ollie Furnell (also known as Basic Ollie), made his real-life racing debut! Ollie demonstrated impressive speed to keep up with and challenge the frontrunners, aiding the 8 in climbing back up the rankings to secure a very commendable P4 out of the 35 cars participating in the race.

This was a fantastic result for the team and a great way to start the season! Want to get in on the race action? Seats available for the next round, the Donington Park 5hr!
